Construction can be a hugely gratifying profession, however, while it can also be highly profitable, it has it's fair share of challenges.
And one of these is the constant need for construction waste removal.
Long before considering how to best get rid of construction waste, the safety of the workers and others is often uppermost in the minds of most GCs.
In fact, this issue should rank above budgets and time frames. That's because, when it comes to a construction crew's safety on the job site, all the other issues such as regulations, labor union rules, weather, and sub-contractor relations become secondary.
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.
One Option for Convenient Construction Waste Removal
A common question we get asked by contractors and homeowners is, "Can you drop off a dumpster for my construction waste?"
The short answer is, "Yes!"
Junk King offers a variety of dumpsters for any type of project. Whether you are doing a home remodel, a major construction project, or just need to clean up after a job is complete, a dumpster rental may be the exact solution you need.
Our Junk King MINI dumpsters hold up to 12 cubic yards of debris, which can be more than enough for most projects, but you’re only charged for the space that you actually use. We’re the first to offer that kind of fair, transparent pricing on dumpster rentals, and we’re always looking for ways to help you get the best service at the most affordable prices.
With Junk King you can count on timely delivery and pickup of your dumpster as well as easy online ordering. And our MINI dumpsters can be a convenient solution for loading up your construction debris and letting Junk King haul it away for you. And always with great customer service and eco-friendly disposal.
So, whether you decide on having your construction trash and debris picked up for you, or you choose to have a dumpster on site to fill at your convenience, outsourcing is still the best solution both logistically and financially.
Five Considerations for Better Construction Waste Removal
Even though you may be a construction pro, you might still find it difficult to get rid of the debris during and after the job is complete. Whether it's demolition, remodeling, or construction, there is always the time-and-cost sensitive process of getting rid debris.
And you already know that concrete, wood, steel, tiling and drywall can all be extremely difficult to haul off from a construction site.
However, Junk King can provide you with efficient and safe construction waste removal so you don’t need to worry about the the disposal of debris after the project is complete.
Whether you need our services several times during a construction project or just once after it is complete, here are five reasons to consider using our hauling professionals to ensure that the construction debris is out of your way so that you can get on with the job.
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 Logistics
A common option for far too many businesses is to use their own equipment to pick up and haul debris from one place to another. Sometimes ends up as piles outside the shop, creating unsightly and potentially hazardous conditions. Yet having it removed quickly and safely by a professional hauling company instead will immediately improve the aesthetics, safety and appearance of a job site or shop area.
5. Benefit from the Reliability and Efficiency of a Professional Firm
There's much more to professional 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.
