What materials are not permitted in our roll-off dumpsters?

Unfortunately, Winters Bros. Waste Systems can’t dispose of all materials, as we strive to be as eco-friendly as possible and compliant with all waste removal regulations. To honor our commitment to the environment and our Long Island customers, we have to reject materials that pose a potential hazard to human health or the environment.
