Similar to how they maintain a list of products they accept, rubbish removal businesses maintain a list of items they do not accept. The majority of them will refuse to move hazardous rubbish or industrial waste, as well as goods that are too heavy to lift and handle or are located in hazardous places. Among the products they refuse to accept are the following (this list is not exhaustive):
Opened paint bottles/cans, pesticides, fuel, household cleaners, fluorescent light bulbs, medications, ammunition, pyrotechnics, asbestos, pressurized containers, medical waste, chemicals and solvents, gasoline, and any other type of toxic and/or hazardous waste.
The items stated in the preceding list require special disposal methods that must comply with local law. Corrosive, combustible, reactive, medical waste, and hazardous materials must all be disposed of in accordance with local laws, which is an additional liability that your rubbish removal business will naturally avoid. Toxic or hazardous waste is prohibited from landfills because it must be stored, handled, and processed in a certain manner prior to disposal.
