What Do I Need to Know Before Renting a Dumpster in Jersey City, NJ?

Before renting a dumpster to place on the sidewalk or street in Jersey City, you must obtain a permit from the Division of Traffic and Street Maintenance. The area beneath and surrounding the container must be kept clean at all times, and must be cleaned immediately after the container is removed. The city requires that the dumpster not be filled higher than four inches from the top edge. In order to protect public health and safety, the spilling, dumping, or leaking of liquids and solids from containers is prohibited. Also, all dumpsters rented in Jersey City must display the following:

  • An identification number assigned by the state
  • The name, address, and telephone number of the person responsible for the container
  • At least one reflector at each end
  • At least one iridescent stripe measuring four feet by four inches at each end

If you are planning on placing your dumpster in the public right-of-way, you will need to file a written application with the Division of Engineering, Traffic, and Transportation. The maximum amount of time a dumpster can be kept in such a location is seven days, but permits can be extended up to two times for a maximum consecutive duration of 21 days. Dumpsters placed on the street must be placed at least 25 feet from an intersection or closer than six inches from the curb.
