How to Know When You Need a Permit for a Dumpster Rental

If you are unsure about whether or not you need a permit for your dumpster rental, don’t stress. Some cities require a permit for dumpster rentals on public property. Dumpster permits are usually only required if you are placing the container on the following:

  • Sidewalk
  • Street
  • Other Public Property

A permit will be approved and issued by the city’s public works or building department. If you are also a part of a Homeowners Association then you may also need permission from the association before placing your dumpster on a residential street.
