Roofing contractor not picking up dumpster


Contact your state's Contractor Board or State Corporation Commission. Many states, like Va., have a contractor's "Recovery Fund" that we pay into to cover costs in these situations. Also, in this state, we can file claims in court and with the SCC to pursue issues like this.

Do something before the Dump company figures out a way to lien your house and property. Call your local TV stations and tell them the story as you know it. They nay exert pressure on the Dumpster Co. to swallow the costs, etc, and take it without you incurring any other charges. Also contact the local newspapers.

You can always call a different dumpster company and ask them if they want a free dumpster. All they need to do is dump what's in it for ya!

I had thought of that, and even painting and selling it. Best file some kind of MV lien on it at DMV or somewhere first.

Roofing contractor not picking up dumpster


I recently heard of a similar situation in my piece of the world and the property owner contacted local radio & TV stations (most have "trouble Shooters" as a way to gain popular interest). Tell them you story ... especially about the dumpster company suggesting the garbage is yours and if they took the dumpster bace, it would have to be empty or charge you for the total removal. What happened here was that the dumpster company agreed to help out the owner as a token of good will ... after a little pressure from the media. Just know thet the roofer is gone. Don't expect to see them again. It's, now, you vs dumpster.
Good luck.

Roofing contractor not picking up dumpster


I am probably going to start a massive &%$^ storm but here is a question/statement.

Yes it very unfortunate that the OP as well as other consumers are bit by these crooked contractors.BUT why should the dumpster service have to eat the cost ?

Not only are they out of pocket on the disposal cost.They are also out of the money they could have made by having the dumpster in service rather than docked on someones property.

Maybe these dumpster services should require full payment up front ? Maybe the customers should demand to recieve verifiable complete payment documentation (Paid in full)from the contractor by the service PRIOR to final payment.

I have been thinking about starting a roll off service and this situation is something that scares me.

I agree RM. I was only joking although I thought about it once when my former dumpster company didn't pick up a can for over a week.

Roofing contractor not picking up dumpster


You may be better off just paying the $500 to get the can off your property. On a side note I wonder what kind of quality the "roofer" did on your roof if he can't even pay the dumpster service??? Guessing the "roofer" is paid in full? (Which included the dumpster fee).

This reminds me of back when I rented dumpsters. Had a homeowner call me asking why the 30 yard was still parked in front of his cabin (55sq's). Turns out the dumpster driver got stopped by the DOT on the way there and wouldn't let them drive on the road in front of the house due to road restrictions. 3 weeks later I get a bill from the dumpster company for $125 for storage fee! Decided since the homeowner had more fight in him than me (68 years old) to have him call the dumpster company. He told them if they didn't pick up the can in 24 hours he'd dump it out in the ditch in front of his house!!! The next day it was gone. If I were a betting man I'd bet the homeowner would have done what he said if the can were there the next day. The day after it was gone I sent the dumpster company a bill for $125 for the homeowner not being able to park his $125K Benz, $65K Cadilac truck, and $50K Land Cruiser in his garage. His wife had a rock on her finger so big it looked painful for her to hold her hand up!!!

No worries my friend.I was speaking in general nobody specific.You always hear of these things and it is always the companies (Mostly) that are required to absorb any cost.

Technically the trash/debris/garbage does belong to the OP because the dumpster was empty when it was delivered.

One compny around here gets a deposit for the dumpster and 1st. load before or when it's dropped. Never bothered me. I'd rather do that than have the HO not pay and leave me on the hook.

Agree with all you guys. Personally I am so frustrated with poor service from dumpster companies I am thinking about getting my own roll offs but I doubt it will happen anytime soon.
