Tucson AZ Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Disposal Tips

Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Disposal Tips

Items containing hazardous or poisonous materials should never be reused or recycled. They require special disposal, and in some cases professional abatement. If you’re uncertain whether you have any hazardous materials, consult your local health department for qualified inspectors and abatement contractors. Then contact your local waste management authority for specific disposal guidelines.

Here are the most common hazardous materials


Asbestos: May be found in duct insulation and taping, ventilation systems, vinyl tiles, popcorn ceilings and fireproofing materials. Professional abatement is usually required by law.

• Lead paint: Used on 80 percent of houses built before 1978, lead paint can be found on siding, windows, doors, cabinetry, furnishings and floors. You can carefully repaint small items, but never sand them as the lead dust is toxic. Larger items that require stripping should be handled by professionals.

• Creosote: Found on nearly all landscape timbers. Never mulch or reuse, especially in play areas for children or pets. Disposal is usually with ordinary trash.

Mold: If you have widespread mold on any surface, hire a mold inspector to test it before removal. It may require professional abatement. Disposal is usually with ordinary trash.

Freon (CFCs or HCFCs): Found in many refrigerators, freezers and window air conditioners. Professional removal of refrigerants is required by law before disposal of the appliance; many salvage operations offer this service for an added fee.

• Other: Heavy metals and other toxins may be found in batteries; electronics; fluorescent light bulbs; and outdated solvents, paints, finishes and adhesives. All should be treated as hazardous waste.
