terms-conditions-of-service-agreementBy renting a container (dumpster) from VIP, Client (you and your representatives) agree to the following terms and conditions of service.

Client agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless VIP against all claims, damages, suits, penalties, fines and liabilities for injury or death to persons or loss or damage to property arising out of Client’s use, operation or possession of the container. As in the case of renting an vehicle, once the container is in the customer’s possession, it is the Client’s responsibility.

Client accepts full responsibility for contents of container and agrees to additional charges if it contains unacceptable materials. Contents are inspected by the landfill and recycling centers.

1. Prohibited Materials:

No concrete materials, asphalt, stone, rock, tile, gravel, sod or dirt. If any of these items are found while dumping the load, an additional charge of $90 per yard of prohibited debris may be assessed. If you need to dispose of these items, ask about a 4-yard container exclusive for these materials. This allows for clean-fill recycling disposal when not combined with miscellaneous debris.

The following hazardous waste cannot be accepted: paint, chemicals, solvents, oil, fuels, herbicides, pesticides, asbestos, radioactive, highly flammable, explosives, bio-medical, liquid wastes, Freon, toxic or hazardous material, fluorescent light ballasts, batteries, fuel tanks, nuclear or fissile materials.

The following hazardous items can be picked up at additional cost. Notify the office first to discuss proper loading:

• Cans of Paint – $10/item

• Televisions/ Large Tires- $25/item

• PC Monitors/ Microwaves/Propane Tanks/Refrigerator/ Water Heater/ AC Units – $30/item

Should specifically excluded waste (as listed above, but not limited to) be dumped in the container, causing a rejection of material at the dump site, the Client shall be responsible for all costs associated with rejection of the load and agrees to reimburse us for the said costs. In addition, Client agrees to be responsible for all fines imposed by local, state, or federal agencies due to the illegal dumping of said material.

If any of these items are found while dumping the load, an additional charge of $90 per item may be assessed.

2. Weight limits:

Unless stated otherwise on the dumpster size pricing package chosen, the following weigh is included in the pricing of our bins:

• 4 yard containers include 1.0 ton or 2,000 lbs limit (unless cleanfill).

• 10 yard containers include 2.0 ton or 4,000 lbs limit.

• 15 yard containers include 2.5 ton or 5,000 lbs limit.

• 20 yard containers include 3.0 ton or 6,000 lbs limit.

Extra weight over the limit above is $60 per partial ton. Trucks are weighed before and after entering the disposal center.

Note: Loads must never exceed 4 tons or 8,000 lbs in a single container. This is the maximum debris weight we can legally haul. Excess weight shall be removed/placed in additional containers by Client (at the Client’s expense), when available. If load is overweight and we are ticketed, Client is responsible for overweight ticket.

3. Overloading Debris:

Containers must not exceed their volume capacity.

Material extending above the wall height of the container will either be removed or rearranged by Client. If our staff has to rearrange debris to make it fit within the container walls, a $30 fee may be assessed.

Containers shall be loaded evenly and placed on hard level surface to insure safe transportation of contents. 

4. Dry Run Fee:

If a container cannot be picked-up, or dropped-off for the following reasons, a $100 trip fee may be assessed to the client.

6. Damage to Container:

If paint, plaster, concrete or other materials are stuck on the outside or inside of the container a $50 per hour cleaning fee may be assessed.

Client shall not overloaded, move the container, make any alterations, or improvements to the container, and shall use the container solely for the purpose intended.

7. Property Damage:

We will make every effort to protect your property.

However, we are not responsible or liable for damaged property due to our equipment, employees or vehicles. Client renting the bin and receiving the service accepts all responsibility for damages.

Client assumes all liabilities from damage to septic systems, trees, shrubs, fences, lawns, sidewalks, road surfaces, pavement, walls, fixtures, roofs and anything not mentioned. Containers and the trucks are very heavy when loaded.
