5 Tips For Better Construction Waste Removal

Posted by Junk King on Dec 3, 2015, 11:59:26 AM


Construction can be a hugely gratifying field of work and, while it can also be highly profitable, it has more than it's fair share of challenges.

Long before construction waste removal is considered, crew 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. 

Construction Waste Removal Can Be Better

However, it is dealing with construction debris and construction waste removal is still one of the most daunting challenges faced in the construction industry. Disposal costs are on the rise and productive resources are being taken up relentlessly to deal with the ongoing need to clean and dispose of construction waste. 

And because landfill space is diminishing rapidly, as well, alternatives such as reuse and recycling of waste materials is a pressing concern. The good news here is that the C&D waste challenge provides an opportunity for contractors and builders to contribute positively to the environment. The bad news is that getting rid of the construction waste, either for disposal or recycling, is still a costly chore for most contractors.

But it can certainly be a better chore when outsourced.

Outsourcing can be your best option for better construction waste removal. When making the decision to hire a professional firm to deal with your ever-present construction waste and debris it helps to consider the very real advantages.

Five Considerations for Better Construction Waste Removal

1. Leverage the Convenience Factor

When you stop to consider the amount of time involved in clearing out, loading, and then hauling and disposing of your junk you may be talking about number of hours, possibly days lost. The time you or your employees spend doing this kind of work is time not spent doing what you pay them for.

2. Take into Account the Health and Safety of Your Employees

Depending on the quantity and nature of your waste, the simple work of moving it can be hazardous. Cuts, abrasions and back strains are very real consequences of clearing and hauling junk. In addition, you may be working with actual hazardous materials that need to be handled properly and legally. Without proper training and proper equipment, disposing of some waste can lead to complications.

3. Take Advantage of the Measurable Cost Savings

When you factor in not only the time and wages spent on employees (or yourself) cleaning and hauling your junk, and the opportunity cost of other that’s work not getting done, it becomes an expensive proposition. Using your own employees for junk hauling not only invites potential issues with injuries and overtime costs.

4. Factor in the Intangible Benefit of Enhanced Aesthetics

A common option for far too many businesses is to simply shuffle their excess equipment, furniture and other junk from one storage space to another. Sometimes these items end up outside their place of work, creating unsightly and potentially hazardous conditions. But the prospect of having to sort, load, haul and somehow dispose of all that stuff keeps them from doing anything about it. Yet having it removed quickly and safely by a professional hauling company will instantly improve the aesthetics, safety and appearance of a business site.

5. Benefit from the Reliability and Efficiency of a Professional Firm

There is more to proper junk removal than simply throwing stuff into the back of a truck. Knowing what can be disposed of legally and where constitutes a large part of what makes a professional firm the better choice. And simply taking everything to the local landfill – assuming there is one – is not always the most cost-effective means of disposal. Recycling and re-purposing many items and materials is a responsible approach for a business to take.
