When should I have my dumpster delivered?

We recommend you have your dumpster delivered the day before you need it for a project.

Not only do we recommend this, but we have built our pricing structure around it. We don’t count the dumpster delivery day or the dumpster pick up day in the rental period.

You can be confident you will be able to use your dumpster for the full 3, 7, or 10 days when you rent from Wise Guys Dumpsters.

Do you offer same day dumpster delivery?

In most cases, we can provide same day delivery. Call us for availability and so we can provide a rush for your order.

We know situations change, or other dumpster companies back out. We are here for you when that occurs. And will do everything we can to get you a dumpster so you can start your project.

We, however, recommend that you plan ahead, if at all possible. Booking your dumpster delivery a day before your project begins will ensure it is available for you to use the moment you're ready to start your project.

As mentioned above, we won't ever penalize you for ordering your dumpster delivery a day before. You will always get the full days for which you booked.

How do I prepare my site for dumpster delivery?

Ensure the area is free from vehicles or other obstacles and is easily accessible for our delivery trucks.

Is there anything I can't put in the dumpster?

Unfortunately, there are a few things that the Denton County landfill won’t allow and a few other things that are allowed but require special care.

Not allowed:

  • No paint
  • No tires
  • No batteries
  • No chemicals
  • No rocks
  • No dirt
  • No concrete
  • No bricks
  • No shingles unless spread out over multiple dumpsters. If you are a roofing company, we can serve you, but please give us a call so we can talk about the best approach for your work site.

Allowed with exceptions:

  • Appliances are allowed, but there is a $10 charge per larger appliance item, such as a refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, etc.
  • Please let us know if you place appliances in the dumpster, and how many, we are required to take those to a different area of the dump when disposing of them.
  • If you are demolishing a brick house, items such as rocks, dirt, concrete, bricks, and shingles, you would be better off with a dump trunk rather than a dumpster.

What should I do if I have paint to dispose of?

If you have paint you need to dispose of, you can put kitty litter in it and once it has dried, your county/city will have a facility that you can take it to.

How much does a dumpster rental cost?

Prices can vary depending on location, length of rental and weight of what you are disposing of but, for most customers, dumpsters start at are $375 for a medium sized (15 Cubic Yard) dumpster and $400 for a large (20 Cubic Yards) dumpster.

What is the difference between a 15 yard and a 20 yard?

They are identical except that the 15 yard is 4 foot tall. The 20 yard is 6 foot tall. All our dumpsters have barn doors that open on the back, so you can completely walk into them, making it easy to load them efficiently.
