Dumpster Rental Indianapolis – Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Benefits of Using The Hook-Lift (rolloff style) Dumpster System?

We are one of the few companies that use the hook-lift dumpster system to place containers at your location. This dumpster rental system has several important attributes:

  • Unlike the rolloff system used by others, the hook-lift allows us to drop off dumpsters in tighter areas.
  • Some of the dumpster delivery trucks we use to carry our containers are smaller than those used with the track-cable system, allowing us to place containers in tighter spots and on less-sturdy surfaces.
  • With our hook-lift dumpster system we are able to softly place containers on the ground instead of literally dropping them as rolloff trucks do. What this means is that we treat your concrete, asphalt and lawn gentler than they do.
  • Unlike our competition, we offer small 10, 15, 20, and 25 yard dumpster rentals that are perfect for those small jobs in tight spaces.
  • We also offer 30 yard and 40 yard dumpsters for your larger projects.

Can I Fill The Dumpster To The Top?

All materials must be inside the hook-lift dumpster, nothing over the top of container. By law, we are required to tarp each dumpster for transport. We cannot pick up a container that is over-full. You will be responsible for removing excess and a return trip fee will be charged to return and pick-up the dumpster.

The standard dumpster rental period is up to  7 days. Rental periods can be extended for an additional fee.

Will The Container Be Picked-Up Automatically?

Yes.  We will automatically return in 7 days to pick up the container unless you instruct otherwise.

Will The Dumpster Damage My Property?

We respect your property and make every effort to ensure no damage is caused. Protective barriers are placed between your property and our hook-lift dumpsters to ensure no damage is done.

Can I Move The Container?

No. We will do our best to place your container in a convenient and safe space, you may not move container. Moving container causes damage to underside. If damage occurs, you are responsible for the cost to correct.

icon_trashIs Your Disposal Operation Environmentally Friendly?

Yes! We do our best to protect the environment with our safe and eco-friendly practices, including appropriate disposition of waste materials based on their nature and re-use potential.

How Much Is A Cubic Yard?

A cubic yard is 3’x3’x3′ and weighs nearly 1 ton for sand or dirt, but much less for most construction and trash materials. Most personal pick-up trucks carry 2 cubic yards of material. Greenway Dumpsters can help you estimate the size of the hook-lift dumpster or container you will need.

How Much Does Trash Weigh?

Below is a chart showing the approximate weight of various kinds of typical waste contents.


As the renter of the dumpster, you are responsible for the contents of the container and any damage that occurs to our container while on your site.
