Eco-Friendly Dumpster Rental and Exclusive Recycling Services
Nova Dumpsters takes an eco-friendly approach to our business. When we haul our dumpsters to the landfill, we take it to the transfer station. Here the employees will go through the load looking for items, such as metal and cardboard that can be recycled. The goal is to maximize recycling and minimize landfill waste. We also are able to provide dumpsters that can be dedicated to recyclable waste like bricks, concrete, wood, carpet, metal, pallettes or carboard.
Another benefit to the environment is that a dumpster cuts down on CO2 emissions. Instead of making multiple trips in your vehicle if you do it yourself, we can haul everything in one trip.
We also make sure that what we take to the landfill isn’t harmful to the environment or to individuals. Paints, chemicals, and gasoline have to be disposed of properly through city and county drop off points. Our staff can help direct our customers to where to properly dispose these items safely.

How high can I load the dumpster?
When we come to pick up the dumpster, we need to have it properly loaded. Please make sure you do not pass the load level line as this can make transport challenging. Please try to load the dumpster evenly if possible.
If you require additional space, please contact us and we can discuss a solution to help you finish your job. If a dumpster is overloaded, you will be responsible for unloading the dumpster to a safe level.
How do I know what size dumpster to order?
The ideal dumpster size will depend on what your project needs are.

A fee is also charged if we arrive to pick up a dumpster and it is not accessible or if you cancel your booking in less than 24 hours.
Will it cause damage to my property?
Our experienced drivers will follow all guidelines to properly drop off and pick-up the dumpster for your job. While the vast majority of driveways will not be damaged by a dumpster, there are some conditions (cracked or broken driveways, dirt/stone/rock driveways, grass) where some damage may occur due to the weight of a dumpster. To minimize the chance of damage, avoid overloading the dumpster.
We use a unique system that allows us to lower dumpsters onto your property and not simply drop it off. This helps to lessen the potential for damage.
Nova Dumpsters is not financially liable for the damages caused by normal dumpster operation.
Do I have to be there when the dumpster is dropped off or picked up?
No, we can do this without you being there if the location for delivery is easily accessible and identifiable. If this is your first time renting a dumpster we encourage you to be there when we deliver the dumpster.
How long can I have the dumpster?
Rental fees include specific rental days. If you require a dumpster for a longer period of time, please call our experienced staff to discuss all of the options available.
