Construction waste includes a variety of the different materials left over from remodeling or renovating homes, businesses, or public recreational areas. Often times these materials can be considered hazardous or toxic, whether coming from your home, yard, or various construction sites in the immediate area.
And believe it or not, even concrete can pose a threat to human health when broken down into smaller pieces, as the miniscule particles can create airborne sicknesses and other health-related complications. Here at Junk-King, our primary concern is keeping you and your family from being exposed to these various types of construction waste and properly dispose of these elements before anything bad happens and do our best to avoid Murphy’s law altogether.
What Qualifies as Construction Waste?
Construction waste can range anywhere from asbestos to window frames; everything else in between may include rebar and other metals, electrical wiring, nails, insulation, plywood, drywall, roofing materials, and different types of concrete. Disposing of these materials quickly is our primary objective, as we’ll sort through each type of construction waste, categorize it, and haul it off to its proper destination. While some of these items are recyclable, others require special handling, and our team is prepared to deal with each item of refuse accordingly. The potentially harmful materials, are often packaged and sealed before transport, and in some cases, deposited into 55 gallon drums prior to being hauled off to a disposal facility. These types of materials will be removed from your site first, mainly because it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Recyclable Construction Waste
Many post-demolition construction waste items can be recycled, which includes different types of concrete. Clean concrete, also known as concrete free of any other debris, is put through a crushing machine and then recycled. The same principle applies to bricks and other types of masonry, which is much better than the old-school way of carting it off to the nearest landfill. Other materials such as lumber, metals, rigid plastics, and attic insulation can be recycled as well. It may take us a little extra time sorting through the rubble, but after all is said and done; a majority of said construction waste will be on its way to a number of recycling destinations.
Junk-King; the Construction Waste Alternative
While many construction sites are accompanied by huge bin receptacles, the refuse is often dumped into these bins and off to the landfills they go! No sorting through potentially reusable items; in fact, no sorting at all! It’s not illegal, but it is upsetting to see how some could care less about protecting the environment when it’s constantly in peril. We take construction waste, or any other refuse for that matter, very seriously, and we’re doing all we can to get the word out about how recycling is really making a significant difference in the community. Instead of making unwanted materials a problem, we’re making them a part of a much-needed solution.
