What should I not put in a dumpster?
The laws that pertain to your personal trash can that you take to the side of the road each week also pertain to dumpster. These laws are implemented to keep our environment clean and free from contamination.
If you are ever unsure, just give our team at Trash Panda a call at (321)346-8516. We will gladly answer all of your questions regarding what can and can't be placed into one of our dumpsters. A general rule pertaining to what can't be disposed of via dumpster is: No liquid-based items/materials can be placed into our dumpsters, this is because the liquids can contaminate our water supply. This includes: chemicals of any kind, household cleaners (such as bleach, disinfectant, etc.), HAZMAT materials, anything flammable (to include, propane, gasoline, and oil), wet paint, tires or appliances with liquids associated with them (such as refrigerators and freezers), batteries, etc. These liquids can seep into the ground at the local landfill and contaminate our local water supply.
What can I dispose of in a dumpster?
Most non-hazardous waste, junk or debris in general is allowable. Some general items that can be disposed of in a dumpster are: toys, boxes, furniture/mattresses, rags, roofing, metal, clothing, tables, papers, water & fire damaged items, dirt, concrete, pvc material, wood, trash, furniture, siding, construction & demolition debris, sinks and flooring.
Almost all furniture (i.e. couches, chairs, etc.) are acceptable in dumpsters.
Most appliances can be discarded in our dumpsters as long as they do not contain freon or other hazardous liquids.
Yard Debris/Waste Disposal:
All vegetative waste (such as, mulch, wood, vines, etc.) is allowed in Trash Panda Dumpster Rentals dumpsters. Please do not mix vegetative debris with other debris (C&D, household junk, etc.). Our local landfills are able to keep our county clean and recycle this material by mulching it.
Most electronics (such as TVs, game consoles, DVD players, etc.) should be disposed of by contacting the local Waste Management’s ECO Department, but if you set these aside separately we can take care of that for you. They can be recycled instead of put into our landfills!
Construction Debris Disposal:
Drywall, brick, wood, stone, roofing shingles, concrete, asphalt, & other construction materials can be put in our dumpsters. Commercial renovation and new construction are subject to tonnage disposal fees of $23.66/ton, up to two tons are covered in the flat rate pricing for our 12.5 yard dumpsters.
Renovation Debris Disposal:
Insulation, drywall, PVC, siding, windows, and other construction and demolition debris can be disposed of in our dumpsters.

Some Extra Information:
Most landfills in the U.S. do not accept tires, so unfortunately you cant dispose of them in our dumpsters. However, if you set them aside (just like we do with electronics), we will take care of finding the proper place to recycle them, at no cost to you.
Batteries (Dry-cell and Car) should never be disposed of in a dumpster since they can leak harmful chemicals into the environment and damage it. To ensure we are doing our due diligence and our part for protecting the environment, we will also accept batteries ONLY if they are set to the side so that we can place them in a separate place not within our dumpsters for recycle.
