Elmhurst dumpster rental requirements

State and city authorities have restrictions and regulations related to where a dumpster can be placed, the amount of debris it can accommodate, how long it remains on a private property and other aspects. All these regulations have to be followed, as fees and fines may occur if they are broken.

The necessary permits in Elmhurst
There are dumpster placement rules and regulations in the City of Elmhurst. When placing a dumpster on the street or private property, the following procedures must be followed:
- Before the dumpster placement, a permit must be issued. A city inspector will pre-inspect the area (24 hours notice is required before delivery of the dumpster).

Approximately 3 weeks after approval of the final inspection, you will receive a $250.00 reimbursement check from the City of Elmhurst Finance Department.
If the sidewalk, parkway or street is damaged as a result of the dumpster, the property owner will be advised to repair the damaged area(s).
