It's an obvious fact and reality that construction work creates debris. There is waste from building materials, packaging, and demolition. There can be debris from collateral materials that end up on the job site. And there is sometimes "green" waste from trees and other plants that have been removed for construction.
Construction can be a hugely gratifying field of work and, while it can also be profitable, it comes with perhaps more than it's fair share of challenges. Safety is often uppermost in the minds of most GCs, right before budgets and time frames. Then there are issues with regulations, labor union rules, weather, and sub-contractor relations.
Are you engaged in construction work? Do you dread the never-ending task of your construction garbage removal? You're not alone. But it doesn't have to be a dreaded chore. And - here's the really good news - it doesn't have to be something you do yourself!
No matter what type of construction job you are engaged in - whether it's a residential or commercial project, new construction or remodel, building or demolition - it will always produce construction trash. Often huge volumes of it.
When most people picture construction sites they don't usually think of construction waste disposal and they certainly don't think of trash removal companies. But a reputable and professional firm that specializes in removing and hauling away construction debris can be a huge benefit to a construction project.
One of the never-ending, most un-glamorous, and non-revenue generating tasks in every construction job is getting rid of the trash. Construction debris disposal is a job that has to be done, takes time to get it done, and costs money without adding any profit.
Construction is a field that is made up of contractors and sub-contractors so “outsourcing” is a familiar concept, even if it’s not called that. However, the idea of hiring a junk hauling firm for construction debris removal is not a concept that is typically considered by site supervisors and GCs.
New construction creates a fair amount of waste and debris. Remodeling, especially on a large project, produces its own kind of debris and trash that needs to be taken care of. Or perhaps you are simply a business looking to do some major cleaning of your facilities. All of these activities require junk hauling.
All construction waste is not created equal. When it comes to waste removal, especially from construction sites, hazardous material has to be taken into consideration. And, while some substances and materials are more easily recognized as being hazardous, you might be surprised at what else is considered hazardous.
As a contractor, have you ever wondered how much actual debris and waste is produced on your job sites? Or have you ever wondered how much of that material could actually be reused somewhere, somehow? The truth is, in a typical residential remodel, for example, almost 75% of the debris can be recycled. Which means that construction waste disposal does not automatically mean a trip to the dump!
