Common wastes not allowed in dumpsters

Dumpster rental companies abide by local, state and federal regulations regarding the types of waste it dumps at local landfills and recycling facilities. It’s an environmental issue that is rooted in maintaining public health and keeping the environment clean.

Here are some -- not all -- of the items commonly not allowed in roll-off containers:

  • Flammable liquids of any kind
  • Automobile fluids – motor oil, transmission fluid, coolant, etc.
  • Car batteries
  • Automobile tires (some companies allow if the tire is shredded first)
  • Asbestos debris
  • Appliances that contain Freon or other toxic chemicals – refrigerators, air conditioners, thermostats, etc.
  • Household hazardous wastes, or HHW – cleaners, aerosols, paint, oils/stains, etc.

Be sure to ask your dumpster rental provider about its policies regarding prohibited wastes. You can learn more here.
