Residential projects involving basement cleanouts or renovating rooms often produce a lot of waste and require the use of a dumpster. One of the biggest questions Bin There Dumped That gets asked is if a permit is necessary for using one of our roll-offs. This isn’t easily answered because it depends on where you live in Cherokee County and where you plan to park it. We normally recommend using your residential driveway because permits usually aren’t necessary. We still recommend contacting your local city government for more information before starting any major home project.
To help you better plan for your bin, we have put together some general information regarding permits and alternatives to parking your dumpster in the street.
The Eastern Atlanta area typically demands a permit for putting dumpsters on the street, so speaking with your local government can fill you in on any important guidelines you need to follow.
Customers who place our dumpsters on their privately-owned space, like their driveways, won’t need a permit. This makes our minivan size roll-off the ideal solution to avoid the hassle of paperwork and governmental red tape.
If you are in a situation where your drive isn’t big enough to accommodate the dumpster size you need, consider contacting Atlanta’s Public Works Department directly for more information before scheduling your rental. After you have obtained your permit, our delivery crew will carefully observe all laws and regulations and place your bin safely in the designated spot. Plan on purchasing bright caution tape and traffic cones to increase the visibility of our dumpster to the public. This is often a requirement by the county to ensure that all appropriate safety measures are in place.
Permits can have lengthy processing times, so be proactive and avoid project delays by applying at least a week before you need us.
If you live in a community that has a homeowner’s association, make sure to contact them too. Not verifying if you can place a dumpster on the street, or even your driveway, can potentially cost you additional fees next time you pay your dues.
Remember, your community organization has the authority to decide how to use neighborhood roads, in addition to state and local laws. Don’t take a chance and make a phone call to their office as soon as you know you want to rent a dumpster.
One of the most frustrating situations is not being able to get a permit or permission to put your dumpster on the curb. At Bin There Dump That, we have helpful staff ready to assist you in any way we can. One of the first steps in this situation is to re-evaluate the roll-off size you need and determine if our minivan size model will fit your needs. We also have alternative parking options available, like placing a dumpster in your yard.
We do have an alternative to parking your dumpster on the street, which is to offset it into your yard. Check out our FAQ or contact us for more details to find out if this option works for your situation.
One of the most important, and costly, reasons to place your rented dumpster in your driveway is unlawful dumping. This is a situation where an unauthorized individual puts prohibited items into your bin. State and federal law have very strict guidelines about the materials permitted in one of our roll-offs. When restricted items like paint or car batteries unknowingly wind up in your dumpster, you end up footing the extra disposal fees. Parking your bin in a driveway helps minimize this risk and avoids costly additional charges.
