Moldy debris removal question

This 1 is kinda geared to Wannabe. I have a property that a broker wants trashed out. The 3 story building has alot of mold in the basement as the plumbing froze years ago and flooded it. the top 3 floors have some mold but not too bad. Most of the debris has mold on it and I have searched for any local or state codes about how to dispose of it but come up empty. He already knows that we wont do mold remediation so that is not an issue.

There is probably 150 cubes there mostly old furniture and some fallen ceiling tiles. this used to be a home for wayward women years ago and has about 20 different apartment type rooms in it. Can this just be put into dumpsters or does it all have to be bagged?

Just protect (respiratory-clothing) you and your labor. Dump the stuff in a common dumpster. USEPA has no regs on it...it's MSW (Municipal Solid Waste)

Thanks. I was worried about the spores that will get riled up in the process.

Yeah you can throw it away as normal debris. Bagging is to "help" prevent cross contamination of the structure BUT it sounds like the structure is already contaminated so I'd just put in my estimate that the property is contaminated and the debris only is being removed.

I do mold remediation, I have no clue about your laws there. We bag it all in the 3mil contractor bags.
