Frequently Asked Questions
How long can I keep a dumpster on my property?
All dumpsters are for two weeks. In the event you need the container for more than 2 weeks, a $5 per day charge is implied. Rental fees apply for each additional day the container is on your property after the initial 2 weeks. Call for rental terms and fees.
What happens if my property is damaged?
Prior to delivery of any container, the pre-determined location is established as to where the container is to be placed on your property at your discretion. If you would like us to place the dumpster on boards to prevent damage to asphalt driveway, we will do so. You must provide the boards. Approximately 4 feet long, 8 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. You will need 4 of these. Any damage to barns, walkways, driveways, or other structures on the property are the sole responsibility of the homeowner or persons responsible for ordering the dumpster. NOT RAMBONE DISPOSAL.
What can’t I put in a dumpster?
State and Federal Laws have banned certain items from the waste stream. Such items include, but are not limited to:
- Televisions and computer monitors
- Refrigerators and other Freon units
- Mattresses or Box Spring
- Any hazardous materials
- Automotive (IE Batteries, tires, etc)
- Propane tanks and fuel containers, etc.
- Paints, Stains and containerized liquids
- Asbestos material of any sort
The above mentioned items must not be placed in any container from Rambone Disposal. Penalty fines apply for such named items if found in the dumpster. For more information on the proper disposal of such items, please call us.
What do I do with something I can’t put in a dumpster?
In the event you come across an item that is banned, please just set the item off to the side. Call the office and someone will assist you in the proper disposal of the item. Rambone Disposal can accept most of the above mentioned items but we must handle them separately.
What if I do put a banned item in the dumpster?
State and Federal Laws are enforced strictly at disposal sites. Loads can be rejected and fines can be imposed. In the event a load is rejected, and/or a fine is imposed, you, the customer will be responsible for any fines. You will also be responsible for fees involved in time and labor for proper removal and disposal of such items.
What can I put in a Dumpster?
Temporary containers are rented out for either one of three purposes: home remodeling projects, new construction projects, or house cleanouts. All items in the container must be nonhazardous. In the event it is a home remodeling or new construction project such items are acceptable:
- Floor or Wall Tiling & Other Small Incidental Materials from the Project
- Old Wiring
- Asphalt Roofing Shingles
In the event it is a house cleanout project such items are acceptable but not limited to:
- Plastic Toys
- Boxes of Junk
- Small Metal Items
- Books & Magazines
What happens if it rains and the load gets wet?
In the event you rent a container from us and it rains, we are not in any way responsible for excessive weight due to such situations. We recommend you plan accordingly in advance.
You may at your expense purchase a tarp to cover the container in the event of such situations but this does not guarantee prevention of water. You must remove tarp prior to container removal or it will be disposed of at your loss and expense.
What if I obstruct the container and it is non-accessible at removal?
In the event we come to remove the container and it is blocked by anything such as a snow bank, a new driveway setting up, or anything for that matter, you will be charged a predetermined rental fee per day for each day the container remains on your property after the day you call for removal. You will also be charged a “go-back fee” each time we go to remove the container and it is blocked.
