    You mean those 30 yard construction dumpters?

    If that is what you mean, though there are others, lots of poeple get them from Nacerima in Bayonne. I think they run about $650 but i havent gotten one in a while.

    Two things to be aware of…. you should get at least 2-3 no parking signs to clear the clear the space. Legally you should have them for the whole time you have the dumpster but most people only get them for the drop.

    Be aware.. dumpters over the weekend are not allowed in Hoboken so plan for early week drop off and late week pickup.

    You are supposed to get a permit from enviromental services. I dont think a lot of people do that though as I got on Monday and Wednesday of one week once and the numbers in teh receipt book were only 2 or 3 differnt. But the right move is to get the permit, it is about $50 for 3 days. Most likely no one will care if you dont but if you do something else stupid at the same time to get a ticket then you will get nailed for this so better to spend the $50.

    No matter who delivers your dumpter be aware that it is unlikely you will get it first thing in the morning unless you are building a 40 store high rise. Even when i was getting a dumpster a week I was still getting dumpsters at 2pm even if I called way ahead and asked for an AM drop. So you should request the dumpster the day before you need it if possible.

    thanks much!

    Who do you call to get the environmental services permit? Town Hall?

  3. personalt says:

    yes.. be aware of course you need a permit from big Al for whatever work you are doing.. The first time they may ask for a copy…

    Another choice, if you have maybe 10 yards or less would be to have one of the local trash guys take it. you want a guy that is going to take it to the dump(they will have a dump sticker on their car)..

    they will then most likely take it to allegro. you could do that as a homeowner but you cant go and rent a uhaul trailer, they get really pissed if you do that. There is a home owner exception that allows a home owner to dump trash they generated at the dump without a stick but the trick it is must be in your own vechile. I rented a uhaul once and got chewed out really good and was threaten with a $1000 ticket. They dont want you to do that because lots of people were renting trialers, filling them and dumping in the woods and reporting them stolen.. But 10 yards or more you might as well get a container.

    Does anyone know of a competent roofer in Hoboken? Our roof is leaking right now and we’ve gone through 3 differ roofing companies so far and thousands of dollars, but nobody knows what they are doing.

      Did you ever get your roof fixed and if so who did the work and are you satisfied with it?

    I suggest that you ask a licensed building inspector to give you three references…Try Elizabeth or J.C. if you feel the Hoboken office is too close. 💡

  7. costume says:

    OK. Because my licensed roofing inspector from Weehawken recommended the last few contractors. Apparently trying to fix a roof is like brain surgery.

    Anyone know a good fire alarm company?

    ritco security systems 1-888-467-4826, very good very professional, you see their decals all over hoboken, they did my house, we are very happy with them

  10. xyz123 says:

    couldn’t disagree more about ritco….they are not professional. Very disappointed with their service. They become hostile when you call them out on something.

    We are looking for a contractor to redo the exterior of our building (wood). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we are a very small building and most of us haven’t lived in Hoboken long enough to have had renovations before.

  12. elainetyger says:

    Frank’s Emergency Home Repairs did a fine job with our wooden fence and with a few small jobs we needed such as plumbing repairs and painting, but he does big jobs also, we just haven’t needed that since we found him. Frank will pull the permits and not try to get over on the city to save a few bucks. He charges sales tax, too; it’s all invoiced. (201) 303-4277 is the number.

  13. sunflowerlax says:

    Thanks Elaine. We’re looking to actually rip off the front of our building and redo all the casements around the windows etc, so this seems like a bigger job than he would usually do. Does anyone have a recommendation for a contractor who is good with woodwork?

  14. jerseyboken says:

    I know this has been asked before, does anyone know a roofer? Thanks in advance.
