How to Keep Your Dumpster Clean

A roll off dumpster can be an excellent way to store unwanted junk, debris, and materials while you’re working on a home or business project. 


Available in different sizes, roll off dumpsters eliminate the need for multiple trips to the landfill, so you won’t lose time and effort during your project. Price is another factor when it comes to renting a roll off dumpster – Atlantic Waste Group’s rates are the most competitive in the area.


Once a roll off dumpster is delivered to your property, it’s important to maintain it properly. This will allow you to get the maximum use out of it, and help keep the area around the roll off dumpster looking neat and clean.


It’s easy to treat a roll off dumpster as a catch all, and throw in garbage and other items throughout your project.

This practice can result in the dumpster filling up faster than it normally should – and if you’re throwing away food and similar garbage, you’ll run the risk of attracting vermin and insects. (Plus, you’ll also have to deal with unpleasant odors!)


Don’t forget that some items can’t be thrown into a roll off dumpster due to state and federal rules and regulations. Examples of these items include:


Hazardous Materials and chemicals

  • Corrosive materials and batteries
  • Paints paint thinner, stains or varnishes
  • Herbicides and pesticides
  • Neon light ballasts
  • Gasoline
  • Asbestos


Infectious or Medical Waste

  • Infectious debris and medical waste needles
  • Red bags and sharps.


Other building materials like bricks, masonry, and concrete can be thrown into dumpsters, depending on the service. It’s wise to remember that there are weight limits for these containers, and heavy debris can add up quickly.


Items like these can be picked up separately, and Atlantic Waste Group’s services are the answer. In addition to dropping off and picking up your dumpster, we can also arrange a time to haul away these materials.


Maintaining a roll off dumpster requires teamwork, and everyone on your crew needs to pitch in. You can make it easy by setting up rules and guidelines that are posted where everyone can see them.


Cleaning off a dumpster can also help keep your area looking professional. If you’re going to have this container on your site for an extended period of time, a quick rinse off with a hose is quick and easy.
