How far ahead do I need to order?
Orders must be made at least one business day before the box is needed. Scheduling a few days out is preferred and appreciated.
How long can I keep the roll-off box?
Up to three days for a 5 cubic yard mini box and seven days for larger boxes. Additional fees may apply when boxes are kept longer.
Are there rules for how to load a roll-off?
Yes. Materials must be evenly distributed and cannot be loaded higher than the top of the box. If the box has lids, they must be able to fully close. Also, boxes cannot be too heavy to legally haul. If disposing of dirt, rock, concrete, or similarly heavy materials, a 7 cubic yard box must be used. An improperly loaded roll-off may need to be unloaded and could incur additional fees.
What materials are not allowed in a roll-off box?
No hazardous materials are allowed. Electronic waste, tires, paint, pesticides, asbestos, creosote, pressure-treated wood, auto parts & fluids, chemicals (photo, pool, or lab for example), batteries, fluorescent lights, pressurized tanks or any material defined as hazardous cannot be placed in a roll-off box.
Where can a roll-off box be placed?
Boxes are typically placed in the street, in a parking lot, in or near a garbage enclosure, or at a loading dock. Delivery/removal requires a significant amount of space for our truck to safely maneuver. Residents requesting driveway placement are required to sign a waiver. The cities of Millbrae and Brisbane both require permits for a box placed on a public street. Boxes that become blocked may incur additional fees.
Can I get a load summary to submit to the city, USGBC, or other agency?
Our invoices provide most of the information you will need: service date, material type & weight collected, confirmation that loads were processed at Blue Line Transfer (which achieves 65% landfill diversion of mixed construction & demolition material loads).
