Can I place a dumpster in the street in Douglas County?


What is allowed?

Renting a dumpster for medium to large home clean-outs and other projects is an excellent idea. We are very flexible about where we set our dumpsters, however, we still must comply with city, county and state laws. If the driveway is large enough we can almost always place a dumpster on private driveways, and parking areas. Some cities or counties will allow dumpsters to be placed on a curb or in city streets either with or without a permit, however, there are some that do not allow dumpsters to be placed anywhere besides private property.

What is not allowed?  

Douglas County does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. Douglas County will allow a temporary rental dumpster to be placed in the street as long as the person who is renting the dumpster applies and receives a permit or written consent. The county wants to be sure they do everything they can to help its citizens by helping to keep everyone safe. Also, as a suggestion, it is always a good idea to look at the HOA for the neighborhood you live in to see if they have restrictions for items in the street and/or the driveway.

Any public utility or communications services provider (CSP) seeking to access, condemn or utilize an easement or right of use or access over or through or within the paved or unpaved portion of the public right-of-way which is under the supervision and control of the county, in order to run wires, pipes, cables, maintain dams, flow backwater, establish facilities, or for any other uses necessary to its purpose, shall first notify the county transportation department or its designated agent of the utility's or CSP's intention to so access, condemn or utilize, and all cases other than condemnation said utility or CSP must obtain a permit from the transportation department. Utilization shall mean any manner of use of the above-described right-of-way, including but not limited to, cutting of the pavement or boring under the pavement or cutting or boring of the ground outside of the paved area. Such notification must include the location and description of the right-of-way to be accessed, condemned or utilized and the purpose of the access, condemnation or utilization. In the event of emergency repair service involving utilization of the paved portion of the right-of-way during hours other than normal office hours, the utility or CSP shall notify the transportation department on the next business day.
