Dumpster and Trash No-no’s

Being in the waste and recycling business, we get asked a lot of questions. Some are better than others. One of the most important question we get asked is about acceptable and unacceptable materials for our dumpsters. The following materials are unacceptable to put in dumpsters and likely your weekly trash pick up as well:

Televisions, liquid paint, used motor oil, antifreeze, pesticides, cleaning products, refrigerators or other appliances containing a refrigerant (such as Freon), car tires, automobile batteries, or any other household hazardous waste.

If you have questions about acceptable material, please contact us before or even during the time you have our dumpster at your location. These rules are set at the local, state and federal level and are in place for your safety and the safety of the waste professionals handling the dumpster and its contents.
