Does someone need to be at the placement location?

What type of payments are accepted?

Our company accepts Cash and all major Credit Cards.

When will payments be processed?

What happens if I include unacceptable materials?

SOCO Waste will pass on all hazardous waste fees and depending on the items we will return prohibited items to the property location. If you have any questions on materials, please check out our acceptable materials page or call us at: (719) 357-8855

How can I avoid extra costs?

The load must not exceed the top of the dumpster as we must be able to cover the load. EVENLY distribute the weight as much as possible. If the dumpster is overloaded and unsafe to empty, it will have to be made safe by the customer and you will be billed for an extra trip. If SOCO Waste has to unload and reload in order to transport, the man hours will be billed at $50.00 per man hour.

Make sure the dumpster is accessible. A return trip charge will be added to your invoice if the dumpster is not accessible when scheduled for pick up.

How do you measure a cubic yard?

If you were to measure your material in a box, a cubic yard would be 3’ wide x 3’ long and 3’ in height.

How much does a cubic yard weigh?

The weight of a cubic yard depends on the type of materials you have. Are your materials wet? For example, if you were to take 100lbs of mulch that’s dry and add water, the mulch would absorb the water and possibly weigh a few pounds more.

How do I buy materials by the cubic yard?

If you have not worked with materials in big quantities, it’s really easy to get started. Call SOCO Waste and Recycling for a list of our preferred dealers, and we can help you get discount rates on specific items when we deliver your products! (719) 357-8855
