Can You Throw Away Asbestos in a Dumpster Rental?

What Can and Can’t Go in a Milwaukee DumpsterCan You Throw Away Asbestos in a Dumpster Rental?

While renting a dumpster can be incredibly convenient for both commercial and residential clean-up jobs, you should be aware that not everything can be thrown away in a rental dumpster. They have certain restrictions due to environmental concerns, and the city of Milwaukee won’t permit certain types of materials in dumpster rentals.

Asbestos is on a list of restricted items in Milwaukee, meaning it isn’t allowed to be thrown away in a dumpster. Some types of asbestos-containing materials not allowed in a dumpster rental include: 

  • Slate siding
  • Pipe coverings
  • Duct coverings
  • Floor tiles
  • Loose-fill insulation
  • House siding
  • Ceiling tiles made from asbestos

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) strongly recommends you hire a professional to remove the asbestos-containing materials from your home.
