Frequently Asked Questions

Following are frequently asked questions we receive. If you have additional questions that aren’t answered here, please contact us at (904) 452-5505 and we would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Who can rent a dumpster?

We rent dumpsters to everyone! Most of our clients are DIY homeowners, businesses, real estate agents, charity organizations and small to mid-sized contractors; however, we have been known to work with major contractors on large industrial construction sites as well.

Can I put the dumpster on the street?

Each municipality has different regulations and permit requirements concerning dumpsters placed on private property, streets or any other public right of way. Contact your local municipality and they will provide you with the regulations and costs to purchase any necessary permits. Green Monkey Dumpsters is not responsible for obtaining proper permits.

How high can I hold my dumpster?

When the dumpster is picked up the driver will put a tarp over the load for containment during transport. We ask that you don’t load any material above the top rails of the dumpster that will interfere with the tarp. Try to keep the load flat and distribute the weight as evenly as possible. If for any reason the dumpster is improperly loaded and cannot be transported safely, you will have to unload the dumpster to a safe level before we can remove it. Additional charges may be assessed.

What can NOT be placed in dumpster?

Tires, Batteries, Paint, Rock, Dirt, Concrete, again – NO TIRES!!

What kind of debris do you dispose of?

We specialize in working with most types of home improvement, demolition and clean-out projects, but there are some items we simply don’t have the resources to dispose of per EPA guidelines. Those items include:Biohazards materials/medical waste, Paint (although dry paint cans are permissible) Batteries, Propane, Tanks, Liquids/Solvents/Freon/Chemicals, Equipment containing gas or oil. If you need to dispose of any of these materials, let us know and we’ll direct you to the proper agency.

How much trash will you haul off for me?

When you order your dumpster rental, our friendly customer service representatives will let you know the weight limit on the dumpster you order. This is determined by the size of the dumpster-larger dumpsters will hold more trash, and we’re happy to take care of that trash for you!

How far in advance do I need to order my dumpster?

It’s always a good idea to book your dumpster as far in advance as possible to ensure its availability and our ability to deliver the day you need it. Keep in mind we’re busiest on Mondays and Fridays. While we always appreciate a couple days notice, we realize timely delivery is critical to keeping your project moving on time and budget. While speed of service is based on availability, typically, as long as you place your order by noon we will be able to deliver the dumpster the next business day. In some instances same day delivery is possible.
