Busted! The Truth of 3 Common Dumpster Rental Myths Revealed

Renting a roll-off dumpster is the most efficient way to clear on-site debris for many types of projects. Whether you are building, renovating, landscaping, or planning something special, having a dumpster on-site can speed cleanup, and a roll-off service ensure that you save money and time on trips to the dump while keeping your site clear.

However, many people don’t actually know what to expect from dumpster rental, in part due to myths floating around about how dumpster rental works and how versatile it can be for your projects. At NowRush, we’re here to bust these myths and bring you the real info you need on renting the right dumpster for your future projects.

Myth #1: “Renting a Dumpster is a Difficult Process.”

Myth #2: “I Can Throw Anything in a Dumpster.”


Not all debris can be safely disposed of using a dumpster. Although most of your debris can be thrown in our roll-off containers, certain materials must also be disposed of carefully, and are not appropriate for dumpster disposal. These include

  • Strong Adhesives
  • Paints or Inks
  • Batteries and Electronics
  • Chemical Cleaning Products
  • Food Waste
  • Fuel or Propane Tanks
  • Motor Oils
  • Mattresses
