City Council Changes Policy for Multii-Unit Pick-ups & DumpstersApril 19th, 2013 by Sarah Spencer and Joe Burgess
A dumpster pad is a concrete or other substantial substance used to pave the access area in front of a dumpster bin in order to support the weight of the vehicle used to empty the bins. This prevents excess wear and tear on the property that results from repeated dumping. Without a dumpster pad, the weight of the vehicle lifting the bins can cause the ground under the vehicle to sink and become rutted, increasing the likelihood of the vehicle becoming stuck. The construction of a pad in front of the dumpster would give the vehicle a solid surface to sustain the weight of lifting the bin, and prevent the vehicles from repeatedly becoming stuck while emptying bins.
Another change made will require multi-unit housing facilities (4 0r more units) and some commercial properties to use dumpsters, instead of multiple mini-dumpsters, due to time and difficulty of access. These will be based on the specific situation of each site.
