Do I Need a Permit to Rent a Dumpster?

Do you need a rental dumpster permit? The answer solely depends on where you’ll have your dumpster placed. If you plan to place your dumpster container on your residential driveway or your own property, then you won’t require any permit. But what happens when you have too much trash that requires a larger dumpster? In such cases, homeowners may need to use the street or public property. If you use any public area, you’ll need a permit. However, keep in mind that dumpster permit requirements vary from city to city. We’ve gathered all you need to know about dumpster permits to help you run your project smoothly in case you need a permit.

Circumstances When You Need a Permit for Dumpster Rental

You only need a dumpster permit if you intend to drop off or place your container directly on public property like sidewalks or on the street. The license issued is commonly referred to as a right-of-way or street permit and is acquired from the city’s building department or public works. Dumpster permit regulations differ in each city. For instance, some cities only require a permit if the container is placed on public property, while others need a permit even if the container is visible to passersby.

If you place your dumpster on your privately-owned property, you don’t need to acquire a dumpster rental permit. However, if you reside in a neighborhood managed by a homeowner’s association, you might need permission from the association before you place the dumpster on a residential street. Again, this will depend on the laws and regulations put in place by your homeowner’s association.

How Do You Obtain Your Dumpster Rental Permit?

Does your location require a dumpster permit? If so, who is responsible for applying for the dumpster permit? In some locations, it is the responsibility of the customer to obtain the permit. In others, it falls on the dumpster service company.

If your city requires the customer to obtain a permit, the public works department can confirm that fact. You’ll have to fill in some documents, and depending on your city, the process can be done via phone, online, or in person.

Also, if you live in a neighborhood regulated by a homeowners’ association, be sure to confirm the regulations put in place. This way, you’ll be sure if you’re allowed to place your container on your driveway or on a residential street. Once everything is in place, you can now schedule the dumpster rental.
