Best Practices for Construction Waste And Junk Hauling

Best Practices for Construction Waste And Junk Hauling

Construction can be a demanding industry and, while it can also be profitable, it comes with a large number of unique challenges.

Among these are the proper and most efficient and cost-effective means of dealing with the construction waste and debris that is produced on a job.

Safety is often uppermost in the minds of most GCs, right before budgets and time frames. Then there are issues with regulations, labor union rules, weather, and sub-contractor relations.

But there is always, always the matter of cleaning up and hauling off the junk and debris.

Construction Waste - What To Do With It?

Consequently, dealing with construction debris and construction debris removal is one of the most daunting challenges faced in the construction industry. Disposal costs are on the rise and productive resources are being taken up relentlessly to deal with the ongoing need to clean and dispose of construction waste. 

And because landfill space is diminishing rapidly, as well, alternatives such as reuse and recycling of waste materials is a pressing concern. The good news here is that the C&D (construction and demolition) waste challenge provides an opportunity for contractors and builders to contribute positively to the environment.

What's In the Construction Debris?

C&D waste is often  divided into a number of categories:

  • Waste left over from new construction (i.e. new material scraps, packaging, etc.)
  • Remodeling/demolition debris from older buildings (i.e. old wood, insulation, plaster, brick, fixtures, appliances, etc.)
  • Debris from large civil works projects such as highways and bridges (i.e. concrete, asphalt, rubble, etc.

How much is actually generated from construction and demolition work depends on how construction debris is defined and what's included, etc. The overall totals produced by the construction industry in the U.S. is impressive.

Part of the challenge, too, is that much of the waste materials are reusable in some form or another. A second challenge with construction waste is that some of it is considered hazardous.

Best Practices for Handling and Disposing of C&D Waste



Junk Hauling from Real Professionals for Your Construction Waste

Trash hauling and site clean-up might be considered “part of the job” for contractors, bit it really doesn’t have to be. 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.
