Dumpster rentals in VA are good for more than just hauling trash. Contact ESI Waste to hear about your recycling options, no matter how much waste you have to have removed or from what source.

Many people think about dumpster rentals in Virginia as a solution for excess trash that needs to go to the landfill. This is mostly true: quite a lot of what goes in dumpsters around the Commonwealth is hard or impossible to salvage, so there’s no real alternative to environmentally responsible disposal of this kind. Dumpsters are also great for recycling though, and increasing numbers of construction teams, manufacturers and even private homeowners are turning to roll-on/roll-off dumpsters for single-stream recycling too.

When Dumpster Rental in VA Works for Recycling

Many companies have discovered the advantages of adopting green approaches to the way they dispose of waste. More and more manufacturers and construction companies, especially in Virginia, are looking into recycling options for the waste streams they inevitably generate. This is good news and not just for the environment at large. Making a point of sending as much waste as possible for recycling, rather than tipping it into a crowded landfill, can become a selling point in company materials that attracts business from both environmentally concerned private citizens and government agencies.

Renting a dumpster for your job site or factory streamlines the process of recycling. If your business produces a lot of scrap paper or plastic, workers can simply be directed to drop those items into the green dumpster by the trash at the end of the shift. When the dumpster fills up, an ESI Waste driver can deliver an empty container and take the full one away, saving you a trip to the recycling center yourself.

What Kind of Items Can Be Recycled?

Recycling works well as a solution to commercial and industrial waste, but it isn’t possible with every type of trash. Reuse works best for sources with large, steady supplies of a single type of recyclable waste,savin and for residential neighborhoods where several families split the cost to collectively dispose of a single type of waste at once. Common types of waste that can be recycled include:

  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Aluminum cans and foil items, such as roaster pans
  • Plastic bags and rigid plastics
  • Paper, both newsprint and cardboard
  • Milk, juice cartons, cereal boxes and other non-corrugated cardboard products
  • Aerosol cans
  • Various metal items, such as wire hangers and the like
  • Construction waste, such as asphalt and drywall
  • Wood scraps
  • Electronic items, such as computers and old phones

Recycling is one way businesses and homeowners can responsibly dispose of their waste. Renting a dumpster is sometimes the most efficient way to organize and remove streams of recyclable waste.
