Roll-Off Dumpster Permit Information
Because roll-off dumpsters are quite large, many people assume they need some sort of permit to be able to attain one; however, unless you are placing a roll-off dumpster on public property, you likely won’t need a special permit to have one.
If you're planning to leave the roll-off container on your own property (i.e. a driveway or a yard) no permit is required. Some residential areas require permits, though, regardless of where you place the roll-off dumpster so it’s important to check with your local city or town hall just in case.
If you plan to place your dumpster on public property, or on questionable private property, it’s important to make sure you don't need a special permit to do so. Roll-off dumpsters are big and bulky so often times permission is required if you want to store them on a location that is not technically your property.
Getting a permit for temporary roll-off dumpster placement is not difficult; however attempting to place dumpsters in restricted areas without one could prove costly. Your local city or town hall will have information regarding permits and will gladly help you attain one if necessary. It’s in your best interest to do the research ahead of time, or ask your roll-off dumpster supplier.
It is the same everywhere that any container placed on a street is required to have a permit. It is public property and therefore requires the permission of that city. Not to mention, placing large roll-off dumpsters in certain areas could be dangerous and cause unfortunate accidents.
