Dumpster and Pod Permit

A Dumpster and POD permit is required to place a dumpster or POD upon any Township Street, avenue, lane, alley, public sidewalk or other public right of way or public place in the Township.  Please submit a Dumpster and Pod Application together with the following items.  A dumpster or POD placed on private property or in a driveway shall not require a permit.

  • Permit fee of $75 by check, credit card, or cash.
  • A deposit of $500 guaranteeing that the applicant shall repair any damages caused by placement of the dumpster or POD. The permit will be issued for a maximum of 30 days.
  • A liability insurance certificate in the amount of $100,000 and naming the Township of Shaler as an additional insured party shall be provided by the company supplying the dumpster or PODS® and must accompany the application. However, a liability insurance certificate is not required to be submitted by the applicant if the Township already has on file an insurance certificate submitted by the same company within the past calendar year and the insurance certificate remains current. At time of application, the applicant shall also deposit with the Township the sum of $500 guaranteeing that the applicant shall repair any street or highway damaged by the permitted dumpster or portable storage unit, which sum shall be returned to the applicant but only if, in the opinion of the Code Enforcement Officer, no damage to the street or highway occurs.
