Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order a dumpster?
It’s easy, just click on the tab “Order A Dumpster” and choose the size of dumpster that best fits your needs, pick a convenient delivery time and then provide the payment information. Your dumpster can be delivered as soon as the next day! You may also call us directly at 702-550-0190 if you would like assistance in choosing the correct size or if you need immediate delivery.
What items are PROHIBITED from being placed in dumpsters?
All toxic/hazardous waste such as paint, oil, batteries, chemicals, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, propane tanks, asbestos, or chemicals. We also do not accept food waste, appliances with freon, gas or electric motors. Please contact a Western Elite representative if you have any questions or if you unsure about any specific items.
Do you provide recycling services?
Yes! Western Elite hauls all of the waste and recyclable materials collected from job sites to our permitted Material Recovery Facility (MRF). Once unloaded, the materials are sorted and recyclables are pulled out of the waste stream and sold back to the commodities market.
How long is your rental period?
The rental period is 15 days. If you need it for more than 15 days additional charges may apply. Please contact us 702-843-5541 for further information.
Is there a weight limit for your dumpsters?
Yes! The weight of the waste materials placed in the dumpster may not exceed 8 tons or 16,000 lbs. You must order a Lowboy container if you will be filling it with heavy materials such as concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt and/or sod and the material must not exceed the fill line. These heavy materials should not be placed in a 15-yard, 30-yard or 40-yard container. Heavy and/or overloaded dumpsters pose serious safety concerns. You may put lighter debris on top of the heavy materials up to the top rail as long as the net weight of your waste does not exceed 8 tons. If the total weight exceeds 8 tons, overweight charges will apply.
Can I fill my dumpster to the top?
Waste debris may be loaded to the top rail of the container (water level). Debris may NOT be loaded above the top or sides of the container. Overloaded and/or overflowing dumpsters pose serious safety concern. Safety is our main concern when loading and hauling your dumpster. You must order a Lowboy container if you will be filling it with heavy materials such as concrete, dirt, brick, rock, sand, asphalt and/or sod and the material must not exceed the top rail of the dumpster. These heavy materials should not be placed in a 15-yard, 30-yard or 40-yard container. You may put lighter debris on top of the heavy materials up to the top rail as long as the net weight of your waste does not exceed 8 tons. If the total weight exceeds 8 tons, overweight charges will apply.
Do I need to be at the location when the dumpster is delivered?
It is best if you are present when the container is delivered so we can put it in the correct place and answer any questions you may have. However, if you will not be home at time of delivery, please just describe where you want your dumpster placed in the “Delivery Instructions” section of the website and we will make sure it is dropped in the proper location.
What form of payment do you accept?
We accept VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, & AMEX. Commercial customers may apply for credit. Cash is accepted at time of delivery but you will need to call our office at 702-843-5541 to place your order.
Can I move my dumpster?
No. We will do our best to place your dumpster in a convenient spot per your request. Once we have placed the dumpster you cannot move it. Moving the dumpster requires special equipment and attempting to move the container yourself poses s safety concern. In addition, if it is moved we may not be able to reach the dumpster with our truck for safe pickup. If you need Western Elite to relocate the dumpster for you we will be happy to do so, however, there will be an additional charge as stated in the contract terms.
Sizes and Prices?
Click on the tab “Order a Dumpster” and determine the size that best fits your needs. Size dimensions are given in the following order (length x width x height). Prices are listed just below the dimensions for that dumpster. Beyond the listed prices, there are extra fees if a dumpster is overloaded, delivered outside the Las Vegas area, needed for longer than 15 days, or if we attempt delivery/pickup and the site is inaccessible. For complete details please read the dumpster rental agreement on our checkout page.
Where can you place my dumpster when it is delivered?
We can place the dumpster wherever you need it as long as the placement does not violate any city, county, or HOA ordinances. Just fill out the “Delivery Instructions” when placing your order. If you choose to have container placed on your driveway or personal property, please see the contract terms regarding the risks.
When will you pick up my dumpster?
We will pick-up your dumpster anytime within the 15 day rental period at your request. When the job’s done, please give us a call to schedule a convenient pick-up date. Once you call for a pick-up, we will be there within 4 hours of your call. If we don’t hear from you, we will call you a few days before the rental period ends to schedule pick-up.
