It is a shorter list to say what you cannot put in your dumpster. Prohibited wastes include: hazardous waste, hazardous waste containers, explosive materials (to include live ammunition), radioactive waste, animal carcasses, sewage and septic waste, compressed gas cylinders or gas cans, barrels, PCBs, lead acid batteries, liquid wastes, paints and used oil any appliance that contained FREON unless legally extracted by a licensed company. We ask if you throw away tires that they are cut in half so they are no longer a compete circle and any yard waste must be 4 feet in length and 2 inches in diameter. If you have any more questions on any of these items give us a call at989-229-7000!
To ensure that you stay under the ton limits we recommend that you use a 10-yard dumpster for shingles. A 10-yard dumpster will hold up to 25 roofing squares. Every one roofing square is equal to 100 square feet of shingles. Please keep in mind, if you have cedar shakes to remove as well that you may need a bigger dumpster.
