Frequently Asked Questions
Commercial dumpsters are relatively flexible, with different types available for different types of businesses, but there are some major dont’s to look out for. You are not permitted to fill the dumpster with materials that exceed the top of the container. Additionally, common materials that aren’t allowed in dumpsters include (but are not limited) to: Heavy construction debris, liquids of any kind, dead animals, medical waste, radioactive material, appliances, batteries, tires.
ZTERS account managers can help you determine if your facility needs specialized equipment such as compactors. Commercial waste compactors cut down on the volume of waste and frequency of pickups. Let us help you with a waste audit to right size your waste solution and decide if a compactor is right for you.
A good rule of thumb for determining how much space to leave around your dumpster is to take the width and height of your dumpster and double it. This leaves plenty of space for trucks to load and unload with ease. You’ll also need to make sure the delivery truck can safely access the area where the dumpster will be stored.
If your trash exceeds the height of the container, additional costs will be incurred. Overloaded containers can make it harder and more dangerous to load or unload.
Our account managers can help you conduct a waste audit to find out how much waste your facility produces and we’ll help you find the best waste solutions and pickup schedule to meet your needs. We offer many commercial waste solutions, including compactors and Compology camera systems, to help you accurately and efficiently measure and dispose of your building’s waste and recycling.

ZTERS + Compology Camera Technology
Rightsizing your waste service is usually a guessing game. Sometimes you’re paying for a half-empty dumpster pickup, while other times you’ve got garbage piled up around an overflowing bin. For most facilities, the only way to know how much garbage is generated is to manually audit and count waste output. And who has time for that? Almost no one. Most property owners and facility managers end up throwing money out with the trash every month.
That’s just the start of wasted resources. There’s also the surprise of being hit with contamination fees. Or trying to track missed pickups. Owners, tenants, and facility managers don’t have time to chase down and catch every contamination risk or missed service.
That’s why ZTERS Commercial Waste now installs Compology camera technology at all our locations. With dumpster camera tech, we can gather data and more accurately rightsize your waste service. No more manual counting or trying to guesstimate waste volume. No more wondering whether a contaminant is buried in a dumpster or whether a pickup was missed.
Dumpster cameras have been shown to reduce spend by as much as 30 percent. They also cut down on contamination fees by catching most contaminants before the container is serviced. It also holds haulers accountable for reliable service.
