Break Down Bulky Items
To ensure you maximize as much of the dumpster space as possible, you should break down bulky waste. If you are getting rid of a lot of cardboard boxes be sure to flatten them down prior to throwing them in the dumpster. Old household furniture items such as bookshelves and dressers can be relatively easily broken down to take up less space.
Large Items At The Bottom
Large items that can’t be broken down should be loaded into the dumpster first so they are at the bottom. These items may range from old items of furniture, office equipment and unused household items. By keeping the larger items at the bottom of the dumpster it will also ensure they don’t fall out of the dumpster on the way to the landfill.
Fill In The Gaps & Avoid Overfilling
Once you have the larger items at the bottom of the dumpster you can fill in the gaps with old debris or waste to ensure you use as much of the available dumpster space as possible. This will also help with keeping an even weight distribution throughout the dumpster. The dumpster should not be overfilled. An overfilled dumpster can become a safety hazard to the driver and other people on the road.
No Hazardous Waste
This one goes without saying but toxic chemicals, asbestos, medical infectious waste, car batteries, paint and propane tanks are among the hazardous waste materials that should not be placed in a dumpster.
