When renting a dumpster (also known as a container) from Cochran’s Container Service, the container in a size suited for your job will be dropped off at your specified location and dropped in a suitable place. The dumpster delivery system includes a  “hook” delivery system which allows the container to be placed in strategic locations. Service locations include Saranac Lake and all surrounding areas in New York (Lake Placid, Wilmington, Keene, Keene Valley, Tupper Lake, Newcomb, Bloomingdale, Vermontville, Paul Smith’s, Saint Regis, Lake Clear, etc).

Dumpster Rental Period: Flexible. Typically, 3-5 days (depending on service demand). The container will be left at your location for the dumpster rental period, during which time the container will be filled by the customer with acceptable waste materials.

Customer Loads the Dumpster/Container: Customers should load evenly to distribute the weight being careful not to overfill the container above the top or sides. If the container/dumpster is loaded above the top or sides and/or is loaded unevenly, it may not be able to be transported and the customer may incur additional fees.
