    Do You Need a Dumpster Permit in Detroit?

    If you plan to have your rental canister placed on public property, you might need to ask for a Detroit Dumpster Permit. This requirement depends on where you will place your dumpster. If you plan to position the dumpster at your private space like the driveway, then you don’t need a permit. Detroit City regulations, however, demand that you keep the area surrounding the dumpster clean and tidy.

    If you are to place the roll-off on some public area like the street or sidewalk, you have to obtain a permit for right-of-way. You get it from the Detroit Public Works Department at the City Engineering Division. Upon filling the necessary forms, the officers at the department will give you the Detroit Dumpster Permit. Most dumpster service companies handle this task for you, so you can ask your provider if they do it.
