Pinellas County Waste Restrictions
The Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Plant burns our garbage, reducing its volume by 90 percent. This means there is less material to go in the landfill. When the WTE plant burns trash, it makes it into electrical energy and leaves ash behind. The plant burns the county’s garbage.
Anything that cannot be burned or recycled is buried in the landfill. This includes items like mattresses, couches, construction debris. D4R loads taken to the landfill is spread, crushed, and covered with ash from the waste-to-energy plant.
Please review our complete list of prohibited items when using our dumpsters.
Household Electronics and Chemicals
Please do not use our services to dispose of electronics and chemicals. For those items, please dispose through a Pinellas County collection point. The collection points are a free service to Pinellas County residents.
- Fluorescent bulbs
- Oils and antifreeze
- Gasoline, diesel and kerosene
- Hazardous and Toxic Waste
What about old cell phones and laptops?
Please do not use our services to dispose of computer electronics without prior approval of D4R. Doing so will adversely affect the health of our county’s one and only landfill.
What about old beds and furniture?
What about concrete and steel?
Construction debris is a perfect type of rubbish to use our D4R dumpsters for. Feel free to toss in the old nails, lumber debris and the kitchen sink too.
What about household garbage?
Will you touch my stuff?
We aren’t a roll-off dumpster service
“Kendal dropped off the dumpster right on time and picked it up later that day. Very impressed with the doors on the back, as the dumpster backed up to the garage and made loading super easy.” ~~ Laurean, Seminole
“It doesn’t get any easier. It was a snap to load our heavy, bulky items. Now I can see my whole garage!” ~~ Steve, Largo
