To avoid city fines & violations, it is important to know what Permits are required by your local government before renting a dumpster. Each city has its own set of rules and regulations that must be followed.

The time it takes to process a permit will vary by the municipality. There are some that have the ability to provide a permit instantly after submitting an application while others may take up to a week. Based on your location, it’s very important that you plan ahead for your project to ensure you have the permit by the time you need the dumpster delivered.

Don’t worry! We have you covered! We will apply for the permit on your behalf so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of getting it yourself. Permit pricing will depend on the cost to retrieve a permit in your city.

Chicago Residents

Chicago Residents must get a permit if the dumpster is being placed on the street or in an alley. If the dumpster is being placed on private property, i.e, a driveway or backyard, a permit is not needed. Chicago offers 2 options for permits: 3 day or 30 day permit.

  • Cost for the 3 Day Permit is $100.
  • Cost for the 30 Day Permit is $125.

Depending on your location, the city of Chicago can typically provide a permit instantly after the application is submitted.

Always reach out to your local municipality to ensure you aren’t violating any local ordinances.
