What Can You Put in Our Dumpster Rental?

We at Fleetwood Waste Systems are very enthusiastic about proper waste disposal. We take our work very seriously, not only ensuring your trash disposal needs are taken care of quickly and efficiently, but that nearly all of it is recycled.

Like any business, there few rules and limitations that guide our refuse collection process. This pertains to the type of refuse that we can dispose of. Like all businesses in our industry, we must adhere to strict laws pertaining to waste organization, transportation, and handling.

Accordingly, we only handle the disposal of mixed waste and a variety of home, commercial, and industrial wastes. We have a list of waste materials that we are not able to accept and should not be put in our bins. If such materials are put in our bins, we will know and often have to charge additional processing fees or report it to higher authorities.

In this article, we will be differentiating between various categories of waste. We hope that it helps you, the customer, understand your waste and whether we accept it.

Refuse That We Can Dispose Of

We accept a wide variety of non-hazardous industrial, landscaping, and building project waste and debris, along with various household wastes. The acceptable classes of waste can be divided into the following categories:

  • Furniture: For example, your wrecked sofas, broken chairs and tables, rotten shelves, as well as any office or household furniture that you want to dispose of.
  • Scrapped home appliances: From your televisions, radios, your toasters, spoilt game consoles, and printers to whatever electronic device you don’t need anymore.
  • Plastic garbage: Plastic spoons, plastic plates, plastic chairs, and tables; you name it.
  • Construction waste: These include your emptied paint buckets, the remainder of your roofing sheets, etc.
  • Renovation debris: We accept most of the materials that are found after the demolition of a building, such as wood, demolished walls, etc.

Acceptable with Conditions

Unlike the completely rejected refuse list, we can accept these waste materials, but you would have to use a separate bin for them, different from the refuse container that you have rented in the first place. This is because of the weight. We can’t use our regular bins for these.

  • Dirt: Sandy soil, loamy soil, clay soil; you name it. We can accept any dirt you bring from your gardens or construction debris; you just need to rent a separate bin for it.
  • Concrete
  • Drywall: We are referring to any type of drywall construction material, be it from your ceiling or from your wall.
  • Gyproc: This is an eco-friendly plaster material, so we can send it to be recycled.

Refuse That We Do Not Accept

There are certain materials that we will not accept even when you put them in a separate bin. The reason being, some of these materials require special measures for their disposal, and others need to find their way into your compost bins (like food wastes and animal droppings), while others, still, are simply dangerous to human life. They include:

  • Corrosive materials
  • Batteries
  • Paint/solvent
  • Treated lumber
  • Roofing materials
  • Animal products
  • Metal stumps
  • Tree stumps
  • Ballast that contains PCB
  • Food waste
  • Flammable liquids

For such materials, we recommend you seek out experts in their proper disposal.

Now That We’ve Cleared up the Differences

It’s important that you plan and organize your materials into separate bins based upon their aggregate type. Otherwise, we would treat your refuse as mixed waste, which costs more to dispose of than your regular refuse.

If you have looked through our list, and you are still unsure if we can dispose of your type of waste, give us a call or send us an email. We are happy to answer any waste disposal questions you have.
