A dumpster rental can be the perfect waste disposal solution for a number of different projects: construction; renovations and remodels; cleaning out a basement, garage, or yard; a community cleanup or event; and more.
Such projects generate a lot of trash and debris that can’t go out for regular trash pickup. That leaves you stuck with a number of options:
With a dumpster rental, you get a large, open-topped rectangular bin delivered to your site by a truck with a hydraulic bed that lifts and deposits the dumpster. You decide how long you need the dumpster for, and then you fill it on your own schedule. When you’re done, the rental company comes back to your home or worksite, picks up the dumpster, and then hauls it away. It’s safe, it’s convenient, and it’s excellent value for the money.
One of the most important considerations when getting a dumpster rental is making sure you get the right size. If the dumpster’s too large, you’ll be paying for space you don’t need. But if the dumpster’s too small, you have a problem that isn’t so small. By law, you can’t overfill a dumpster, so you’ll either have to dispose of the extra waste yourself, extend your rental period, or get a second dumpster. All of those are going to cost you extra time, hassle, and money.

There’s another very important consideration, and that’s knowing what you can and can’t put into a dumpster. Laws dictate these things, and if you run afoul of them, you can be hit with a violation and assessed a fine, pay extra to have forbidden items removed and disposed of, or remove and dispose of them yourself.
Regulations about what can and can’t be put in a dumpster rental vary by location, and we can’t possibly cover every municipality and county in Florida, let alone the rest of the country, but we can give you a pretty good sense of what holds true in most places regarding what you can put in a rental dumpster, what you can’t, and what you might be able to. Always check with the company you’re hiring for a dumpster rental before you start filling it.
If it doesn’t present a risk to the integrity of the dumpster or to the environment, you can probably put it in a dumpster, and here are some things you can almost certainly place in one:

Perhaps more helpful than knowing what’s okay in a dumpster is knowing what isn’t. Mostly, this means flammable or toxic items and materials. Some examples:
