How to rent a dumpster in Chicago

At A City Suburban Service Inc. we strive to make our services as easy as possible, and in our years in the business we have come up with a simple and worry free dumpster rental process. Our roll off dumpsters are a popular choice amongst Chicago homeowners for residential remodelling projects. For the simplicity of the rental process and efficient, fast services, our commercial dumpsters are often chosen by business owners who want to get rid of various types of waste produced by construction or office remodelling projects.

If you are considering ordering our services but aren’t sure where to begin, the information below will help you better understand how to rent a dumpster for your project in Chicago.

Determine which dumpster is right for your project

The first thing that you need to do before renting a dumpster in Chicago, is making a list of the things that you will be throwing in it. You may think that planning your trash is not very important or glamorous, but it can make your dumpster rental experience even more simple and completely worry-free.

Knowing exactly what you will be throwing in the dumpster can help you save money as there are restrictions as to what may be thrown in different types of dumpsters, and failing to comply with those rules result in fines that we’re sure you want to avoid. Also, planning will help you decide on the size of the dumpster, as you will be able to more or less accurately determine how much space your waste is going to take up and what tonnage dumpster is right for your project. See our dumpster sizes page for more information.

How to rent a dumpster using our easy online form

Once you know which dumpster is right for you, renting a dumpster on our website is easy.

The dumpster rental begins once you select the dumpster for your project in our dumpster rental page. Once you do that, you will be taken to our dumpster order form where you will see the breakdown of our dumpster rental prices and fill the details of your order. When you have done that and proceeded to checkout, our team will process your order and confirm your roll off dumpster delivery promptly. Of course, you can arrange your dumpster rental via the phone too by calling us at 773-295-0303.

Please note that the dumpster rental price you see on our website when selecting your dumpster is without any hidden fees. We believe in being completely honest with our customers and that is one of the key elements to the foundation of our company.

Dumpster delivery and pickup

We respect your time and therefore always do our best in working with and around your schedule, and that includes delivering and picking up your dumpster on the agreed upon time.

While waiting for your dumpster to arrive, you might consider protecting the area where your dumpster is to be stationed. Our staff is usually very careful when placing the dumpsters, but applying plywood or any other wooden base for the dumpster will ensure that it’s well supported, protect your property and help our drivers better understand where the dumpster is to be placed when there are no specific directions.

Once your roll off dumpster is placed, you can start loading your waste in it. All of our containers are residential friendly and are easy to load. Most of the time, our dumpsters are rented for 5 days, but if you need some extra time, that’s not a problem. However, each additional week will cost $75 per week and you can arrange the extending of the dumpster rental by talking to our representatives via the phone at 773-295-0303.

When you are done with filling the dumpster, our driver will come to pick up your rental dumpster at the scheduled time. You don’t even have to worry about not being on the site when it happens if you have paid your bill upfront. However, if the dumpster is overloaded (which is more than level-full), or heavier than its weight limit, our drivers might not be able to pick them up and that will result in additional fees, which, again, we know you want to avoid.

Once the dumpster is picked up, it is then taken to a landfill and your trash is disposed of. Easy, isn’t it?
