What size front end dumpsters do you have?

We also offer 2, 4, 6, and 8-yard front end dumpsters.

What size dumpster do I need?

The dumpster size needed is dependent of the material being placed inside and frequency of service. The following diagrams reflect the sizes of the dumpsters. If further assistance is needed when choosing a dumpster size reach out to us and we will be glad to assist you.

What is included in the price of a roll off dumpster?

Our price quote includes pickup, delivery, a weight allotment, and a 7-day loading period. Any additional weight will accrue charges. There will also be a fee assessed for each day the dumpster is kept past the 7 days.

Is there anything that cannot go in the dumpster?

Hazardous materials of any kind are not permitted inside of the dumpsters. This includes asbestos and hazardous liquid waste. Tires are not to be placed inside of dumpsters. Grayhound is a licensed tire hauler and will gladly pickup any scrap tires.

Cement, asphalt, and dirt are not to be mixed with any other materials and must be placed in either a 10- or 20-yard roll-off dumpster. These dense materials cannot be placed in any dumpster larger than a 20-yard dumpster due to weight.

Am I charged for extra weight?

Can I put high weight materials in the dumpster such as dirt or concrete?

All dense materials such as asphalt, concrete, dirt, sand, and brick must be placed in either a 10- or 20-yard dumpster. These materials must be kept separate from all other items.

Due to the increased weight of such dense materials, the dumpsters can only be filled halfway. Dumpsters filled to capacity will be too heavy for our trucks to lift. It will be the responsibility of the customer to remove the excess content from the dumpster.

Can I overfill the dumpster?

No. dumpsters should not be filled above the top of the rim of the dumpster. Any dumpsters that are overfilled will not be collected and will be subjected to additional fees.

If I completely fill up the dumpster, can I leave the remaining waste beside the dumpster?

How much notice is needed if I want to cancel my order?

Grayhound asks for a minimum of a day’s notice for cancellations.

What do I do if my trash or service is missed?
