What size dumpster can I fit in my New Jersey driveway?
All dumpsters have the same width, 7.5ft. – 8ft. They vary in length and height depending on the size.
However, since the dumpster slides off the back of the truck, we require the length of the dumpster (11′ to 21′), plus the length of the truck (35′). That distance can include the street.
We do have mini trucks that are 16 feet long for dropping 10 yard dumpsters. It is also important to know that while the dumpster is approximately 8′ wide, the truck is between 9-10′ wide.
New Home Construction And Obstacles For Placing Dumpsters In New Jersey Driveways
Over-head wires, canopies, and low roof overhangs are also considerations when determining what size dumpster your driveway can accommodate. While the actual dumpster is only 6 feet tall on the ground, a 30 yard dumpster is about 25-30 feet tall when it is being dropped off. Both 20 yard and 10 yard dumpsters are 23-27 feet high when being serviced.
Under some conditions, we can place the dumpster on the driveway and then slide it under the obstacle in question. It matters if there is enough length. Also, considering that the dumpster will be much heavier after it is filled and therefore harder to move.
If all else fails, a permit can be obtained to put a dumpster on most streets in front of a New Jersey driveway.
