Renting a dumpster is a convenient and cost-effective way to get rid of debris, trash, furniture and other items you need to get rid of but don’t have the means to transport. However, you should check with your dumpster rental company before you sign a contract as to what items can be thrown into a dumpster.
Most dumpster rental companies provide recycling services. This may mean setting these items aside so they are not hauled off to the junk yard. If you have furniture or appliances that are still viable, make sure you have them hauled off separately so the dumpster rental company can transport these items to a local shelter or The Salvation Army.
Even though these items may get lost in the mix, talk to your dumpster rental company about hazardous materials. These can include energy efficient light bulbs, cans of paint, propane tanks, aerosols and other household chemicals. The dumpster rental company may have protocol for disposing of these items, not to mention a chemical leaking into the ground is never a good thing.
For a complete list of what items are dumpster allowable, consult with your Atlanta junk removal company prior to the actual time of disposal.
