Our FAQ’s Answer ‘What Can Go in a Dumpster’ and Give Valuable Suggestions On How to Dispose of Prohibited Items

You can throw nearly anything in a dumpster, but there are few things to consider due to safety hazards and local restrictions. If you’re unsure about a particular item in a roll off dumpster, check handy FAQ’s below or give us a call at 1-888-386-7787. We’re here to help.
Dumpsters can be used for general waste which is typically anything involved with a general cleanup around the house and property that is neither liquid nor of a hazardous nature.
Hazardous waste can not be placed in the dumpster. This includes TV’s, monitors, fridges, paints, solvents, liquids or any asbestos. To dispose of any of these materials you need to contact your local county office. They will be able to provide you with a contact who can dispose of anything hazardous or not accepted in your dumpster (i.e. household garbage and 
food waste). There are also option for recycling those old appliances and electronics.  For information on Michigan’s Electronic Waste Recycling, visit the Electronic Waste Takeback Program by clicking here. 
You cannot put any hazardous waste into the dumpsters. Anything of a hazardous nature should be disposed of carefully with the right procedure. If you are unsure of how to dispose of any hazardous waste you need to contact your local counties hazardous waste department.
