Downers Grove dumpster rental requirements
While we do everything possible to take the hassle out of renting a dumpster, there are requirements Downers Grove residents must follow. Two of the most important items to consider are where you put your dumpster and what you put in it. For example, you aren’t allowed to put it anywhere that will impede the flow of traffic. You also aren’t allowed to put anything in it that can’t be dumped in a landfill, such as hazardous materials.
Another thing to consider is that you can’t put too much material in your dumpster. Nothing can jut out over the top of the unit, as this can become airborne during transit and pose a risk to others on the road. Furthermore, there are weight requirements for each dumpster, as they all have a maximum weight limit. When you follow the rules, things go much smoother and you don’t run the risk of fines.
Does Downers Grove require a right-of-way permit for a roll-off dumpster?
You want your dumpster positioned as close as possible to the jobsite, but in some cases this is not possible. For example, if your property does not have a driveway, you’ll need to have the dumpster delivered to you on the street by the curb. Before this occurs, you’ll need to get permission from the Downers Grove public works department. Failing to do so could result in having your dumpster removed, receiving a fine, or both.
The most successful home improvement projects begin with plenty of planning. Prior to your project, estimate how much time it will take, exactly what materials will be disposed of, where you can have a dumpster placed for the safest and easiest access, and if it can be placed on private property. Downers Grove requires permits for many types of projects, such as roofing, siding and other home improvement projects, including demolition, so be sure to check with public works before embarking on a project and give yourself plenty of time to pull the necessary permits.
Ordinances change frequently, so what might have been perfectly acceptable without a permit last year might require a permit this year. Some of these right-of-way and permitting issues can be avoided by having the dumpster placed on your private property. This could require renting a smaller dumpster than what you would put on the street – one that will fit on your property.
At A City Suburban Dumpsters, we’ll help you with all of your unique needs, including assisting you in figuring out what is more cost effective – paying for a permit for a larger dumpster placed on the street or having a smaller dumpster placed on your site and replaced as many times as required.
Very professional and helpful
I recently rented a dumpster from A City Suburban in Brookfield, while doing a remodel. The cost was less than other quotes I received. Seeing the positive reviews here helped my decision in choosing them.
The driver of truck #6 was very professional and helpful. He showed me how to open the door and offered a suggestion to make it easier to get in and out by using a piece of plywood as a ramp.
Will definitely use them again for other rehabs I have in the works.

Renting a roll-off dumpster in Downers Grove: Frequently Asked Questions
As you plan your project, you’re probably doing a lot of research to make sure you do everything correctly and complete your project on time. If this is your first time renting a dumpster, you’ve probably got a lot of questions. Fortunately, we’ve received so many that we probably know what those questions are. The following are some of the most frequently asked:
Q: When a dumpster is picked up?
A: A City Suburban Dumpsters only picks up a dumpster when we are notified to do so. Give us a 24-hour notice, either by phone or email, and we’ll be there to pick up your unit. In some situations, we are able to make same-day pickups.
Q: What to do if a location has changed?
A: Plans change and we’re here to help, so when you need your dumpster placed in a location different from what you outlined in the application, call or email us about your changes. Just have your order number ready so we can quickly assist you. Furthermore, we require these changes to be made at least 24 hours before the delivery date.
Q: How to keep people out of your rented dumpster?
A: It’s not uncommon for others to try to take advantage of your dumpster and throw things in it. Our dumpsters are equipped to be locked with a padlock, which will prevent unauthorized access. If possible, we also recommend erecting a temporary fence around the unit as an added layer of protection. Finally, placing a “no trespassing” sign on the dumpster can deter individuals from approaching.
Q: What materials can our dumpster rentals take?
A: Our stock answer to this is: “Anything that can legally go into the landfill can go into our dumpsters.” Most junk and debris can go in a dumpster, as long as it doesn’t pose an environmental risk. This includes clothing, toys, mattresses, fire-damaged items, sinks, screens, trash, shingles, siding, flooring, demolition debris and a host of other non-hazardous items.
To prevent harming the environment, you can’t place toxic materials into your dumpster. This includes adhesives, asbestos, household cleaning fluids, ink or resin, medical infectious waste, batteries, various electronic equipment (dangerous heavy metals), motor oil, automotive fluids, freon, propane tanks, paint, solvents, whole tires and undrained appliances.
