If Your Taking Bricks Off Of The Front Of A House The Bricks Go Up Half Way On The Front Of The House And You Don't Want To Salvage Them. Am I Correct In Assuming I Can Just Throw Them In A Contruction Dumpster On My Property. MEANING IF ITS A CONSTRUCTION DUMPSTER I CAN THROW ANYTHING I WANT IN IT.

Depends on the trash hauler. In my area, you pay by the weight of the dumpster contents, regardless of what is in it (as long as it's not hazardous material) Bricks would be terribly expensive to dispose of in such a manner. Bricks and similar things that can be safely buried are typically hauled by the contractor's dump truck or dump trailer to a site marked "clean fill wanted". Such sites are fairly prevalent in my area.

I was thinking same thing in my area in Northeast illinois you don't pay the premium on dumpster like you do in some areas. I didn't know thats what that ment meaning clean fill wanted. On my way to work i take a back road there is a sign saying clean fill wanted I always wondered what the owner of that property meant. :Thumbs:Exterior of my house is currently in process of being redone. Vinyl siding all new replacement windows. I figure I can save some money by taking bricks off of house myself. Going to do it tomorrow. Brother in law has air compressor called the rent center air hammer 25 for the day. :Thumbs:

Around here we have lots of different dumpsters to choose from. If you are just going to fill it with concrete you can get a cheaper rate by using a company that is going to recycle the concrete. If it is just generic waste then you want a different company. We also have different sized dumpster companies with different sized roll offs or even 'tubs'. The weight issue isn't an issue as far as charging goes out here, but more of an issue of what they can get back onto the truck. Usually rocks, bricks, concrete or such you can only fill up to a certain line due to anything more and the dumpster gets so heavy they can't get it back on the truck. So you might have to get a 20 yard dumpster to get rid of 6 yards of waste.
