What To Put in a Commercial Container
Whether you are starting a home renovation, landscaping your yard, or simply de-cluttering, you may choose to rent a roll-off bin from a private company and have them handle the disposal of your waste material for you.
The Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) service does not provide a bin rental or waste hauling service, but there are several options for this type of business in the Comox Valley. Once you have rented a container, knowing what to put in your container, and what fees and charges will apply once your bin is brought to one of the CSWM landfill facilities, will help you make a more informed decision on the best way to dispose of your waste material.
What To Not Put in a Commercial Container
When you rent a bin for commerical or residential material, it’s important to keep in mind what is allowed in the bin versus what should be recycled or disposed of separately. If your bin contains waste materials mixed with recyclables, it could result in more than a double rate per metric tonne, to the possiblity of your load being rejected by the landfill facility, whereas most recycling would otherwise be free.
