What Can I Put into a Bin or Dumpster Rental?


Planning a renovation project? A bin or dumpster rental is the best way to keep your worksite in Toronto or Etobicoke clean, safe and efficient for your crew. But not all construction materials can be disposed of in a rental bin. Keep reading to learn more about what can be put in the bin and what can’t.

Types of Materials You Can Put in the Dumpster Many common construction materials can be safely disposed of in one of our dumpster rentals. These materials include things like:

  • Appliances

  • Asphalt

  • Brick rubble

  • Carpet

  • Concrete

  • Drywall

  • Electronics

  • Furniture

  • Glass

  • Insulation

  • Plaster

  • Studs

  • Wood

If you’re renovating your home, take care not to mix your construction waste with your regular household garbage. Materials placed in the rental bins have to be sorted, and construction waste that has been mixed in with common trash will require more time to sort, which could add to your costs. Furthermore, certain heavy materials, like brick, concrete, asphalt and wood can be sorted into separate bins and charged at a special flat rate. If you need to dispose of these types of materials, let us know in advance so you can find out how much you might be able to save.

What You Can’t Put in the Dumpster

Certain items need to be disposed of carefully due to their volatile nature or because of the negative effect they can have on the environment. These materials include things like:

  • Combustible materials

  • Flammable liquids

  • Fluorescent lightbulbs

  • Hazardous items

  • Lighting ballasts

  • Organic material

  • Paint

  • Paint thinner

  • Propane tanks

  • Solvents

Homeowners who have hazardous materials to dispose of can arrange for safe pick-up and disposal through the city of Toronto. For the disposal of commercial hazardous waste, contact the Ontario Waste Management Association for a depot near you. Placing unauthorized items in a rental bin not only puts the health and safety of our workers at risk, but it can also have a devastating effect on the natural environment and may result in a fine. That’s why it’s so important to dispose of your construction waste properly.
