When
conducting a renovation project or clean out, many homeowners rent a
dumpster in order to accommodate the large amounts of waste.
Unfortunately, many of them are under the false impression that they
can simply put anything they want in these dumpsters and it will be
collected.
While
dumpsters are an appropriate solution for most of your garbage, there
are certain items which are prohibited. In this article, the junk
removal experts at 866 We Junk It will clear up any misconceptions
about what can and can’t go in your rental dumpster.

What CAN’T Go In Your
Rental Dumpster

For the
most part, anything that is harmful to the environment can’t go in
your rental dumpster. These include toxic chemicals and other
hazardous materials. You will need to find another way to dispose of
these items safely. Prohibited items which fall under this category
include:
  • Electronics
  • Batteries
  • Paints
    and solvents
  • Asbestos
  • Chemicals
  • Medical
    waste

What CAN Go In Your

Just
about anything not listed above is safe to go in your rental
dumpster. This includes:
  • Soil,
    dirt, and sand
  • Branches,
    shrubs, and other landscape waste
  • Concrete
  • Wood,
    tiles, dry wall, and other clean materials from construction
    projects
