As far as volume, we ask that you fill the dumpster no more than 12″ above the sides of the dumpster. By law, we are required to “contain” each load with a tarp for hauling to the landfill safely. Cubic Hauling cannot pick up a dumpster that is over-full. You will be responsible for ensuring the dumpster is properly loaded. Cubic Hauling may assess a “dry run” fee to recoup costs incurred for not being able to pick up your dumpster.

Cubic Hauling is extremely careful when delivering a dumpster to a customer site. Every precaution is taken to make sure we are aware of any underground features such as utility or sewer lines. Cubic Hauling cannot be responsible for UNFORSEEN circumstances under the subgrade. The customer needs to make sure they inform Cubic Hauling of any underground assets in the path to the container before it is delivered. Cubic Hauling uses driveway protection, however, we cannot be responsible for damages to paving surfaces such as asphalt, brick pavers, or concrete.
Any required permits or waivers issued by county, local municipality, or state ordinances are the responsibility of the dumpster renter, not Cubic Hauling. For instance, if you want the dumpster delivered in a city street or right of way, you are required to get a Temporary Revocable Permit – Surface from the City of Colorado Springs, and this can take two to four days for approval. Cubic Hauling will glad to assist you in filing the permit application.
Download and print the application for the Temporary Revocable Permit -Surface for Colorado Springs.
The customer is responsible for any damage caused to the dumpster while it is under a rental agreement with you. For example, unauthorized moving of a dumpster causing damage, pouring wet paint or other sticky material into the dumpster, paint overspray that defaces or mars the surface and appearance of the dumpster, or using heavy equipment such as a skidsteer to drop heavy loads into the dumpster causing dents in its interior and exterior sheet metal.
Please treat the dumpster with respect as additional charges could apply for dumpster repair and cleaning.
