Put is definitely the nicest option but I think throw would be okay too.
 
dump - to put down or drop something in a careless way 
It would be strange to ask people to put rubbish in the bin carelessly.
I think dump also implies a large amount, i.e. industrial waste dumping means you are disposing of large amounts, usually illegall.y
