Yet, with dumpster rentals comes some precautions. To ensure the safety of our team and keep our units standing strong, we ask that you not throw the following items in your dumpster unit.


When it comes to hazardous chemicals, knowing what is safe to throw away and what isn’t can be a challenge. Most cleaning supplies, for instance, are full of dangerous toxins and chemicals that are not safe to throw away. This goes for many lawn-care products, as well as batteries, aerosol cans, paint thinners, solvents, and countless other times. Check labels and research any item you are unsure about before tossing it in the dumpster.


Any type of electronics, such as computers, televisions, cameras, phones, chargers, and similar items should never be tossed in the trash. These all contain really dangerous elements that are super harmful for the environment, when not properly disposed of. There are many options out there, as far as recycling these products in a safe, useful, and responsible way, so definitely turn to one of these instead of tossing them out.


If you have some old appliances, such as refrigerators, washing machines, stoves, or more, that you needing to get rid of, you will have to either donate them or find a proper facility that will recycle them. These items contain some harmful substances that should not be tossed in your local dump.


Tires can be hazardous in many ways and should never be disposed of in your dumpster rental. Luckily, these are typically easy to get rid of or donate. Many people seek out old tires for home projects, so try putting out an ad online to see who may want yours! Otherwise, most car dealers or tire service centers will take them and recycle them properly.

If you still have questions about what is okay to toss in your rental and what is not, feel free to give us a call! We are more than happy to answer your questions and will be glad to assist you in any way that we can. Thanks for choosing The Mobile Attic for all of your storage and disposal needs!
