With winter behind us and construction in full swing, so is construction debris removal. And that means far more than a clean job site.
Anyone who has worked in construction any length of time knows that it can be hazardous and safety is a priority. What many of them don't realize, however, is that construction debris removal can help minimize the dangers that can plague a typical job site.
Remodeling can be a dream project for a homeowner. Or a distressing nightmare. Finding the right contractor makes all the difference, but how do you know?
Now that it’s spring, for many people, it's time for that home remodeling project you’ve been thinking about. Whether it’s a makeover of the kitchen or simply an upgrade for your master bathroom, a remodel can improve your living space and add value to your home.
Construction waste is a constant element for contractors. While there are options for how to best dispose of it, recycling may not be an obvious one.
In many places, the arrival of spring means great weather and increased construction. But that also means more construction debris removal to take care of.
One of the never-ending and non-revenue generating tasks in every construction job is getting rid of the trash. Construction debris removal is a job that has to be done, takes time to get it done, and costs money without adding any profit. Contractors don't look forward to it and crews would rather do other things, but it is a job that must be done.
Every contractor knows that their occupation is particularly dangerous. Accidents can happen quite easily on a site but construction debris removal can help.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction Is "The Most Dangerous Industry" in the nation. This was underscored by the fact that, in 2010 for example, construction had the highest number of fatal injuries, accounting for 16.5 percent of the total work-related deaths that year.
Despite what many people may think, all construction waste does not have to end up in a landfill. With the options to recycle or reuse construction debris, contractors can choose to be green.
Construction projects create construction debris. Most of the time this is easily cleaned up and disposed of. But what about the debris from hazardous materials?
Construction can be dangerous, especially during the winter months when inclement weather makes for hazardous work conditions. But managing construction debris can help.
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.
