When you need to reserve a dumpster, you probably have a great mix of different types. Many ways are used in the disposal and can efficiently and responsibly dispose of the vast majority of your waste on your behalf. The most important of which are hazardous materials. Unfortunately, you cannot accept the disposal of hazardous materials in any of our containers for all our personnel’s safety and well-being. Read on to understand which hazardous materials cannot be disposed of in one go:
Hazardous waste comes in many forms, but regardless of type, it can cause significant harm to human and animal health and the health of the environment in general. Both households and commercial real estate generate hazardous waste disposal, although, of course, commercial companies tend to create this type of waste on a larger scale; however, regardless of whether you are a resident or business owner, you need to be aware of the hazardous waste they generate.
What common materials are considered hazardous?
The most significant hazard in hazardous materials is asbestos, a highly hazardous material that causes various diseases, including cancer. Therefore, we can never, under any circumstances, accept any material that contains or may contain asbestos for our personnel’s safety. If you have asbestos that you need to remove, you will need to contact a specialized asbestos removal contractor who can do it safely and responsibly.
Paints, oils, or liquids
Paints, oils, and other liquids such as bleach and detergents can contain hazardous chemicals. If you have hazardous paints, oils, or fluids that you need to dispose of, you should contact your local mayor’s office to determine the nearest authorized recycling center.
Some batteries need to be disposed of; they should not be thrown into a container as they contain many hazardous chemicals and metals. Dispose of batteries separately, for example, at local collection points for everyday batteries or even your local old car battery garage.
Tires or other auto parts
For car parts and car batteries, other car parts such as tires must not be thrown away in a container. Tires are challenging to remove and can be dangerous; however, local tire collectors and specialist companies can recycle tires, for example, into valuable items such as rubber flooring on a playground.
Gas or aerosol cans and other explosives
For obvious reasons, we cannot accept the disposal of any explosive material in our containers, including gas or aerosol cans, whether full, half full, or even empty. These gas canisters often leave hazardous and hazardous residues inside that endanger the safety of our employees. Try to contact your local supplier to find out where you can dispose of unnecessary gas or aerosol cans, or contact your local gas supplier who can collect the cans from your hands and reuse them.
