Why Restrictions Matter

Before tossing items into your rented dumpster, it’s important to understand why certain materials are prohibited.

These restrictions are in place due to environmental concerns, safety issues, and local landfill regulations.

Improper disposal of certain materials can lead to hazardous situations and hefty fines, making it essential for renters to stay informed.

Items Not Allowed in a Dumpster

Here's a list of items that you absolutely cannot place in your Wise Guys dumpster:

Call us and we will bring out a roll off dumpster for your next yard project.

  • No Paint: Paint contains chemicals that can be hazardous.
  • No Tires: Tires do not decompose and can damage landfill structures.
  • No Batteries: They contain acids and heavy metals, posing environmental risks.
  • No Chemicals: Hazardous waste can contaminate soil and water.
  • No Rocks: Their weight and volume can damage the dumpster.
  • No Dirt: Excess dirt can be problematic for landfill operations.
  • No Concrete: Its heaviness can exceed weight limits and damage the dumpster.
  • No Bricks: Like concrete, bricks are too heavy and can damage the dumpster.
  • No Shingles: Unless spread out over multiple dumpsters, as they can overload a single container.

Items Allowed with Exception

While certain items are not outright banned, they require special handling:

Appliances: You can dispose of appliances, but there's a $10 charge per large item.

This includes refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, etc.

Please notify us about any appliances in the dumpster for proper disposal.

Alternative Disposal Methods

For items that are not allowed in your dumpster, consider alternative disposal methods.

Many communities have specialized facilities for hazardous waste, electronic waste, and large items like appliances.

Contact your local waste management authority for guidance. Here is the information for Denton County.

Frequently Asked

How long are your rentals?

We offer 3 options 3 days, 7 days, and 10 days. If you wish to keep the dumpster longer than the initial rental period, the fee is $10/day. If you have a commercial or construction project, we offer a 14 day rental with an overage fee of $5 a day. We also offer custom pricing to fit your needs. If you need custom pricing, give us a call.

What happens if I keep it longer than the rental period?

We charge a $10/day fee after the initial rental period is over. For those taking advantage of our construction project pricing, the overage feee is $5/day. If you need a dumpster for a bigger construction project or commercial project, we would love to talk.

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.
