Are there any items that cannot be placed in a dumpster?

Yes, certain materials are not allowed to be placed in dumpsters for safety and environmental reasons. These materials include hazardous substances like chemicals, gasoline, oils, solvents, car batteries, asbestos, propane tanks, paint, or any type of toxic or biological waste. Proper disposal methods should be followed for these items.

What is the maximum height to which I can load the dumpster?

We recommend loading materials only up to the top rail of the bin. Overloading can result in additional charges, as stipulated in our rental agreement. If the load exceeds a safe level, we will need to unload the bin to ensure safety.
