Understanding Your Needs

To help us understand your needs and provide the most competitive price, here is the step-by-step process for renting a drop box for your residence.

Step 1 - Determine Materials to Be Removed

Describe in writing the type and amount of materials you need removed and determine if they fall into any of these categories:

HOUSEHOLD WASTE Items placed inside the home or building after it was built like clothes, furniture, carpet, etc.
CONSTRUCTION & DEMOLITION (C&D) DEBRIS Materials used to build a house or structure like boards, wood, drywall, windows, doors, plywood, toilets, bathtubs, shower stalls, cabinets, countertops, etc.
HEAVY MATERIALS High density materials like concrete, stone, asphalt, dirt, sod, brick block, stumps logs, asphalt shingles, etc.
UNACCEPTABLE ROLL OFF ITEMS Appliances with Freon, asbestos, ashes, batteries, barrels, electronics, Household Hazardous Waste, liquids, medical waste, oils/gasoline, and propane tanks.

Step 2 - Check Area for Roll Off Placement

Before ordering a container, it is wise to check and measure the area where you want the drop box placed.

  • Check for overhead hazards (up to 20 feet) for power lines, tree branches
  • Check that no cars will block access before delivery and on pickup day
  • Containers placed on the street or blocking a sidewalk requires the homeowner to acquire a permit from the local municipal government clerk office. 

Step 3 - Choose a Drop Box Size

Our experienced professionals can help you select the right size for your residential cleanout, remodel or demolition project.
