It might come as a surprise to some people, but there are certain things that you can’t put into a rental bin.

In fact, any objects such as dangerous chemicals or toxic waste, fridges, tires, dirt, etc. should never be placed in your rental bin, unless you’ve spoken to a representative and it’s been approved by the rental company beforehand.

Below, we’re going to go over a few other objects that should NEVER be put in your rental bin in Red Deer.

Objects to Avoid Placing in Your Rental Bin

Because the objects you place in your bin will eventually be dumped into a landfill, you can’t just throw everything into it.

So, if you have any debris which could be harmful to the environment or could potentially injure the waste management workers, it’s important that it not be placed into the bin.

The following list covers junk, garbage, items, and other harmful materials that should NOT be place into a rental bin under any circumstances.

  • Any type of rubber tires (Vehicles, lawnmowers, heavy machinery, etc)
  • Any appliances that contain freon (freezers, fridges, air conditioner units) unless they’ve been properly drained beforehand
  • Metal or plastic vehicle parts
  • Any type of chemicals
  • Cement, concrete, stones, or bricks (Unless the bin has specifically been rented for that purpose)
  • Dirt, soil or sod
  • Empty gasoline cans
  • Empty propane tanks
  • Full or empty cans of paint

For empty propane tanks, please return for disposal to stations where propane is filled. If they are unable to accept your empty tank, they may be able to refer you to the proper location. And as for full or empty cans of paint, there are many landfill sites that will accept these and dispose of them properly.

Heavy Debris

Any type of extremely heavy debris should never be put into your rental bin.

This is because it could cause stress and potentially damage the rental company’s equipment upon pickup or delivery at the landfill site.

Furthermore, this also causes a major increase to the final dumping cost at the landfill site.

Things You Can’t Put in a Rental Bin

We kindly ask you to follow the aforementioned rules, not only to respect our policies, but also for the health and safety of the environment, our drivers, and our waste management workers.

If you’re unsure about any particular type of junk, debris, items, or materials, please contact your rental bin agency and speak to one of their representative.
