Can I place a dumpster in the street in Jonesboro?

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?  

The City of Jonesboro does not have restrictions limiting residents to only be allowed to place a dumpster in their driveway. City of Jonesboro 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 city 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.

It shall be unlawful for any person to place or construct any fence or building or other obstruction upon or over, or otherwise obstruct, all or any part of any street, avenue, alley, lane or sidewalk, or other public ground of the city, or to dig any hole in any street, sidewalk or other public highway or grounds of the city, without the written consent of the city council.
