Dumpster Enclosures Near San Mateo, CA

When it comes to managing waste and recycling for your business or property, having a proper dumpster enclosure is essential.

A dumpster enclosure provides several important benefits like shielding dumpsters from view, securing waste containers from weather elements, protecting contents from getting blown out, and preventing animals from getting into your trash.

Our team has over 10 years of experience designing, building and installing custom dumpster enclosures for all types of properties.

We work with commercial businesses, apartment complexes, schools, restaurants and more to create durable and functional dumpster enclosures to meet their specific needs.

With Fencing San Mateo, you can count on a smooth process from start to finish. We handle the entire project including meeting on-site to discuss your goals, taking measurements, securing permit approvals if needed, constructing your enclosure out of long-lasting materials, and completing installation efficiently with minimal disruption to your property.

Our goal is to provide an enclosure that blends into your existing space while still being highly functional for your waste and recycling needs.

We use only the highest quality lumber, concrete, and galvanized steel to build secure and sturdy dumpster enclosures that can withstand the elements.

We customize options like doors, latches, roofing, screening, ventilation, colors and more based on your specifications. Our experienced crews complete each project professionally with minimal impact on daily operations.

Process We Follow for Dumpster Enclosures

Initial Consultation and Planning

The first step when working on your dumpster enclosure project is to have an initial meeting on your property. We’ll discuss your goals and needs for the enclosure, take measurements of the dumpster area, and identify any permits that may be required from the city.

You can point out challenges or concerns you want the enclosure to solve and we will provide solutions. We’ll also discuss options for materials, colors, designs, doors, screening, roofing and more.

Custom Design Process

With the information from the consultation, our team then works to create a tailored dumpster enclosure design plan specifically for your property’s space and requirements.

We draft detailed drawings indicating dimensions, layout, materials and all other specifications. For properties requiring city permits, we will complete all necessary permit applications and secure approvals.

Material Acquisition and Preparation

Next we gather the highest quality lumber, concrete, steel, and all other materials needed for your dumpster enclosure based on the approved design plan.

Our team carefully prepares the materials, including treating the lumber and cutting everything to size according to the specifications. We pre-assemble components as much as possible to maximize efficiency during installation.

Efficient On-Site Installation

When the materials are ready, our professional crew will arrive to your property for the dumpster enclosure installation. We take care to protect your parking area, landscaping or any other facilities onsite.

Our foreman oversees the crew to ensure the enclosure components are assembled and installed correctly and safely according to the approved plans. The process moves efficiently while minimizing disturbances to your operations.

Finishing Touches

As the final step, we complete any finishing touches like adding doors, hinges, latches, lighting, signage or anything else called for in your enclosure design. We’ll do a final walkthrough with you to ensure you’re completely satisfied and answer any questions. We’ll also haul away all construction debris, leaving your property clean.

Ongoing Maintenance (Optional)

If desired, we can provide regular dumpster enclosure maintenance services such as pressure washing, touch up painting, repairing any damage, replacing lights and other upkeep to keep your enclosure looking its best for years. Just ask us for details on adding this to your service plan.

With our streamlined process and construction expertise, we make it simple to have an attractive, durable dumpster enclosure installed on your property with minimal disruption to your regular business. Contact us today to get started!

FAQs About Dumpster Enclosures in San Mateo, CA

What are the benefits of installing a dumpster enclosure?

Dumpster enclosures provide many benefits:

  • Hide unsightly trash bins from view
  • Prevent trash contents from blowing away
  • Secure bins from unauthorized use
  • Keep animals from getting into waste
  • Allow convenient service access for waste haulers
  • Organize centralized waste collection
  • Improve aesthetics and cleanliness of your property

What materials are best for building dumpster enclosures?

The most durable and attractive enclosures use a combination of treated lumber or steel frames along with concrete, stone, brick or wood paneling. Galvanized steel is also used for gates and roofing. We recommend long-lasting, low-maintenance materials.

Should my dumpster enclosure be attached to my building?

It’s recommended to have detached enclosures located at least 5 feet from buildings according to fire codes. We design freestanding units properly anchored to the ground. Attached units are only an option if permitted by local codes.

How much space should I allow for the enclosure?

When planning your enclosure size, be sure to allow 2 feet of clearance on all sides of your dumpster. This provides easy access for waste haulers. The enclosure doors should be 10-12 feet wide to accommodate trucks.

Can I have multiple dumpsters in a single enclosure?

Yes, we can design enclosures to hold any number of dumpsters your property requires. We’ll ensure proper spacing and access. Some enclosures have separate compartments for trash vs recycling.

Should my enclosure have a roof?

Roofing helps protect the bins from rain and sprinklers. We recommend roofing combined with screens to allow ventilation and prevent moisture buildup. Roof styles can be angled, curved or flat depending on your preference.

What type of gate or door should I choose?

We recommend self-closing doors with spring hinges. Roll up doors offer convenience but can be prone to damage. Swing doors take up less space. Double doors facilitate easier access. Locks prevent unauthorized use.

Can I have my enclosure painted or colored?

Yes, we can apply custom paints or stains in any color you like. Natural wood tones or neutral earth tones work well. We’ll color match to existing buildings if needed. Let us know your preferences!

How long does installation take?

After securing materials and permits, our crews can typically install a fully operational enclosure in just 1-3 days depending on complexity. We work efficiently with minimal interruption to your property.

What kind of maintenance is required?

We use long-lasting materials to minimize maintenance needs. Periodically cleaning the enclosure, checking/lubricating hardware, and touching up paint are basic maintenance tasks. We’re happy to provide maintenance contracts.
