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 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.

Similar to permits in residential areas, the city of Denver controls the prices of the permits. The price of the permit will be shown on the bill from Affordable Roll-Offs or other companies.
