Items You Should Never Put in a Roll-off Container


Are you looking to rent a roll-off container for your next project? Before you start throwing away all of your unwanted items, it’s important to remember that there are certain items that you should never discard in a roll-off. Here are seven items that no roll-off rental company will allow on their property.

Hazardous Materials

This is the most obvious item to never put in your roll-off container. Hazardous materials include paint, gasoline, pesticides and other corrosive substances. Not only could these materials cause environmental damage, but they also pose serious health risks to both humans and animals. If you have hazardous materials that need to be disposed of properly, contact your local waste management company for assistance.


Electronic goods such as TVs, computers and cell phones contain hazardous chemicals like lead and mercury which can’t be disposed of in a roll off container without causing environmental damage. Instead of throwing them out with the rest of your trash, donate them or take them to an electronics recycling center where they can be safely disposed of or reused.

Mattresses and Box Springs

Mattresses and box springs contain bed bugs and other pests which can quickly spread if not disposed of properly. To prevent this from happening, contact a mattress disposal service who will pick up your old bedding and make sure it is disposed of correctly.

Hot Ashes & Charcoal

Ashes from fires or charcoal from barbecues can easily ignite if left in the bin too long or if placed near any heat source (like an exhaust pipe). To avoid this potential danger always dispose of ashes separately from other refuse!

Avoid discarding hazardous materials such as paint or gasoline; instead contact waste management services for assistance with proper disposal methods!
