Construction Trash Removal: Not Your Favorite Job?

Posted by Junk King on Jan 21, 2016 2:12:05 PM


Construction trash removal is one part of a construction project that no one really wants to do. Building, renovating, remodeling - doing to the "real" work of construction - is far more preferable than cleaning up and having to make dump runs. And for the site foreman or project manager, taking people off the job to clean up and haul trash is never a good deal, either.

The Burden of Construction Trash Removal

With the rising cost of disposal and dumping fees, the increasing regulation and decreasing availability of landfill space, construction trash removal is a costly chore for most contractors. It can be put off for a while, but that can become unsafe and legitimate safety hazard. A local resident with an available truck can be hired to do the job, but that can be risky.

However, when the sheer volume and variety of debris and waste generated by construction activity is considered, the prospect of simply dumping construction trash begins to look less appealing.

Why Construction Trash Removal Should be Outsourced

While your projects may never generate substantial volumes of debris, there are still a number of good reasons to consider outsourcing the trash removal work to a professional firm. Aside from freeing up your own resources for more productive tasks, you can know that your waste and debris removal will be handled quickly, safely, and efficiently.

The ideal set up for most construction projects is to schedule a series of waste and debris clean ups and removal. And by making use of a reliable professional firm the work can be scheduled and carried out with a minimal amount of disruption to the progress of the job. In addition, outsourcing this task allows the contractor to keep his crew working on the productive aspect of the project.

Trash hauling and site clean-up is usually considered to be “part of the job” for contractors, bit it really doesn’t have to! When you consider that every hour your crew spends picking up debris, cleaning the site, and hauling and disposing of the material, is an hour NOT spent generating revenue on a project. And the bigger the job, the more the opportunity costs add up.

Add to that the possible costs of hazardous material disposal and even required training for your employees, the benefits of outsourcing these tasks become more attractive.

Finding the Right Construction Trash Removal

Once you have made the decision that outsourcing a series of site clean ups is cost-effective and will increase the safety factor, you need to determine which firm is the right one for the job. And while you can certainly find plenty of guys with trucks willing to do a “cheap” job, going that route will end up being anything but cheap.
