In the event a load is rejected and or a fine is imposed, you the customer will be responsible for any fines. You will also be responsible for fees involved in time and labor for proper removal and disposal of such items.

Warning: The above mentioned items must not  be placed in any container from Domestic Cleanup Service. Penalty fines apply for  such named items if found in the dumpster. For more information on the  proper disposal of such items please call us.

Q: What happens if my property is damaged?

A: Prior to delivery of any container, a predetermined location is established as to where  the container is to be placed on your property at your discretion. Any damage to lawns, driveways or other structures on the property are the sole responsibility of the homeowner or persons responsible for ordering the dumpster, not Domestic Cleanup Service.

Q: How long can I keep a Dumpster on my property?

A:  All Dumpsters are  for 3-5 days only,  for more than 5 days a predetermined time frame will be established for each additional day the container is on your  property after the initial 5 days. We will tailor a time span to your specific needs. We are flexible so if your project runs over a day there is no need to worry.

Q. What Size do I Need?

A. This depends on the project. Most bathroom renovations, small kitchen renovations or basic household debris typically use a ten or fifteen yard dumpster. Please call us so we can assist you in choosing a size that is right for your project.

Q. Can I have it here today?

A. Yes. We know that emergencies arise and we are equipped to assist you.

Q. Do I need to be there when the container is dropped off?

A. Yes.

Q: What if I obstruct the container and it is non-accessible at removal?

A: In the event we  come to remove the container and it is blocked by anything such as a snow bank, a new driveway setting up or anything for that matter, you will be charged a predetermined rental fee per day for each day the container remains on your property after the day you call for removal.  You will also be charged a “go-back fee” each time we go to remove the  container and it is blocked.

Q. Can I leave the dumpster in the street?

A. In most cases the answer is NO. However, in gated communities and in cu-de-sac type properties the home owner association may allow you to place the dumpster in the street for 8 hours. With this type of situation we will deliver the dumpster in the morning and pick it up before the close of business, the same day, and we will provide safety cones.

Q. Can I put the dumpster inside my garage?

A. The Dumpster will fit in a residential two stall garage if the doorway is taller than 9 feet and close to 10 feet wide.

Q. Do I have to call you to pick Up the Dumpster?

A. Your dumpster will be on site for the amount of time that was discussed at the time you ordered it. If you get done early or need a few extra days be sure to call us.

Q. How many dumps do I get?

A. When you rent the dumpster only one dump is included in the price. If you need another dump, contact us and we will bring a new one out to you when we remove the original one.

Q. Can I fill the dumpster over the top?

A. You can only fill the dumpster to the maximum load level sign or the top rail of the dumpster. Over filling the dumpster will cause the debris to slide off when the dumpster is loaded onto the truck. It is also against MI DOT regulations to carry overloaded or overweight dumpsters. We are concerned about safety and will not carry loads that are unsafe.

Q: What happens if it rains and the load gets wet?

A: In the event you rent a container from us and it rains, we are not in any way  responsible for excessive weight due to such situations. We recommend  you plan accordingly in advance. You may at your expense purchase a tarp  to cover the container in the event of such situations but this does not guarantee prevention of water. You must remove tarp prior to  container removal or it will be disposed of at your loss and expense.

Q.  Is Domestic Clean Up Service licensed and insured?

A. Yes!

Q. When Is Payment Due?

A. Payment for the dumpster is required upon delivery. We accept cash, check or money order.
