Let’s work together to make sustainability more than just a buzzword. With Feed Mr. Murph leading the way, we can drive real change, one recycled item at a time.
All containers will be placed on a hard or paved surface to prevent property damage. If a customer requests placement on an unpaved surface, this could result in increased costs if inclement weather prevents removal on the date requested. Costs could include:
(1) a trip fee based on location and no less than $75, and (2) additional lease fees at the current rental rate until ground conditions allow for removal. If the container is placed on an unpaved surface at the customer’s request, the customer assumes all responsibility for any increased costs and any damage to the ground or grass this may cause.
Due to safety concerns, please do not attempt to move a container once placed at your site. If you need a container moved before the final pickup, please call our customer service.
American On-Site is not responsible for accidents, injury, or damage caused by a container or to a container while the container is at the customer’s location.
If a container is overloaded, American On-Site will either charge additional fees to haul the container or require the customer to offload material before removal if the container cannot be safely hauled.
Most material is acceptable for disposal in our temporary containers. Please see the following list for exceptions. If unsure of size or material, please contact our customer service prior to placing items in containers.
Example of Allowed Materials:
Example of Materials With Restrictions:
Materials such as rock, dirt, sand, concrete, tile, and brick are typically not permitted in most of our dumpster sizes due to their substantial weight. These materials can quickly exceed the weight limits for our trucks, as well as local and highway regulations, posing safety risks.
However, we do allow these materials in our 16-yard and 20-yard dumpsters under specific conditions. A 16-yard dumpster can be filled up to 3/4 with these heavy materials, while a 20-yard dumpster can be filled up to 1/2.
Please note that these materials are not allowed at all in our smaller 16-yard, 30-yard, or 40-yard dumpsters unless you have obtained written approval from us. This is to ensure we adhere to all safety standards and regulations.
When it comes to disposing of shingles, we do have specific restrictions based on the size of the dumpster due to weight considerations. Here are the guidelines:
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
When renting a dumpster from American On-Site, it’s important to be aware of the weight limits for each dumpster size. Overloading a dumpster can result in additional fees due to the extra costs associated with hauling and disposing of the excess weight at the local landfill. Here are the weight limits for our dumpsters:
Front Load Dumpsters:
Please note that these weight limits are in place to ensure the safety and efficiency of our waste disposal process. If a container is overloaded, additional fees will apply to haul the dumpster and for the extra weight charges at the local landfill.
In the event that a container is excessively filled, American On-Site will take one of two actions. We may levy additional charges (based on local landfill rates) and for the transportation of the overloaded container. Alternatively, we may necessitate that the customer remove some of the contents to ensure the container can be safely transported.
When disposing of electronics, it’s important to remember that they often contain components that can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly. Therefore, they should be recycled separately. Items like televisions, computers, and other electronics are typically allowed in dumpsters, but they often need to be recycled separately due to the specific materials they contain. Here’s how you can prepare your electronics for proper disposal:
Remember, improper disposal of electronics can lead to harmful materials like lead, mercury, and cadmium leaching into the environment. By recycling your electronics separately, you’re helping to protect the environment and conserve natural resources.
