Residential Garbage Removal in Wellston FAQs:

Do you offer household hazardous waste disposal?

Per federal law, Rumpke cannot accept hazardous materials including:

  • Batteries

  • Fluorescent light bulbs

  • Paint

  • Antifreeze

  • Freon

  • Combustible materials like gasoline and used motor oil

  • Any other items identified with “Danger” or “Poison”, including pool chemicals, insecticides, and some cleaning supplies

The best way to dispose of such items is to use them up as intended. However, if you have any left over, you should never throw them out in the trash or down the drain. This is not just harmful to the environment, but can also cause dumpster and trash truck fires, especially during warmer weather.

That said, you have options. The Gallia Jackson Meigs Vinton (GJMV) Solid Waste Management District that Wellston belongs to often hosts special events for collecting items like tires and electronic waste (a.k.a. e-waste, which includes old computers, devices, power supplies, and chargers). 

You can also bring specific items in to national retailers that will accept them, such as old batteries at Best Buy or The Home Depot, and used motor oil at auto parts retailers. You can also try to donate items like leftover paint and cleaning supplies to local organizations like schools and homeless shelters.. 

How do I schedule bulk trash removal, such as for moving or renovations?

Reach out to us today for an open-top dumpster rental, which allows you to easily discard large volumes of junk from spring cleaning or your home construction project in one go. Our dumpster sizes range from 15 to 40 cubic yards. Call us ahead of time, so we can determine the best dumpster for you, as well as advise you of any items that may or may not be accepted at the landfill. 

How do I dispose of large items like furniture, mattresses, and appliances for disposal?

If you would like to have larger items picked up curbside, make sure to let us know at least 48 hours before your regularly scheduled collection. A few notes:

  • We cannot do curbside pickups of televisions larger than 32 inches.

  • Mattresses and upholstered furniture must be completely sealed in disposable plastic for removal.

If you have several large items that you are discarding as part of a garage, basement, or attic cleanout, you might also consider a dumpster rental.

Finally, you can also bring items to our location here at Beech Hollow Landfill. 

Additional fees may apply.
