A dumpster rental is often the saving grace for any home improvement, garage, attic or basement clean-out project you may have. With so much “stuff” to throw away, a dumpster provides the perfect way to efficiently dispose of left over construction & demolition or bulk waste. Even though dumpsters are easy to schedule, use and order for pickup, a common question that’s often raised during the rental process is, “what can I put in a dumpster?” To answer the question, we’ve broken down and separated the types of waste that may come from your project so you know what to throw out.

Types of Dumpster Rental Projects

Residential Clean Ups

The home will undoubtedly undergo many physical changes over time. From something as simple as clearing out a garage to comprehensive home renovations, a residential dumpster rental is the best debris removal option available. Once a roll-off container is dropped off at your home, the job can officially begin. Residential dumpsters generally accept any bulky wastes from the home with few exceptions. To quickly run through what not to put in the dumpster, it should be noted that no residential dumpster can take hazardous waste, dangerous objects such as syringes and needles, motor oil or filters. Otherwise, your dumpster may include but is not necessarily limited to any of the following:

  • Scrap Wood, Including Pressure Treated Lumber from Decks
  • Scrap Metal
  • Roofing
  • Wallboard or Drywall
  • Carpet and Padding
  • Concrete, Brick and Masonry
  • Sidings & Gutters
  • Furniture
  • Mattresses
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Home appliances

Commercial Business Recycling

Commercial businesses also have the same dumpster rental options but with a few slight variations. Building contractors, stores, retail businesses and utilities have slightly more recycling and trash disposal opportunities versus their residential counterpart. Commercial dumpster rentals accept the very same bulk wastes but also throw in additional building structure materials into the mix. This opportunity is exceptionally beneficial for stores, companies and office complexes that are undergoing an interior renovation or a remodeling. One of the largest uses of commercial dumpster service for utilities is the collection of non-hazardous impacted soil. For soil management services, a business must fill out a non-hazardous manifest form before retrieval can begin. The dumpster will be delivered and picked up in a timely manner when the job is completed. Commercial dumpsters are available for all business waste disposal needs while maximizing your recycling efforts.

Construction and Demolition

Construction and demolition projects performed by bigger companies typically require a larger container size to accommodate the significant amounts of bulky materials generated during the job. Dumpsters of this nature are suited to hold almost any type of demolition debris and mixed construction materials. Again, no contaminated or hazardous materials may be inserted into construction and demolition dumpster rentals. This type of rental dumpster is also cleared for recycled aggregate materials from roads or parking lots. To sum up what these construction dumpsters can take, any bulky (NJDEP Type 13), construction & demolition waste (NJDEP Type 13C) and dry industrial waste (NJDEP Type 27) materials are accepted.
