What To Avoid

The Don’ts of the Dumpster World

Q

Do Not: Overload a Dumpster

Try breaking down tree branches and other items to ensure they are not loaded over the top of the dumpster. Be aware that if the content within the dumpster is beginning to overflow, it is likely that the dumpster is overweight which can lead to damage and safety issues. We also must be able to tarp the dumpster for hauling. 

Q

Do Not: Top Load a Dumpster

Top loading is when you place light materials at the bottom of the dumpster and heavier ones on top. This can lead to trucks falling over due to uneven weight distribution. Try putting heavier materials like concrete or shingles at the bottom of the dumpster to weigh the container down.
