Any good project begins with a solid strategy, and that includes finding out exactly what types of permits will be required by your local municipality. Planning for the right size dumpster is definitely part of the planning process, but will you need a permit to rent a dumpster and have it placed on or near your project site?
The answer will vary depending on where you live. While there is a clear and easy to understand guideline to follow for Chicago residents, it’s not so simple when you get out into surrounding communities that have their own governing bodies and sets of laws.
That’s why it’s important to do your research, because you don’t want a code violation to add delays and costs to your project.
