Special Waste is not for General Trash Disposal

When you order a dumpster for a clean up project, you may imagine you can put anything in it.

Of course you do. You call the company, they bring you the dumpster, they take it and dump it at the landfill. Who cares what’s in it? Well, believe it or not, there are standards to which the Roll Off Service Provider is responsible to ensure the load does not contain any special/hazardous waste materials.
