Contact your local municipality and they will provide you with the regulations and costs to purchase any necessary permits. Affordable Roll-Offs is not responsible for obtaining proper permits.

Yes, each dumpster is equipped with an 8’ swinging door for easy loading. The dumpster door may be opened partially if you prefer. To fully swing the dumpster door open requires approximately 8’ft. of clearance in addition to the dumpster space requirement. Please make sure to allow the appropriate clearance for the dumpster. Also, please keep in mind that dumpsters are not permitted to block sidewalks or streets.

Roll-off dumpster permits are required in some cities in and around the Denver Metro Area. Every city has its own policies when it comes to dumpsters that will be placed on a public property. For example, some cities require the hauling company to get the permit while other cities require customers to apply for the permit. Therefore, it is important to check dumpster permit requirements BEFORE renting a dumpster. Affordable Roll-Offs is happy to help customers living in residential areas of Denver get permits.
