A roll off dumpster is a large waste container that can be delivered to your home or place of work to assist with the disposal of items that are more than your typical weekly collection. It is typically used for construction debris, household waste, office cleanouts, or other types of waste materials. Rumpke offers these types of dumpsters in 15-40 cubic yards.

Do I need a permit for my Columbus, IN, Dumpster Rental?

The permit requirements for renting a roll off dumpster depends on your location. In some areas, a permit may be required if you plan to place the dumpster on public property. 

Our team can help you confirm if you need a permit or advise if you need permission from your homeowner association (HOA) based on your address. We can also help you plan where to safely place the dumpster if blocking shared driveways or utilities is a factor.
