Acceptable & Unacceptable Materials

Looking for a dumpster rental in the Seattle, Bellevue, or Tacoma area? Look no further than Hungry Buzzard. Our team works closely with you to schedule pickups/drop-offs and more. When it comes to using our dumpsters, there are a few guidelines about what can and cannot be disposed of due to environmental reasons. Generally speaking, most non-hazardous waste is permitted, from yard debris to appliances. On the opposite end, you typically can’t dispose of hazardous materials, including batteries, paints, tires, and more. Check out our dumpster material guide below for more information.
