Tips for Dumpster Rental in Connecticut

What happens to the debris I throw in the dumpster?

The State of Connecticut has implemented an integrated Solid Waste Management Plan that all private haulers must abide by. This program reinforces source reduction, recycling, composting, and energy source recovery.   The use of landfills and incinerators are a last resort, and sometimes the only option, depending on your debris. The plan offers alternative methods to disposing of regular household junk, solid waste, construction debris, metal, petroleum products, roofing debris, etc... You can find more information on the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection website or you call (860) 424-3366 with any questions.

The state has published a helpful guide called the Connecticut Guide to Disposal of Household Items showing disposal options for dozens of types of debris.  Construction and demolition debris, roofing shingles, clean loads of concrete, yard waste, and other debris may be recyclable.  Loads of mixed junk and debris typically end up in the landfill.  If you're concerned about how the debris in your dumpster will be disposed of, ask your dumpster service.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is the State of Mind in Connecticut

It pays to recycle

Recycling isn’t a choice in Connecticut; it’s required by law. Connecticut is a leader when it comes to recycling and the benefits are plentiful:

When renting a dumpster for any type of bulk waste removal, be sure to ask about recycling options for debris. It may save you money, for instance, if you separate recyclables from non-recyclables.

Despite the fact recycling is mandatory in Connecticut, the recycling rates are still only around 30%, so there’s still a lot of work to do!

What does my city accept for recycling?

The types of materials accepted for recycling by each municipality in Connecticut can vary slightly. To see what your town accepts, visit this page at the CRRA website.

How’s construction and demolition (C&D) debris disposed of in CT?

The State categorizes C&D debris as a distinct type of bulky waste that has value when recycled. Thus, it promotes proper recycling of C&D whenever possible.

The types of C&D materials that should be recycled include asphalt shingles, gypsum board, concrete, wood and more.

You can contact your local recycling coordinator to find the nearest C&D recycling facility.

“Special wastes” require special rules

Disposing of items, such as tires or asbestos, requires that you obtain a Special Waste Disposal Authorization. This permit costs $660, or $300 for asbestos debris only.

***This fee is waived for homeowners if the waste originated from their house.

Call (860) 424-3366 for more information and to obtain a Special Waste Disposal Authorization.
