So you've made the decision to do that big home remodeling project. You've got the plans, bought the materials, and have the tools. But could you be working with hazardous waste?

The sobering reality is that construction projects are known for the presence of "hazardous materials."

Certainly for some, the idea that construction waste removal can help minimize the dangers of accidents might seem like overkill. But, according to OSHA, out of the almost 4,000 worker fatalities recorded in 2013, over 20% of them were in construction. Of those, between 40 to 60% were caused by falls. And many of those falls involved construction debris.
