General Waste & Roadside Bins

When disposing of your general waste, whether in an E&E Waste Frontlift Bin or a Roadside bin, it’s important to know what can or cannot be accepted. There are many reasons why some items cannot be accepted, ranging from high fire risk, to environmental hazards and even weight limits.

Please review the below lists before deciding on disposing of your general waste items. If you still have questions, please send us a query through our Contact Page.
