Dumpster Rentals with Moon Dumpsters

Renting a dumpster is a great way to handle personal, commercial, and other types of projects. There are a lot of sizes and types of dumpsters that you can select from in the process. Here’s an overview of the dumpster rentals we offer and recommend for different projects.

Residential Dumpster Rentals

Moon Dumpsters offers a variety of dumpsters for rent that can take care of any size residential job. Our residential dumpsters are ideal for kitchen and bathroom demolitions, remodeling projects, and more. These dumpsters start as small as 6 cubic yards and go all the way up to 20 cubic yards.

A 6 yard dumpster is a great option for smaller remodeling projects like a small kitchen demolition, a basement overhaul, or redoing a garage. Many of our customers also choose this size for a lawn or yard cleanup. It offers enough space for those smaller projects at a great price.

A 9 yard dumpster offers a bit more space then the 6 yarder. As such, it’s a perfect fit for a normal sized kitchen remodeling job, or even a small kitchen plus bathroom remodel. It is also great for a deck demolition up to dimensions of 10’x18’. This dumpster will serve more medium-sized basement or garage renovations well too.

12 and 16 yard dumpsters offer extra space that you may need for some of those larger remodeling or demolition projects around the house. A large kitchen, basement, or garage that you are working on would benefit from this size. Our customers who are working on multiple smaller or average-sized projects tend to select this size too, given the extra space it provides. In particular, the 16 yard dumpster is a good option for multi-project needs given the large amount of debris and items it can hold.

Our 20 yard dumpster is the largest residential dumpster we offer. It has the capacity to handle all of the projects our smaller dumpsters can, at a larger scale. It’s also a good fit for a significant home addition project, a large fencing job, or a multi-deck demolition. This is the dumpster to rent if you know you’ll have a lot of material to content with.

30 and 40 Yard Dumpsters

Moon’s 30 and 40 yard dumpsters are an excellent choice for commercial jobs that need space for waste at a large scale. Our customers typically include contractors, construction sites, large building demolitions, and even commercial recycling jobs. The massive space these dumpsters offer make them very useful for large scale professional jobs.

Do You Need a Dumpster Permit?

Dumpsters provide an excellent way for you to clear waste as you tackle a project. Depending on how and where you’re using one, you may need a dumpster permit. It can be a bit confusing, so today on the blog we’ll walk you through dumpster permits!

General Rules

In most cases, you will only need a dumpster permit if you will be placing the dumpster on public property. This includes public streets and sidewalks. This may be the case for you if there’s limited room in your situation. If, however, you have the space to put a dumpster on your driveway or any other private property, you won’t have to worry! There’s no need to get a permit in that case.

Dumpster Permit Process

If you do need to place a dumpster on public property, there are a few things you need to consider. In many cases, you can put a dumpster on a public road or sidewalk- you’ll just need a permit to do so. However, there may be places where you can’t so you should always check with your locality first. This includes specific neighborhoods- if you have a neighborhood association, they may have rules about if/how dumpsters are permitted on streets.

If there is a permit process, here’s how it normally works. Many localities have ‘right-of-way’ permits that give you the ability to place a dumpster on a public street. You must apply for and receive this permit before you can place your dumpster.

You need to know a few things to fill out this permit most of the time. First, how long will you need your dumpster on public space? You will have to give a specific date range on the paperwork. Second, where exactly will the dumpster be? You will also need to give the exact address and location of the dumpster. Third, who are you renting your dumpster from? You’ll be asked to provide contact information for the rental company on the permit.

Other Things to Know

Here are some other insider tips. Always contact both your local public works department and any relevant neighborhood association. This is the way you will be able to learn about any specific rules and processes (for our Louisville readers, check out Metro Public Works’ web page). Additionally, permit processes can take time, so you should try to submit your permit application at least a week in advance of when you need to use your dumpster. One last thing- you can work with your dumpster rental company to help things go smoothly! At Moon Dumpsters, we can help make sure you time your dumpster delivery perfectly so you have the proper permit when you need it. We also ensure deliveries and pickups go off without a hitch.

What is Dumpster Diving?

Dumpster diving involves salvaging goods from dumpsters, often those from businesses. The legality of dumpster diving and people’s opinions on it are complex. Let’s examine some of the key points about dumpster diving.

Legality of Dumpster Diving

The legality of dumpster diving varies country to country. Dumpster diving is actually legal at the federal level in the United States. It is also legal at the state level in all 50 states. It’s the county and city/town levels in which it can be illegal in some or all scenarios. Additionally, where dumpsters are located can affect the legality of dumpster diving. If a dumpster is on private property or if it’s locked, you would likely be breaking laws to dumpster dive. For example, walking onto someone’s private property to dumpster dive without permission would be illegal.

Perspectives from Business Owners

Businesses often have dumpsters that people may want to salvage in. However, every business owner has a unique perspective on this activity. Some may support recycling or reusing discarded products, while others may discourage it. Some may also worry about liability if someone were to get hurt while diving on their property. Others are more concerned about the mess people can leave from dumpster diving. On the other hand, there are some businesses where owners are willing to discuss the option and give permission.

Perspectives from Dumpster Divers

People who dumpster dive may do so for various reasons and have different outlooks on the practice. For some people, it is simply a means of survival if they do not have access to food or other necessary goods. For others, dumpster diving can be informed by a belief in recycling and reusing consumer goods to reduce environmental impacts.

Many people may donate items or food they find to people in need. Some people dumpster even dive to turn a profit, selling items they find. In addition, some people just enjoy it as a hobby.

Benefits and Downsides

Dumpster diving can be positive in many cases. Reducing waste and reusing items is certainly positive for the environment. It can also lead to a redistribution of goods and food to people who need them. If done legally and with permission, issues with business owners or the legal system are avoidable as well.

However, there are also a few potential downsides. From a diver’s perspective, it can be downright dangerous. Broken glass, needles, and other dangers can lurk in dumpsters. They can cause cuts, punctures, and other injuries that may be prone to infection or disease. There can even be biohazardous material present. Plus, some businesses may go out of their way to destroy food by adding bleach, glass, or chemicals to it before disposal. If ingested, this can be deadly. Expired food can be an issue sometimes too. Additionally, if divers are not courteous or law-abiding, they can cause trouble for business owners and communities.
