What Materials from a Renovation Cannot Go in a Dumpster?

Spring is here, which means now is the perfect excuse to clean or build something new in your home. A home renovation such as painting, landscaping, or woodworking can be just what it takes to make your home look and feel fresh, but the last thing you’ll want to deal with is the leftover mess. So, if you’re wondering what to do with all that accumulated debris, look no further.

Renovation Waste Material Dos and Don’ts for Rental Dumpsters

While renovating, you may accumulate waste ranging from drywall, asphalt, and even concrete. But the question is – what should not be put into a rental dumpster? Just as there are rules for what you can throw away in your trash can, there are also guidelines for waste you can put in your rented dumpster.

Generally speaking, you cannot put any type of hazardous materials or liquid-based items in your rented-dumpster. This includes items such as: wet paint, oil (all other liquids), asbestos, and certain types of appliances. 

Other materials such as insulation, stone, drywall, tile, wood, and asphalt, and other construction materials can all be put into a rented dumpster. 

The Travis and Williamson County have specific regulations for items that cannot be disposed of in a dumpster – including hazardous waste. You can find more information on this site.
