When renting a dumpster we regularly receive questions about ordering, renting, paying and returning the dumpster. Below you will find a list of the most frequently asked questions. Also read our blogs with tips on renting a dumpster to make sure you don't have any hassle around your purchase.


How does ordering work?

Step 1:
Choose your desired waste type and container size. Click on the icon as shown on the right, to see which waste types are or are not allowed in the waste container of your choice. Then click on the "Order" icon behind the desired container.

Step 2:
Check that all the details of your order in your shopping cart are correct. Do you have a discount code? Then you can also fill it in on this page. The discount will be automatically processed in the price. Keep an eye on our homepage and social media channels for discount codes. Then click on "Continue with ordering".

Step 3:
Enter your details and delivery address. Not sure yet how long you want to rent the container? Then it's good to know that you can use the container up to 8 weeks free of rent. Fill in a date that is 7 to 8 weeks after the placement date. At a later time you can change this date by letting us know via the chat. You can also email us about this at or contact us by phone at 085-048 61 00. Is everything filled in correctly, click on "Proceed to payment".

Step 4:
Choose the desired payment method and complete the payment. Once the payment is completed, you will receive a confirmation and invoice via email. The chosen payment method can then no longer be changed.
If you have any questions during the ordering process, please ask them via the chat. We are also available via email and telephone number 085-048 61 00.

What will be done with my waste?

After collecting your waste, the various waste streams are transported to the recycling locations. Afvalcontainer Holland is an initiative of Spelt Companies. Waste is collected from four different locations, namely:

  • Spelt Afvalinzameling b.v. Nieuwveen
  • Van der Kooij Afvalinzameling b.v. Schiedam
  • Van Dijk Afvalinzameling b.v. Cuijk and Heerenveen

Arriving at the recycling sites, the separation of the waste begins, from large fractions to smaller and smaller fractions. This is done in particular with the innovative technologies such as the waste sorting plant. After sorting the waste, the recycling process begins. Where the waste is a source of new raw materials. Here are some examples:

  • Debris is processed into certified mixed granulate, a commonly used raw material for asphalt paving.
  • Green waste is converted to compost (soil improver) and biomass (alternative fuel).
  • Paper, plastic, wood and iron are transported to an approved final processor. There, new products are made from these raw materials.
