How to Get Rid of Construction Waste Efficiently
Saturday, 08 May 2021

Construction waste is almost always going to pile up after a big job, and that means that somebody needs to remove it and dispose of it. However, that can be a lot harder than it sounds, especially if you weren’t prepared to move it ahead of time. How can you prevent this with future projects?

Dumpster Rentals

 
One of the biggest things to consider when dealing with construction waste is the use of a dumpster. A standard roll-off-dumpster or trash dumpster can hold a surprising amount of materials, but you also get the benefit of having your waste picked up and removed along with the dumpster, too.
 
When you rent a dumpster, regardless of the size, you get the dumpster itself for a set amount of time. At the end of that period, the dumpster usually gets picked up – the rental company will then throw away and dispose of anything that’s inside it, meaning that you don’t have to do the hard work.
 
For larger projects, a dumpster can be an invaluable thing to have. Not only does it give you a single place to collect all of the waste without having to keep it on the construction site, but it also makes the disposal process a lot easier. Even in smaller projects, a dumpster can have plenty of benefits.
 

Recycling

 
Not all construction waste can be recycled, and some of it can’t even be properly re-used. However, there are still times where you could re-use and recycle some of the scrapped or replaced materials for other things. This even includes damaged, demolished materials like broken bricks.
 
In cases where something can’t be officially recycled, it can still be used in another way – floor times can become part of a garden path, for example. This can be a handy way to cut down on large amounts of waste.
 

Location

 
The closer you are to the disposal site, the easier it becomes to get rid of construction waste. It doesn’t matter how you transport it, or how much there is – a shorter distance can always be more convenient.
 
The location of your construction site can influence the options that you have available. For example, if you’re in Georgetown, then you’ll usually only want to use dumpster rental Georgetown MD businesses to save on money and travel time. Some construction sites are also in places where certain disposal methods aren’t really an option.
 

Prioritize

 
Always prioritize the things that you’re throwing away, if you have limited space. Paper and cardboard, things that can be recycled anyway, don’t need to be placed in a special dumpster. Concrete and scrap metal can’t really be disposed of in the usual ways, so you might need a dumpster to manage them properly.
 
Remember that some waste is also dangerous to have around, like panes of glass. The faster you can remove them, the easier it becomes to avoid sudden injuries if they’re shattered. Saving the easiest jobs for last is usually the best way to prioritize your waste.

"Take care, don't fight, and remember: if you do not choose to lead, you will forever be led by others. Find what scares you, and do it. And you can make a difference, if you choose to do so."
