The Basics of Commercial Garbage Disposal

August 2, 2017.

As a business owner or manager, you know how important it is to manage waste. What if your business generates waste that can’t be thrown into a dumpster, though?

Many electronic devices and appliances, particularly air conditioners and refrigerators, cannot be disposed of with the rest of your garbage due to legal restrictions designed to protect the environment. Used tires and a wide variety of other items must be handled with care to maintain compliance with local, state, and federal guidelines.

What do you do with things like lithium batteries, chemical waste, and refrigerants when traditional commercial garbage disposal isn’t enough? The solution is easier and closer than you might think.

Why Commercial Garbage Disposal Can Be Limited

When you contract with a commercial waste management company, you probably expect them to take care of all the waste generated by your business. This isn’t always the case, however, due to the importance of maintaining compliance with environmental laws and a number of other factors.

Mercury, cadmium, and nickel are hazardous materials that also happen to be used to manufacture everything from batteries to television sets. These chemicals can and do cause serious damage to the environment when they’re disposed of improperly in landfills. A careless spark can set tires ablaze for days, or even weeks, making them unfit for disposal in a landfill. Chemical waste can cause a host of health and environmental problems. When your business operates with materials that cannot be safely thrown into a landfill, you’re left to source other options for disposal on your own.

Hazardous waste isn’t the only thing with the potential to complicate your waste management system. Large, bulky items like discarded carpet, remodeling or construction waste are unlikely to be accepted by your commercial service provider. Due to the potential for damage to dumpsters and containers owned by commercial garbage companies, many common solvents and paints are also restricted. In these cases, it’s best to call in professionals who understand unique disposal and recycling needs.
