If you are renting a dumpster for the first time in the southeast Wisconsin area, you should be aware that not everything can be thrown away. Dumpster rentals have certain restrictions due to environmental concerns, and Wisconsin doesn’t permit certain types of materials in dumpster rentals.

Hazardous waste is on a list of restricted items in southeast Wisconsin, meaning they are not allowed to be thrown away in a dumpster. Some examples of hazardous waste not allowed in a dumpster rental include:

  • Paint
  • Paint Products
  • Solvents
  • Fluorescent Tubes
  • Chlorine
  • Bleach
  • Rust remover
  • Antifreeze
  • Pesticides

If you have hazardous materials you need to throw away, get in touch with your Milwaukee-area recycling center to find the best way to dispose of them.
