Houston Dumpsters' Frequently Asked Questions

Please take a second to look through some of the questions that our customers frequently ask. If you cannot find the answer to your question here, feel free to contact a Houston Dumpsters representative at (713) 999-4291.

Who are we at Houston Dumpsters?

We are a brand new local dumpster rental company servicing the area of Houston as well as 2 other Texas locations.

When is Houston Dumpsters open?

Our business hours are 6 AM - 6 PM, throughout all week.

Can I use a construction dumpster for concrete, soil or other heavy waste materials?

We are able to accept inert materials like dirt or concrete; however, some materials have certain disposal fees associated with them. Be sure to let us know on your call if there are any kind of special materials that have to be handled differently.

How far in advance should I rent a dumpster?

We're happy to rent dumpsters with as little as an hour's notice. However, we recommend that you call us at least a couple of days in advance to make sure that we have your dumpster size in inventory. Certain periods of the year tend to be busier than others so we can't guarantee we have the size you need unless you call in advance.

How is the rental price determined?

There are a number of factors that influence dumpster rental prices. The two biggest ones are your location and the amount of debris you need to get rid of. Location affects the price because of fuel charges for the dumpster truck as well as the taxes we have to pay to the nearest landfill or waste processing plant. The volume of waste affects the price as there are certain weight restrictions depending on landfill and local regulations.

What porta potty rental options does Houston Dumpsters offer?

We offer both standard and specialty porta-potty units (VIP stalls). For added comfort and sanitation we can also provide hand-wash stations.

Do you have any restrictions on the type of materials that you allow to be thrown out?

We prohibit the disposal of hazardous and bio-hazardous materials in our dumpsters. If there is an appliance or a certain kind of material that you're unsure of fits in any of these categories, give us a call at (713) 999-4291. Even if we can't accept it we will suggest a solution to get rid of it. Here is a small list that should clarify to you what we do not accept:

Railroad ties
Paints and lacquers
Oils (motor oil, industrial lubricants)
Infectious waste
Contaminated soil and other absorbents
Ink and resins
Fuel (gasoline, petroleum, etc)

Is there a limit to how much I can put in the dumpster?

Yes. We will not accept pick-up of a dumpster that is loaded over the top. Generally speaking, we recommend that you load up the dumpster up to 50% to 70% of its total capacity, depending on the weight of the materials. It's always better to get a bigger dumpster than to get a small one that cannot be picked up because it has been overloaded.

Won't the dumpster damage my driveway?

Because of the weight of the dumpster, it is possible that the unit may damage tiled surfaces if these are not covered with some kind of protective material. We recommend that you cover the area where the dumpster will be placed with some sheets of plywood in order to prevent any accidental damage to your property.

Why are they called "roll-off" dumpsters?

These containers are named so because they literally roll off the back of a truck. The roll-off dumpster is the most common type of dumpster that we offer.
