Every HOA is different, which means there will be different rules depending on where you live. However, when it comes to junk hauling Orlando and renting a dumpster, many HOAs have similar rules. This ensures that the neighborhood doesn’t look messy, even while you’re completing a major cleanup or renovation project.
If you’re curious about some of the common HOA rules surrounding dumpster rentals, here are some of them:
You want your dumpster to be in a convenient spot, but most HOAs require a certain distance between the dumpster and the street. You cannot expect to be allowed to keep your dumpster on the curb or even in the street. If you do, you’ll likely receive a citation, and your neighbors will be unhappy.
In some neighborhoods, a dumpster rental must be kept out of sight of the street. Keeping it up in your driveway may not be enough depending on your HOA’s rules. If this is the case, you’ll want to make sure your dumpster cannot be seen from the road, or you’ll be cited.
Because of the ambiguity concerning dumpsters and how near or visible they can be from the road, it’s important that you check with your HOA before scheduling your rental.
In some situations, your HOA may limit the amount of time you can have a dumpster on site. Some HOAs may allow more days than others, so you’ll need to check with your HOA to find out if there is a limit and, if so, what this limit is.
You’ll likely be limited to 7 days, so make sure you schedule your rental period accordingly. You’ll want to have most of the work done so that when your dumpster arrives, you can focus on filling it up before your time limit is up.
If you leave your bins open for days at a time, all sorts of rodents, insects, and animals will happily make their home inside. While most HOAs don’t have specific rules concerning how long your dumpster can be left open, it’s a good idea to ensure it’s closed whenever you are not actively using it.
Similarly, you’ll want to ensure raccoons or other animals can’t easily open your dumpster. In some cases, people may try to get in and dig around inside your dumpster, especially if it’s easily visible from the road, so make sure you close it securely when you are done with it for the day.
When you decide to rent a dumpster, you’re likely doing so because you need something large enough to hold a lot of debris and trash. However, many HOAs may limit the size of the dumpster you can have on your property. Therefore, before you rent a dumpster, it’s essential to look into these limitations so that you don’t get a citation.
Most HOAs will have limits on 40-yard dumpsters, but many may also have a limit on 30-yard dumpsters. Generally, any dumpster less than 30 yards will be permitted by your HOA, but it’s still worthwhile to double-check so that you don’t receive an unpleasant surprise if the HOA comes knocking.
We get it: you need a dumpster rental to clean up during or after a project. Unfortunately, you can’t just leave trash scattered around the dumpster site; it must go into the dumpster. Many HOAs will expect and require a certain level of cleanliness around the dumpster, so the neighborhood doesn’t look dirty.
Even with your dumpster rental, be sure to keep your property clean so that you don’t upset your HOA.
HOAs have varying rules, so look into your HOA’s specific rules before scheduling your dumpster rental. In many cases, you’ll be allowed to rent one, but you’ll likely need to follow certain rules and specifications so as not to upset the HOA and the sanctity of your neighborhood.
