Things That Can You Haul in a Roll-Off Dumpster

A commercial building project has many aspects. It is a multi-team project. Each team has its own rules, but one thing is common: they make a mess. After the construction is complete, someone must clean up.

It is simple to keep your construction site clean by renting a commercial dumpster. A dumpster can be placed on the site for construction projects to make it easier. We specialize in renting the right-sized dumpster for your project. We can also help you with any questions throughout the entire process.

What Can Be Dumped in a Commercial Dumpster?

It doesn’t matter if it’s in the dumpster; that doesn’t mean that you can’t put anything in it. You have to follow certain rules when recycling at home. The same applies for commercial dumpsters. These are some of the items you can place in a dumpster.

Shingles for the roof

Remember that asphalt shingles can look thin when you are renting a dumpster to replace your roof. You can fit many of them into the dumpster before it gets too heavy. To ensure that you get the right-sized container, it is important to consider how serious your shingles are.

Other types of roofing materials

You can dispose of various roofing materials in a commercial dumpster. You can dispose of clay tiles, metal roofing, and slate shingles in the dumpster. Check to see if these materials are allowed to be mixed with other debris or if they must be kept apart. Metal roofing can be recycled in large quantities, but it is important to keep it separate from other trash.

Your construction debris

A commercial roll-away container can be used to store heavy items like concrete, brick, stone, or wood. This kind of refuse is heavier and more difficult to transport than asphalt shingles. If you’re working on a large-scale construction project, you might need more than one dumpster or several loads. It is much easier to track the weight of bulky materials than asphalt shingles.

Debris from a renovation

You can dispose of any trash generated by a commercial remodel project, like drywall, metal, windows, or other materials, in a dumpster.

What is the ideal item to dispose of in a dumpster?

A few items shouldn’t be disposed of in a commercial container. Here are some of the most popular:

Paint, lacquer, or a thinner.

Commercial dumpsters are not suitable for paint, stain, color, or paint thinner. Only latex paint can be disposed of in this manner. Let the latex paint dry completely before you throw it out.

Oils and other flammable liquids.

You should not throw items away. To safely dispose of items, you can contact a professional waste management firm.


Find a local recycler if you have rubber tires that are no longer in use. They can be turned into playground material or other materials.


Asbestos, a toxic material, is common on construction sites. The asbestos dust can pose a danger to workers and the general public if it isn’t managed properly. An asbestos contractor is needed to safely remove the asbestos. You should not place the asbestos in a dumpster.

Electronics and batteries.

It is important to properly dispose of any electronics or batteries found on construction sites. Batteries can explode and cause fires. To ensure that these items are properly recycled, contact an e-waste recycling company.

Drums and tanks are sealed.

Sealed drums and tanks can be dangerous due to their potentially explosive contents or pressure. To be safe, dispose of these items separately.
