Important safety points and legislative requirements to observe include, but are not limited to:
- All bins must not be filled above the rim of the bin
- All waste must be secured within the bins and cannot have the potential to become unsecure during transportation
- All hazardous waste must be collected separately and cannot be collected with general waste or recyclable materials, as there are tracking requirements for hazardous materials. Furthermore, transfer stations/tip sites have laws with which they must follow in the removal of hazardous materials
- All hazardous waste must be correctly wrapped in accordance with the EPA rules and regulations
Any of the above issues may result in the bin incurring extra charges.
