Can You Place a Dumpster on the Road?
One of the most common questions that we get is: “Can You Place a Dumpster on the Road?” Many people do not want a roll off dumpster sitting in their driveways, because they are used to seeing the big commercial and industrial rust buckets that sit in businesses and industrial parks. This poses a few problems.
Most city and county ordinances prohibit the placement of a dumpster on the road. Sometimes there are instances where you can receive a permit from the city or county to have it temporarily placed there. However, most times you have to be a general contractor in order to pull the permit and the time frame is extremely limited in how long you can have the dumpster sitting on the street.
The main issue is the fact that it is extremely dangerous. Even with the compliant reflective taping all around the container, it is still extremely dangerous to passing cars. In today’s distracting society of texting, emailing, and mobile phones in general, if a car has an accident and hits a roll off dumpster on the road, it can easily be fatal.
