FAQ'S

The DumpsterGard is the waste removal industry’s first cost-effective solution to keeping unwanted risks from entering your dumpster. This innovative, but simple business allows customers to protect the environment, the materials in the dumpster and their bank accounts. Check out our interview with owner Gary Lougher to understand why every container should have a DumpsterGard!

Our Co-Founder was selling dumpster hails in the Nashville, TN area and his customers kept asking him for a better way to cover dumpsters. He shared this with me and we began to tinker around and came up with a general design. Then found a phenomenal supplier and partner, Sparta Plastics. My market research showed there was a lot of potential for an innovative solution so I quit my day job so I could commit to building DumpsterGard. We formed in July of 2011 and were on the market by October, 2012.

Probably because there was not much enforcement of existing regulations. And while it seems there has been some demand for a while, I think people who looked to create a solution just over-thought it and created overly complicated, impractical and expensive products that were either overkill or under-performed.

Mostly it’s durability and performance. The DumpsterGard won’t tear or sag to allow water to get into the dumpster and it will hold up to heavy snow. The DumpsterGard is also easier and quicker to install and won’t freeze in winter. Furthermore, the DumpsterGard is a better investment. While they are more expensive up front than tarps or tarp and bow systems, if they are taken care of it is likely the last cover system you will need to buy.

Primarily by keeping water from getting into the dumpster, becoming contaminated and leaking into the ground. Many state regulators are also concerned with how used tires are stored. If water collects in used tires, mosquitoes find them excellent breeding grounds which can contribute to the spread of West Nile virus. A DumpsterGard can help with that. It also serves as a deterrent to keep people from putting hazardous materials into the dumpster and not being disposed of properly.

The DumpsterGard was designed to fit 20, 30 and 40 yard roll-off dumpsters. These are between 20’-23’ long and the DumpsterGard is adjustable to accommodate the 3′ variances in length. We also designed them to accommodate the bowing that can occur towards the center of the dumpsters. For longer dumpsters (40s and 45 yarders) and some shorter dumpsters (10 and 15 yarders) you can just add or remove panels.

First, by keeping you in compliance and avoiding fines. Second, if you are in a tonnage market you pay increased tipping fees for snow, ice, water and water soaked waste. Third, by serving as a deterrent to keep people from filling up your dumpster. Fourth, they also serve as a deterrent to keep dumpster divers, thieves and kids out of your dumpster which reduces your liability and keeps valuable recyclables from being stolen.

We are definitely seeing an increase in the number of calls coming in that start out like, “I’m being told I need to cover these dumpsters to be in compliance with storm water regulations.” We have also heard from a number of customers who say they are being told of an impending increase on the crackdown of storm water runoff regulations in general.

For the next couple of years, we will focus on growing the business through creating industry partnerships. Our customer feedback tells us we got the product right. It works in the heat and our customers in the Boston area report that they held up to even their heavy snowfall this past winter. However, we do have a couple of ideas we are working on related to ease of installation and storage when they are not in use. Not only does the product work, but the business works as well. We operate from a simple, yet powerful place of “doing what we say we are going to do.” We quote and bill accurately, we respond when we say we will, we ship when we say we will and the product performs as we say it will.

Recommended Installation Instructions

Read these instructions completely before you begin.

1. Read these instructions completely before you begin.

2. Watch the video here.

3. Your order should contain 4 panels per standard kit ordered. Please note on the delivery
receipt if your order arrives off the pallet.

4. The straps are packaged under the bottom panel and on top of the wooden shipping pallet,
unless we notified you they were shipping direct.

5. The top panel should have no arc on either end as displayed in the photo below. This panel
will go on first. Verify that this is the top panel. If not, locate it within the stack and move it
to the top

6. The remaining 3 panels will have no arc on one end (as shown above) and an arc in the
opposite end as pictured below.

7. Stage the panels at one end of the dumpster you are covering with the end that has the 12”
gap between the ridges facing away from the dumpster. (As shown in the beginning of the
video).

8. Proceed to install as demonstrated in the video, making sure that the panel with no arcs in
the ends goes on first. Be sure the panels extend slightly over the ends of the dumpster to
avoid buckling in the ends when ratcheting tight.

9. Adjust by maneuvering the panels that overlaps into the 12” gap on the preceding panel.

10. Instruction for using the ratchet straps are enclosed with the straps. You can also see a
demonstration video here.

11. Install the straps as shown in the video and hook to any available point on the dumpster.
You can also hook underneath the dumpster if there are no other points available. Locks are
not included, but the straps may be locked as shown in the video.

12. If you need partial access to your dumpster, you can simply stack panels on one another to
open as much of the dumpster as necessary. Please be sure the remaining panels are
secured to avoid being blown off.

13. If you need to remove all the panels, remove them in the reverse order they were installed
and stack on each other.
