Do I need a permit for my dumpster rental?

Always check with your local municipality for requirements regarding dumpster permits. Trash Daddy LLC is not responsible for obtaining dumpster permits nor are we responsible for any fines incurred for failure to comply with city regulations. If your job site is in the city of Philadelphia, you can visit this website http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/commercial/dumpster-laws/ or call the Philadelphia Streets Department Permit Unit at 215-686-5500.

Note: In Philadelphia, customers are required to acquire a permit when the dumpster is located on a city street or sidewalk. Dumpsters must be on plywood and covered with a tarp when not in use.
