Additional Sizing Tips

Any loads that are thrown into the dumpster must actually fit completely inside of the dumpster. When the unit is picked up, the driver must be able to cover the load. Therefore, if the load rises over the top of the dumpster or overhangs, you may be subject to extra charges. If you feel like it's going to be a tight fit, it's best to err on the side of caution and order the next dumpster size up.

No matter how great or small your needs actually are, there's a dumpster to help you get the job done right. Feel free to reach out to On The Go today in order to further discuss your project specifications and to order a unit to be delivered to your project location.
