Process We Follow for Dumpster Enclosures

Installing a proper dumpster enclosure involves careful planning, quality materials, and expert installation. Here is an overview of our dumpster enclosure installation process:

Site Evaluation and Measurements

The first step our project manager will complete is visiting your Athens property to take precise measurements for your enclosure.

We evaluate the intended location, taking note of any grade changes, electrical lines, drainage issues, and other factors that may impact installation. Precise measurements ensure your enclosure is fabricated and installed to fit correctly.

Dumpster Enclosure Design

With the site measurements, our team creates a CAD drawing detailing the enclosure specifications including dimensions, materials, gate location, and other features. We will work with you to choose durable steel or wood materials in colors and finishes to match your buildings.


Permits are required for dumpster enclosures in Athens-Clarke County to ensure they meet zoning setbacks and code requirements. Our team handles submitting the required drawings and information to the permitting office and securing your enclosure permit before fabrication.

Material Fabrication

Once permits are secured, your custom dumpster enclosure is fabricated to the precise specifications using welded steel framing or quality pressure treated lumber. The framing is fitted with your choice of steel, wood, or vinyl panels in your selected colors.

Site Preparation

Prior to installation, our crews prepare the site by leveling and clearing the area where the enclosure will be located. Any required substrates or footings are created to support the structure.

Enclosure Installation

With the site prepped, our professional installers will deliver your enclosure components and assemble it onsite. The framing panels are joined securely together and anchored in place. Gates, caps, and other accessories are fitted to complete the enclosure.


We handle scheduling the required final inspection of the enclosure by county or city inspectors. Any punch list items are quickly addressed until the enclosure passes inspection.

Cleanup and Finishing Touches

Once fully installed and inspected, our crews complete finishing work such as sealing any seams, adding protective bollards if needed, and cleaning up the site. Your secure and attractive dumpster enclosure will be ready for use.

Throughout the process our project manager will keep you updated on the schedule and progress. We take care handling every aspect of your dumpster enclosure installation. Contact Fence Company Athens GA for expert dumpster enclosure services near Athens, GA!

FAQs About Dumpster Enclosures in Athens, Georgia

What size enclosure will I need for my dumpster?

For front load dumpsters, allow 2′ clearance on width, 1′ on depth. For example a 6×4 dumpster needs an 8’x6′ enclosure. Rolloff dumpsters need 4′ clearance all around.

What materials are best for durability?

Welded steel frames with steel panel infill last for decades with little maintenance. Pressure treated lumber also resists decay. Vinyl panels are middle of the road.

Should my enclosure have a gate or can my waste haulers access it without?

Gates are highly recommended to contain trash and control access. Self-latching spring or gravity latch gates provide access while keeping the enclosure secured.

How do I know if permits or inspections are required?

Most cities require permits and final inspections. Our team handles permitting to ensure your enclosure meets local codes.

What site prep is required prior to installation?

The area must be cleared of debris and leveled. Proper drainage should be established if needed. We handle all necessary site prepping.

Can you match my building color and materials?

Absolutely. We use color-matched steel, vinyl, or wood panels to blend enclosures with existing buildings.

How long does a typical dumpster enclosure installation take?

With permitting time, most installs take 2-3 weeks total. The onsite construction is usually 1-2 days.

Should I add bollards to protect the enclosure?

Bollards are recommended when heavy truck traffic is present to prevent accidental damage. We can install steel bollards.

Do you provide ongoing enclosure maintenance?

We offer maintenance and repair services if the enclosure is ever damaged. Most enclosures we install need little to no maintenance.

What is your warranty on labor and materials?

We provide a 1-year installation warranty and material warranties up to 20 years depending on product.
