Debris Removal: Types Of Debris

The accumulation of waste, trash and debris, especially when left unattended, can lead to serious safety and legal issues. Action Roll Offs is a premier dumpster rental company in Houston, Texas, whose main aim is to help local residents dispose of their waste and debris in a safe and efficient manner.

While it might seem like all waste is the same, this is not the case. Our dumpsters can be used to dispose of different types of waste in accordance with municipal regulations and guidelines. Read on below to find out more about the different types of waste commonly found in our rental dumpsters.

Residential Waste/Debris

Various projects around the home can result in the production of a huge amount of waste and debris. Garage clean outs, general de-cluttering, home improvement and repair projects can all result in the production of a lot of waste that requires immediate disposal.

In addition to regular household waste, residential waste may also include furniture, old household appliances (except refrigerators, freezers, and a/c units), and cabinets among others.

Regardless of the scale of the mess of garbage or debris created as a result of any of the above mentioned projects, our residential dumpster rentals can be used to make the work of clearing this mess affordable, efficient and swift.

Storm Debris

A huge storm can throw your life into disarray. Strong winds can blow all sorts of debris, including broken tree branches, roofing materials and other objects, onto your property; all of which can pose a serious safety risk to you and your family or any other occupants of the property in question.

To avoid spending all your time clearing away such waste, consider using a rental dumpster to hold all the debris strewn all over your property in one place. We can then collect the dumpster afterwards, leaving you to get back to your normal life, swiftly and conveniently.

Yard Debris

From Grass clippings and tree trimmings to dirt, property clearing and landscaping projects can generate a huge amount of waste. If you are planning such a project you can use our dumpsters to clear away all of the resulting waste, in an efficient and timely manner, leaving you with a clean and clear, well-manicured property at the end of it all.

Construction Debris

Construction jobs are known to produce a lot of waste. Anything from lumber, flooring, hardware, concrete blocks, drywall and carpeting can be included among the long list of debris and waste commonly associated with construction jobs.

The sheer weight, size and amount of waste produced during construction projects makes for a tough clean up job. To keep your job site well organized and clear of any waste and debris you need to work with a highly reliable and equally tough waste removal service. Action Roll Offs provides heavy duty construction dumpster rentals and offers timely collection of all of your construction site waste.

Restricted Waste/Debris

While all the above types of waste can go into our rental dumpsters, some waste items and debris require special handling as dictated by federal, state and local guidelines. All waste materials classified as hazardous waste or debris are considered to be harmful to people or the environment and should therefore not be disposed of in a rental dumpster.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hazardous waste can be divided into four different types:

1. Universal Waste

These are items that if not disposed of in a given manner can become hazardous.

2. Mixed Waste

These waste items are considered to be both hazardous and radioactive at the same time.

3. Listed Waste

These wastes are made up of hazardous industrial and manufacturing by products. There are four different classes of listed wastes.

4. Characteristic Waste

Any waste products that demonstrate the nature of listed products, in terms of corrosiveness and/or toxicity are categorized as characteristic wastes.

Before having any hazardous waste removed from your property, it is recommended that you consult the local authority responsible for the disposal of solid wastes. To properly protect the environment, people and animals, there are specific facilities designed to handle different types of hazardous wastes.
