If the contractor orders a dumpster, there is nothing in the contract regarding the dumpster, is the homeowner required to pay if the contractor defaults on the bill.
Yes , you are having work done on your home and items are being changed and disposed of.
Just ask your Contractor to Itemize the cost of this Dumpster if it should be required again on his next invoice, or ask him for a copy of the Dumpster Cost. I'm sure you would not like disposed items piled up in your back yard.
This is a situation where they may be able to put a lien on your property as they provided services to renovate your home.
That being said, the lien process is not without it's costs for the supplier.
Perhaps you could negotiate a reduced rate with the disposal company, pay the bill and chalk one up to experience.
Who ever orders a service has to pay. Usually dumpsters and bin guys request your credit info and such so as to take a deposit from you. Failing that then it becomes a grey area since the contractor was reoresented as your agent it might fall to you to pay dues owed. I would look at your contract and talk to the dumpster to see who's info they have.
The cost is passed onto the customer, however like previously mentioned when order the bin company would asked for a credit card from the contractor, if the renovators tells you the cost will be X you would assume the bin would be covered unless they specifically told you it would be separate
It's all depend on what the contract says? Most of the time, we do the demolition and the disposals, then we have to pay for the bin in case we have to order one and that's mean the contractor will pay for it however if that's not mentioned in the contract then this area will be a grey area and has to sorted it out
