Residential Sanitation Dumpsters Policy
Residential sanitation dumpsters are available by request only and may be used only under the following regulations:
- Effective April 15, 2010, the City of Minden changed its policy regarding the use of one- and two-yard dumpsters by residential customers. The current policy is that residential customers may request the usage of a one- or two-yard dumpsters and be charged a $20 or $40 fee per dump collection.
- A one-yard dumpster shall have a rental rate of $20 per week, which includes one emptying of the dumpster. The resident will be charged $20 each time an additional emptying of the dumpster is requested in a week.
- A two-yard dumpster shall have a rental rate of $40 per week, which includes one emptying of the dumpster. The resident will be charged $40 each time an additional emptying of the dumpster is requested in a week.
- The weekly rental fee will begin the day the resident receives the dumpster. The resident is responsible for notifying the City of Minden offices to pick up the dumpster by 5:00 pm on the seventh day of having the dumpster, otherwise another weekly rental fee will be assessed to the resident. For example, if a dumpster is delivered to Joe and Jane Public on Friday, April 9, Joe or Jane must notify the offices by 5:00 pm on Thursday, April 15 to avoid another weekly dumpster rental fee. If the seventh day of the dumpster rental falls on a holiday or weekend, then the city offices must be notified by 9:00 am on the next working day.
Note: The resident is responsible for notifying the offices when a dumpster needs emptied. Please allow the City of Minden employees 24 hours to empty the dumpster.
