Construction is a messy business, and one of the biggest tasks involved with completing a building project is getting rid of all the waste. Building debris, old drywall, old cabinets and ceramics, etc. – it all has to go somewhere. What is more, it needs to be handled and disposed of with maximum efficiency, ensuring a tidy site and preventing delays and obstacles. The best tips for removing construction waste involve, not only ways to dispose of waste, but to reduce it in the first place.
Less waste means reduced costs, and less time spent clearing away things you don’t need. Reducing waste also means that there is less to go into landfills, reduced use of natural resources, fewer pollutants, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Here are some of the most important tips to keep your construction site clean and efficient.
Reduce construction mistakes
Mistakes will happen. However, if you constantly have to throw away materials that have been cut to the incorrect length, or parts that have been incorrectly applied to the job at hand, you are building up waste unnecessarily. Take control of these kinds of unforced errors as quickly as possible, or you will find yourself throwing good money after bad as valuable resources get tossed into the dumpster.
Reuse or Donate Materials in Good Condition
There are plenty of ways to reuse building materials. Drywall scraps can be used as filler. Old bricks or concrete chunks can be used as a backfill or even for paving. Look for ways to make good use of things that you might normally throw away.
Ask your suppliers to work with you
Speak to your suppliers and see if they have ways to reduce waste. Perhaps they could deliver materials on returnable pallets that they collect later, or maybe you can return materials you don’t use. Have them package things minimally so that you have less wrapping and padding to throw away. The more you can trim away at the delivery stage, the less you will have to throw away later on.
Rent a Dumpster for the Rest
Dumpster rental is a must for any construction site. You can easily dispose of building refuse, and we will remove the dumpster for you once it is full. There are dumpsters to fit all construction projects, ranging in size from 12 to 20 cubic yards. All you have to do is book your dumpster; we will deliver it to you and collect it again after seven days. Based on availability, you have the option to rent your dumpster for longer if necessary. Our dumpsters can take all kinds of construction waste, including:
- Demolition debris
- Construction debris (concrete, bricks, stone, etc.)
- Old cabinets
- Bathtubs, sinks and toilets
- And more.
Be sure to double check the dumpster weight limits, too.
