Q. How can I load the heavy items into the Dumpster?
A. Our dumpsters have a gate on the end of the dumpster that is facing your home. This gate can be swung open and lay back against the side of the dumpster to allow you to walk into the dumpster for easy loading. No need to try to heave things up and over the side of the dumpster!

Q. Do I have to put wood down on my driveway?

Q. What happens if it rains?
A. The dumpster is not water tight and usually during the process of loading, you will have the gate of the dumpster open. When we remove the dumpster if there is water sitting in the dumpster it will run out during the process of putting it up onto the truck.
