Dumpster Rental Payment Policy
All Checks must be made payable to: The Dumpster Divers. Payment is due prior to, or at the time of, dumpster delivery. We also accept most major credit cards over the phone, or through Paypal online, for any dumpster rental service. We will only accept cash for your dumpster rental in person prior to or upon delivery of your dumpster. If cash is the preferred method of payment of your dumpster rental, The Dumpster Divers will still require credit card information to cover possible dumpster weight overages or any other extra charges that may apply upon disposal of trash. For more information on dumpster weight limits and additional dumpster rental fees, please click on “Pricing“. The Dumpster Divers reserves the right to charge a fee, no greater than that allowed by law on all customer checks returned for insufficient funds for any dumpster rental service.
All dumpster rental prices include a 10 day time allowance unless prior arrangements for an extension of dumpster rental services have been agreed upon by The Dumpster Divers. For every day after that dumpster rental time allowance the customer will be charged $10 per day unless another agreed upon price has been negotiated. Special arrangements must be made prior to extending the rental. Rental period extensions are only granted if agreed upon by The Dumpster Divers. The Dumpster Divers reserves the right to pick up the dumpster at any time after the allowed rental period (10 days) if the customer has not been in contact with us to arrange for an extension. Extensions must be made no less than 48 hours in advance.
Each size dumpster has its own included weight limit. Please see the details of 10 yard, 15 yard and 20 yard dumpster rentals on our “Pricing” page. Any dumpster rental overages will be charged by the pound at a prorated fee of $100 per ton. The weight of your dumpster will be assessed upon disposal at the transfer station. If overage or any other fees or charges associated with your dumpster rental apply, payment will be due at that time. If the customer has paid by credit card, you are agreeing to allow us to apply extra charges directly on that credit card.
The Dumpster Divers cannot dispose of any hazardous waste. The term “hazardous material” shall include but not be limited to, any amount of waste listed or characterized as hazardous by the United States Environmental Protection Agency or any state agency pursuant to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, an enabled or applicable state law. The customer expressly agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless The Dumpster Divers from and against any and all damages, penalties, fines and liabilities resulting from or arising out of dumpster rental costumers improper disposal of hazardous waste.

Dumpster Rental Use, Care, and Placement
The dumpster rental customer will be responsible for designating a specific drop off location for the container. Please keep in mind that the delivery truck and dumpster are very large and heavy. The designated area must have unobstructed access for delivery and pick up of any dumpster. If The Dumpster Divers are unable to retrieve the dumpster due to obstructed access, there may be an additional charge associated with the dumpster rental service.
There will not be an additional fee if container cannot be removed due to poor weather conditions. However, the pick up date may get pushed off until conditions improve. Please make every attempt to clear your driveway of snow and ice before a scheduled delivery or pick up. If no attempt is made by the customer to clear the driveway of snow and ice in a reasonable time frame an additional charge may apply. We do not recommend dumpster placement over septic or sprinkler systems. A flat hard surface, such as a driveway or parking lot, is ideal to place your dumpster. We will supply wooden planks under each container to help prevent any indentations on asphalt. However, The Dumpster Divers can not be held liable for any property damage associated with the customers designated dumpster location.
The customer agrees to fill the container no more than level with the top edge of the container. Anything above that will need to be removed by hand and left behind. Transporting an overloaded dumpster is hazardous, unlawful and could be subject to a fine. In the event of an overloaded dumpster, the customer will be charged an additional fee of $50 for the excess waste removal.
The customer assumes all responsibilities for the dumpster while in their care, and will be held liable for any unreasonable or excess damage sustained (aside from normal wear and tear) while on their property.
