For professional contractors, there is probably nothing more annoying and frustrating on a job site than construction waste removal. But it doesn't have to be that way.
When you consider the time, resources, labor and and money required time and time again over the course of a construction project, simply for removing waste and debris, it really adds up.
Construction Creates Waste and Debris
It's been estimated by he EPA that construction work in the U.S. creates more than 200 million tons of construction waste and debris each year. And, unfortunately, most of this waste ends up in landfills and dumps.
But, the good news is that many types of waste materials from housing construction can be reused, refurbished, or recycled into usable products. And it's critical that more of this occurs in the construction industry since landfill space in the U.S. is diminishing rapidly.
Pursuing alternatives such as reuse and recycling of waste materials is a better option. In addition, C&D (construction and demolition) waste recycling gives contractors and builders opportunities for contributing positively to the environment.
However, too many contractors simply leave the task to some of their crew little oversight at all.
Smart contractors know that managing the proper clean up and disposal of debris is a critical part of a construction job. And this means that dealing with construction waste in a strategic and cost-effective manner requires good management and forethought.

Why Outsource Construction Waste Removal
There are three main benefits from outsourcing you waste removal work:
- Minimize the Time Lost in Clean Up and Hauling
Stop having your crew leave the job to dump debris when they can stay on site working on actual production tasks. It's far better than having them cleaning and then going off site to the dump or recycling center.
- Minimize Disposal Costs
Every labor hour spent cleaning up, fuel, vehicle wear and tear, dumping fees and so on, can all add up to much more than the cost of outsourcing the task. It can be more cost-effective to outsource that work to a competent and professional specialist.
- Minimize Time Coordinating Clean Up and Removal
Getting rid of your construction trash is not just a simple matter of “throwing it away.” You have to know where to dispose of it, what can be recycled, who you can spare to do the work and which vehicle you can use, etc.
