What Materials Are Not Safe to Place in My Dumpster?

Our customers have questions--and we're happy to answer them! It's one of the ways we set ourselves apart from a traditional dumpster rental service. One question we receive regularly is "is there anything I can't throw in the dumpster?" And the answer? "Yes. We cannot accept any hazardous, regulated, or dangerous materials."

Local, state, and federal regulations all stipulate that certain hazardous materials cannot be placed in the dumpster. These items include asbestos, biological or pharmaceutical waste, Freon and Freon appliances, batteries, pesticides, and liquid waste such as paint, thinner, solvents, gasoline, and oil.

Additionally, we cannot accept dangerous materials that are flammable or combustible. These are items which can cause injury to landfill workers or other customers disposing of their debris at the site. The heavy dozers running over debris can cause items to explode. For safety purposes, we cannot accept items such as ammunition, propane tanks, aerosol cans, and explosives.

If you are unsure if an item can go in the dumpster just give us a call at (732) 313-2838. We will be happy to answer your questions!
