What happens to the debris I throw in the dumpster?
The State of Connecticut has implemented an integrated Solid Waste Management Plan that all private haulers must abide by. This program reinforces source reduction, recycling, composting, and energy source recovery.
The use of landfills and incinerators are a last resort, and sometimes the only option, depending on your debris. The plan offers alternative methods to disposing of regular household junk, solid waste, construction debris, metal, petroleum products, roofing debris, etc… You can find more information on the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection website or you call (860) 424-3366 with any questions.
The state has published a helpful guide called the Connecticut Guide to Disposal of Household Items showing disposal options for dozens of types of debris.
Construction and demolition debris, roofing shingles, clean loads of concrete, yard waste, and other debris may be recyclable. Loads of mixed junk and debris typically end up in the landfill. If you’re concerned about how the debris in your dumpster will be disposed of, ask your dumpster service.
