do you have to get a permit to leave them on the street for a long time.
I hate to pull into a job and see every house under construction have there dam dumpster on the street when they have a hole lot to put them on.
i have been after the city here to charge a fee of $250 or so to have them on the street. in the winter the plow trucks have to deal with them and the snow drift around them so bad
it is one of my pet peve of jobsite a**hole thinking that they own the hole street just because they have a permit to build
on one job i could not get the crane to the house so i paid the crane guy to put the ones in the way as far from the street as pos got the cops called on me all i said to the cop was they had not been moved in the last 24 hours that was proof by the snow drift left behind.
i go before the city council next meeting to see if i can get them to want more money out of us poor builders laughing:

Some place do if its loaded and moved within 48hr, some places don't, because sometimes there is no other alternative... so as long as you put reflective caution signs around it and cover it up over night, they don't have a problem with it.

nun of the towns around here do but they will tow your car or truck after 24 hours if it is not move.and that goes for trailers to
if the truck is dot inspected you can only park on wider streets and only one dot truck per home

The only place I've seen care are places with HOAs, and not all of them. It's never bothered me; of course we don't have issues with snow removal here.

We have a few towns that care, others don't. We have had to meet with the highway department for one township and inspect each dumpster....
Yes, if you have a state HWY running through the town, then its different. Like in my area RT27 runs across every-town, so if you do work along that HWY you have to deal with the state, that is when fun starts with all the paper work and all the s^*t they require.

I hope you brush up on your spelling and grammar before going to the city council. Otherwise you just look like a butt hurt monkey. If your the GC why don't you dictate where the dumpsters go? Or provide one?

Not sure what your issue is unless you own the development, or plow the roads.

Around here you can't park anything on the streets for more then 24hrs. Trailers are not to be left on the roads unless they are hooked up.
