So you’ve decided to rent a dumpster for a home or yard renovation project. This is great! This is the first step on the path to a new and improved property that will bring you much joy and satisfaction. But the question is: where am I allowed to put that dumpster rental? Can I put a dumpster rental on the street, or does the dumpster need to be on the property? Here is all you need to know:
Can I Place a Clean Er Up Bin on the Street?
The short answer is no, you can’t put a Clean Er Up Bin on the street, unless you have a permit from the city that specifically allows you to. This is in accordance with Hamilton, Ontario laws and ordinances. We recommend that you place the bin in either the driveway of the property, or even on the grass.
Either place is fine for the bin, and the bin will not cause damage to either (As long as you don’t overfill it), thanks to the advanced way that we pick up and drop off bins; there will be no unsightly gouges in your asphalt or lawn, and the bin can be easily transported to and from the location without any trouble. Our drivers are specially trained to make sure that the trucks do not damage your yard or drive, and the bins themselves are on rollers which make them easy to load and unload without causing harm.
To place a Clean Er Up Bin on the street, you would need to get a permit from the city of Hamilton.
How Do I Go About Getting a Permit?
To get a permit from the City of Hamilton, Ontario for placing a dumpster, you will need to contact the Corridor Management Office, which can be accessed through their website here. You will need to fill out the Temporary Lane & Sidewalk Occupancy Permit form, with a minimum of five days’ notice.
Rates for the permit range are $53.60 per lane per day, and the fee can be paid by cheques, Visa, or Mastercard, payable to the City of Hamilton.
If I Get a Permit, What Regulations Do I Need to Follow?
The dumpster cannot be placed within 3 meters of a fire hydrant, 6 meters of a crosswalk, and No Stopping Zones must be adhered to. If the sidewalk is closed it must be clearly marked. The permit may not be used for any personal vehicles. And the site must be left in the same condition it was in when the permit was issued.
What Are My Other Options?
The best option is to place your Clean Er Up Bin in the driveway or lawn of the property. To get a better idea of how the bins are delivered and picked up (and the care with which they are deposited and removed) you can visit our website here to watch a video.
Not only is this a cheaper option with less red tape, but it also makes for whatever renovation project you’re planning to be easier, as there is less time expended walking to the street. Having the bins close to your home, though they might make parking difficult for a few days, will be well worth it when you’re tearing out demolition projects, stripping a roof, or digging up your yard. You’ll be glad you had your bin so close to your home, and it will make a significant difference in the function of your project.
However, if you do need to place a dumpster on the street, it’s good to know the laws and procedures required in getting one there.
