What Waste Materials do not belong in a Roll-Off Dumpster?
There are some materials that you are not allowed to place in a roll-off dumpster, generally established by local regulations.
It is essential to be aware of the restrictions to ensure the safety of others and of the environment.
A few guidelines regarding prohibit materials:
You should avoid dumping materials such as computers, DVDs, printers, hard drives, cell phones, etc., in the dumpster.
In some states, it is against the law to dispose of electronics in a landfill. The disposal company could face hefty fines if it unwittingly dumps these materials with other debris. These fines can get passed down to you.
However, local retailers can legally dispose of your electronics. A few municipalities also gather electronic equipment from the curb periodically.
There are also online services that offer you compensation for old computers and phones, as they can salvage their parts.
Call us for help with specific regulations in your area.
It is illegal to dump tires in a landfill in the state of Pennsylvania, thus you must be cautious not to dump tires in the roll-off dumpster.
The rationale behind this seemingly arbitrary restriction lies in the fact that tires collect rainwater and can become a breeding space for mosquitoes.
You can check with your local authorities in regard to the specific rules in your area. You can also find the instructions on how you can dispose of tires legally in your locale. Some municipalities will even dispose of your tires without charging you for it.
You should refrain from dumping both LED and fluorescent light bulbs.
One of the chief elements in light bulbs that makes them energy-efficient is mercury. Mercury is a hazardous substance, so you cannot casually throw it away with your regular garbage. Its toxins can seep into the ground water of the landfill and make their way to our drinking supply.
You can call your local recycling and waste collection offices to get instructions on how you can to safely dispose of them.
You may not dispose of batteries with regular garbage. Batteries consist of cadmium, lead, and mercury. These substances can contaminate the environment by seeping into the ground over time.
This regulation includes rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries, lithium batteries, and car batteries. You can dispose of these items at hazardous waste facilities, specific retail locations, and auto parts stores, where they often recycle materials or offer safe disposal options.
It is common knowledge that you should not discard chemicals in the dumpster or the landfills.
A few chemical waste products that can be particularly dangerous include oil, solvents, transmission fluid, paint, gasoline, lead-based cleaners, and pesticides.
You can discard these materials at specified drop-off locations through the municipal collection.
There are also some online services that will accept them through prepaid postage labels.
