Get answers to frequently asked questions from Bargain Bins customers before you rent a roll off or mini-dumpster. Topics include acceptable materials, additional fees, discounts and safety precautions.
What do I do with the stuff you can’t take?bargainbins2020-02-18T09:11:04-07:00
Nothing should be over the top of the container. Materials that exceed the top of the container may require removal for safe transporting before we pick up the dumpster. By law we are required to tarp each load for safe transport. The customer is responsible for removing excess debris and a $50 return trip fee will be charged to cover our cost.
Is There A Weight Limit?Allan Lewis2020-01-27T09:54:00-07:00
As a convenience we accept very limited amounts. Keep in mind, this material often weighs 2,000-lbs. per yard. A 12-yd MAX filled with this material would weight 24,000 lbs. If you plan to throw out more than a yard, you need to order from a company with the big trucks. See bin capacities for estimated volumes allowed.
Can I put Tires, Mattresses or Empty Paint Cans Into The Dumpster?Allan Lewis2020-03-16T15:21:54-06:00
If you place tires in the roll-off dumpster, there will be an additional $25 charge per tire. Mattress and box springs are no additional charge. Paint cans are okay as long as the paint is dried out. If you have liquid paint, it will be accepted for no charge at the El Paso County Hazardous Waste drop off facility. See the El Paso County Recycling Guide.
What Items Are Restricted From Your Dumpsters?Allan Lewis2020-02-17T08:37:43-07:00
If you are unsure if an item or items are acceptable just call us and we will assist you. Any of the above items not previously discussed and discovered at the landfill will incur an additional charge of $85 per item.
How Much Notice Do You Need?Allan Lewis2020-01-27T09:42:53-07:00
Turnaround time depends upon demand and equipment availability. Typically we can do next day, but don’t count on it. Reserving in advance is a good thing. If you cancel your order 48hrs in advance, your payment will be fully refunded. If you decide to cancel less than 48 hour prior to your service day a $75 charge will be made and the balance of the payment returned.
Can You Set The Dumpster In The Street?Allan Lewis2020-02-17T08:38:00-07:00
Most cities and HOA communities do not allow dumpsters to be placed in the street without a permit. Fortunately, we have equipment that allows us to place our bins on property when others can’t. A Temporary Revocable Permit – Surface from the City of Colorado Springs is required, and this can take two to four days for approval with a $50 fee. You may want to check with your HOA requirements as well.
It is the customer’s responsibility to check with local municipalities to determine if a permit is required. It is also the customer’s responsibility to check with their HOA for regulations regarding dumpster rentals. We will do our very best to assist you.
Our price covers delivery, removal and disposal for bins that are within our allowed weight limits, do not have unacceptable waste or items that have additional fees. We do not charge additional fuel surcharges or delivery fees if you are located in our coverage area.
Do You Offer Any Discounts for Veterans & Seniors (65+)?Allan Lewis2020-01-27T09:38:49-07:00
Customers are prohibited from moving our MAX bins. If you would like us to move the dumpster from one location to another you can call in and make arrangements with our staff. A relocation fee of $75 will be collected for this service.
Our 3-Yard Clutter Buster Bins can be moved by the customer with care. Keep in mind, you are fully responsible for any damage the bin may cause or injuries you may incur.
What Do You Mean By “Driveway Friendly?”Allan Lewis2020-01-27T09:53:18-07:00
We have no idea of the pre-existing condition of your driveway and subsurface, so we do not take responsibility for driveway damage. We do, however, take the utmost care while delivering and removing the bin and have upgraded all of our dumpsters with driveway friendly rubber rollers (wheels) made out of recycled truck tires.
Do Dumpsters Have Any Safety Precautions?Allan Lewis2020-01-27T10:00:30-07:00
The customer is responsible for any damage caused to the dumpster while it is under a rental agreement with you. For example, all unauthorized moving of a dumpster causing damage, pouring wet paint or other sticky material into the dumpster, paint overspray or graffiti that defaces or mars the surface and appearance of the dumpster, or using heavy equipment to drop heavy loads into the dumpster causing dents in its interior and exterior sheet metal. Repairs for dumpster damage will be charged to customer.
How Long Can I Keep My Dumpster Rental?Allan Lewis2020-01-27T09:31:51-07:00
Bargain Bins standard rates are for 7 days. If additional days are needed, we strongly recommend requesting additional days at the time you order. This will reserve your rental and ensure the roll off or dumpster is not committed to a future customer after 7 days. Additional fees apply for additional days and there is no guarantee that you will be able to keep the dumpster extra days once your order has been placed. See our fee schedule. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
