Does my waste get recycled?

When you rent a short-term dumpster, your goal is to fill it up and have the waste hauled away. But if you want your waste recycled, you might have to really go about it in a slightly different style. Waste in the majority of temporary dumpsters is not recycled because the containers are so large and hold so much material.

If you're interested in recycling any waste from your job, check into getting smaller containers. Many small dumpster firms in Alachua have a broad range of containers available, including those for recycling. These are usually smaller than temporary dumpsters; they are the size of regular trash bins and smaller.

If you wish to recycle, figure out if the business you are working with uses single stream recycling (you do not have to sort the material) or in the event that you'll need to form the recyclable material into different containers (aluminum cans, cardboard, plastics, etc.) This is going to really make a difference in the total number of containers you need to rent.

How high can I fill my dumpster?

You can fill your dumpster as high as you like, provided that you don't load it higher than the sides of the container. Over-filling the dumpster could cause the waste or debris to slide off as the dumpster is loaded onto the truck or as the truck is driving. Overloaded or heavy dumpsters are just not safe, and companies will not take unsafe loads to be able to protect drivers and passengers on the road.

In some areas, dumpster loads must be tarped for safety. In case your load is too high, it will not have the ability to be tarped so you will have to remove a number of the debris before it can be hauled away. This might lead to extra charges if it needs you to keep the dumpster for a longer period of time. Remember to maintain your load no higher than the sides of the dumpster, and you will be good.
