Northern Nevada Dumpster Rentals

Container Policies & Restrictions:

*** Before ordering a container, we recommend walking the area where you want to place the container and check for overhead hazards like powerlines and tree branches. Roll-off trucks require up to 20 feet of aerial space and the full length of the container and truck/trailer for loading and unloading. ***


  • Prices are for 7 day rentals, or per dump.
  • Boxes may be rented past 7 days for an additional $45 per week.
  • Do not use heavy equipment of any type to pack down waste.
  • Please distribute weight evenly in boxes.
  • Do not move container unless approved by Empire Waste Systems office manager.
  • Any damage done to the container will be repaired and charged to the customer.
  • Any wait time or rearranging of load time incurred by the driver will be charged to the customer.
  • For driveways with pavers, delicate/fancy/ornamental concrete, we require owners to provide ¾“ plywood cut in quarters to be placed under the dumpster to protect their driveway.
  • Maximum 8 ton weight limit on all boxes, regardless of size.
  • DO NOT load higher than level with top of box. All boxes MUST be tarped by Empire. 
  • NO FOOD WASTE OR HAZARDOUS MATERIALS (paint, oil, tires, appliances, propane tanks, fuels, asbestos, etc.).
  •  NO PARKING in front of containers.
  • Customer MUST notify Empire of swaps, deliveries, and pick ups. Empire assumes customer is keeping the box if Empire is not notified.
  • Call office for special prices/procedures for manure.
  • If using a loader to load dumpsters - you will likely pick up extra dirt, thus increasing the dumster weight exponentially with each bucket- BE AWARE !!
  • A $150 charge to re-spot or relocate a box will be incurred.
  • If CONCRETE / ROCK / DIRT is located in 20, 30, or 40 yd dumpsters and are also overweight the following situation will occur:
    • Refusal of load/failed attempt to pick up charge of $150
    • Additional charges of additional dumpsters needed to remedy the situation - minimum of $350 depending on location and size(s) needed
    • Time of Owner / Contractor to transfer materials from overloaded box to empty box
  • Prices and policies are subject to change.

  Violations / Fines  

  • Violation of policies/restrictions will be billed accordingly at $200 per ton.
  • Additional service/travel fees may be imposed at $150 per trip (ex. Show up to pick up box and its too full-hence a 2 nd trip).
  • OVER WEIGHT BOXES are taken very seriously. Nevada Highway Patrol fines are per pound over the vehicle's GVW and can be in the thousands of dollars! If for any reason Empire's drivers incur a ticket that cost WILL BE passed along to the customer.
  • Empire Waste Systems has the right to refuse a load, require the Owner to make corrections at the Owner's cost, and/or dump the load back on the Owner's premise.
  • Repeat Violations of policies/restrictions are subject to cancellation of service and/or additional charges. Any new customers ordering a 40-yard box are required to place a $400 overweight security deposit which is refundable at the time of pick-up after box has been scaled out at the landfill and determined to be less than the maximum 8 tons weight limit.

    ***If Empire encounters a dumpster with compacted waste, Price and weight restrictions will be reevaluated on an individual basis.
