Why You Hate Construction Debris Removal

Posted by Junk King on Dec 24, 2015 12:12:00 PM


Face it - getting rid of all the construction material waste and trash that piles up on your job sites stinks. No one wants to do it and it takes away from production time. Really, construction debris disposal costs you in a number of ways.

Construction Debris Disposal - Someone Has To Do It

According the SBA, most general contracting firms are relatively small. General building and heavy construction contractors generate $36.5 million in average annual receipts while the "big guys" - the special trade construction contractors - earn about $15.0 million average annual receipts. Of those numbers, relatively few firms are in the top ten or so "big guys."

There are almost 730,000 construction firms in the U.S. and California has almost 10 percent of them. And of these, almost 80 percent are considered to be "small to medium-sized" companies.

What does this mean for you?

That relatively few construction firms have the resources to reliably and consistently remove, haul and properly dispose of all their own construction and demolition (C&D) waste cost-effectively and efficiently. This means, too, that most contractors - especially the smaller companies - are impacted far more significantly with the direct and indirect costs of construction removal of waste and debris.

As a Contractor You are Also a Business Person

You already know that, as a general contractor or construction company owner, you are a business owners. But the truth is that most GCs tend to think and act like, well, contractors. In other words, getting the job done is almost always "Job Number One" for these folks. Taking time to step back and look at the larger context of the construction business outside of a specific project is not necessarily an intuitive approach for many contractors. And that's because they tend to be more "hands-on" and "on-time and under-budget" types.

Which is what makes you a really good General Contractor.

But to be a truly effective contractor running a contracting company, you must also look for ways to minimize labor, lower your on-going costs, and maximize your existing resources. Leveraging innovation with your processes, systems, and procedures should be a part of your strategic plan.

So, what's all this got to do with construction debris removal?  

Just this: one of the most efficient ways to minimize un-productive labor cost and maximize your existing resources is to outsource all of the construction removal and C&D waste hauling to a professional firm that specializes in this type of work. What are the benefits?

Four Ways You Win By Outsourcing Your Construction Debris Removal

1. The Advantage of the Convenience Factor

The time you or your employees spend doing this kind of work is time not spent doing what you pay them for.

2. 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. Without proper training and proper equipment, disposing of some waste can lead to complications.

3. Measurable Cost Savings

When you factor in the time and wages spent on employees cleaning and hauling debris - and the opportunity cost of other work that's not getting done - it adds up. 

4. The Reliability and Efficiency of a Professional Firm

There is more to debris removal than simply throwing it into a truck. Knowing what can be disposed of legally, and where, is a large part of what makes a professional firm the better choice. And simply taking everything to the local landfill is not always the most cost-effective means of disposal. Recycling materials is a responsible approach for a business to take.

Outsourcing: You Have Choices - Choose the Best.
