If you have your license Home Depot rents trucks for $20 for the first 75 minutes

We were denied access to both the Sission Street Dump and Northwest Transfer Station when doing this. Apparently it qualifies as a commercial vehicle and wasn't allowed for having writing on the side at Sission and wasn't allowed at Northwest for us not having a small haulers permit. We had to hire someone to take it.

When I moved I used our rented uhaul to take mattresses to the Sisson st dump - no issues except they made us park the uhaul at the lower dumpsters and carry the mattress up the ramp and throw it over the edge

I'm glad it worked for you! It was such an obnoxious experience. We ended up writing to our councilperson

Maybe that made a difference! This was only a couple months ago.

Same thing happened to me. I had a uhaul and they wouldn’t let me dump anything so I had to go down to a pay dump in the county. Really messed up my day of moving.

Damn that’s crazy! What about cockeysville?

really glad you told me this cuz I was looking into dumping it at Sisson St

They'll take the mattress for sure, just based on my experience it can't be in a vehicle that looks commercial (has words on the side)

Haha yup. Learned that the hard way when I borrowed my work van to bring my old couch there and they denied me.

I wonder if they've changed policies or if the degree of strictness varies with how busy they are and/or who's working that day. I've gone on days where they've looked over my load somewhat carefully and written down my ID info to make sure that I wasn't exceeding the daily/weekly cap, but then I've gone other times, including twice this week where they've just waved me through. There was a Uhaul van there this week, and every time I go, it's kind of obvious that the majority of the pickup trucks are doing something commercial, even if they don't have any writing emblazoned on the side.
