7. How can I pay for my dumpster?
You may pay for your dumpster online or over the phone with a major credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express).

8. What does the dumpster rental price include?
The price of a container is based on the number of rental days and the type of container you select. Dumpster rental cost includes a one-time delivery and pick-up, along with the agreed-upon disposal allowance. Tonnage allowances vary for different container sizes, and excess tonnage will result in extra disposal fees (per ton). In addition, if you need to extend your rental period, additional daily charges will apply.
