Frequently Asked Questions on Our Dumpster Rental Services

When Can I Get My Dumpster?

Yes, if an order is placed early enough in the morning, we're usually able to deliver the container by the end of the day. Orders placed later in the day will be scheduled for delivery on the following morning. We appreciate 24 hours' notice when ordering a dumpster but we'll always work to accommodate you.

For How Long Can I Rent a Container?

A container can be rented for up to 2 weeks. Arrangements can be made as needed for extra time.

When Can You Deliver a Container?

We deliver Monday through Friday between 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM and on Saturday between 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

How Do I Determine Which Dumpster Size Is Best for My Project?

If you're a business owner and you seek scheduled weekly services on a permanent ongoing basis, you need to schedule commercial dumpster services.

If you're seeking dumpster services on a temporary basis for a cleanout, home remodel, construction project, or any other temporary project, a roll-off dumpster is the correct choice.

Ensuring you select the correct dumpster size for your project can save you time and money. A dumpster that is too small will cost you more by requiring you to schedule additional hauls to remove all of the debris, while a dumpster that is too large will cause you to incur initial unnecessary expenses if a smaller one would have been enough. See our dumpster dimensions and sizes to help you select the best dumpster for your needs.

Note that each cubic yard will hold roughly 15 (30-gallon) kitchen-sized trash bags or about 6 (30-gallon) large trash bags.

How Much Space Is Required for the Dumpster?

You'll find dumpster dimensions listed on this site for each dumpster type. It's recommended that you provide space to accommodate double the amount of the width and height of the dumpster to assure adequate height and space clearance. Also, consider an additional 10' for the door that swings open at the back of the dumpster.

Will a Roll-Off Dumpster Damage My Driveway or Pavement?

A full roll-off dumpster can be very heavy depending on its size and the type of materials that are placed inside the container. Thus, we highly recommend customers to take all necessary actions to prevent any potential damage to their driveways and pavements by placing wood on the driveway where the container will be placed.

The customer affirms that any right-of-way provided by the customer (disclosed in delivery questions) for the roll-off container is sufficient to bear the weight of all the contractors’ dumpster equipment and vehicles required to perform the contracted service.

The customer assumes all liabilities for damages to private driving surfaces, pavements or road surfaces, and the entire roll-off container placement site. A-1 Excel Disposal of Wisconsin and its affiliates shall not be responsible for any damages to any private driving surface, pavement, or accompanying subsurface of any route associated to perform the service that was contracted.

Can the Dumpster Be Placed on the Street?

Permits may be required. Check with your local municipality for specific rules and regulations.

What Items Are Not Allowed to Be Placed Inside the Dumpster?

Hazardous waste, dirt, industrial waste, chemical products, radioactive material, oil filters, herbicides and pesticides, solvents, paint (except completely dried latex paint cans, no liquids), other flammable liquids, aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission oil / lubricating / hydraulic oil / oil filters, contaminated oils (mixed with solvents, gasoline, etc.), antifreeze, petroleum-contaminated soil / lead paint chips, tires, appliances, fluorescent tubes, batteries, computers, monitors, televisions, microwaves, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, animals, barrels, and all liquids.

All the materials must be level at the top of the container - nothing can be sticking out of the top. Additional requirements may apply based on the locality. The liability for maintaining appropriate and permissible waste material remains with the customer as agreed to in the terms and conditions when contracting with A-1 Excel Disposal of Wisconsin.

Is It Necessary for Someone to Be on Location When the Dumpster Is Delivered or Removed?

It's not necessary to have someone on-site for delivery or removal of the dumpster. However, be as detailed as possible when answering the delivery questions as the driver will use their judgment and place the dumpster in the safest accessible area.

If an on-site contact is not available for delivery, you'll be responsible for all charges involved with the relocation of the dumpster, should it be necessary. For removal, the customer agrees to provide unobstructed access to the dumpster on the scheduled pickup day; if the dumpster is inaccessible, the customer is subject to additional pickup charges, as terms and conditions may apply.

What If I Need an Extra Haul?

You can have additional hauls with your order. Additional charges will apply.

Will I Be Billed for Extra Weight?

Yes, if your tonnage goes over the included tons quoted in your initial order, you'll be charged additional costs according to the applicable terms and conditions.
