Junk Removal Tips: Getting Rid of Remodeling Waste

Home improvement projects can generate a lot of waste which can quickly get out of hand without a proper junk removal procedure. Unlike household waste, you can’t get rid of construction and renovation waste by hauling it to the curb and wait for the local trash service to take care of it.

If you’re undertaking a remodeling project, whether that’s installing a new kitchen or knocking down a wall, it’s imperative to know the difference between waste and salvageable building materials. Too much of renovation waste ends up in landfills yet it’s pretty recyclable. And in some municipalities, recycling is no longer optional. Any homeowner or business owner looking to take on a remodeling project should check into local recycling requirements.

Before you go ahead and toss worn tiles and old lighting fixtures in the dumpster, consider these options for offloading your renovation waste materials more sustainably.

Tips for Sustainable Renovation Waste Disposal

1. Take waste items to your local recycling or architectural salvage center

Architectural salvages work a lot like antique shops – but for construction materials. Salvaging is an age-old building tactic that reduces waste and diverts building materials from landfill. You can even shop at salvage yards for discounted materials recovered from other homes or construction sites. You never know what treasures you might find.

So, don’t demolish your house or office. Instead, you can work with a contractor to deconstruct the remodel site. You might end up using materials from the existing structure and save a pretty penny in the process. Not only does salvaging save on purchasing costs; it will also significantly reduce your disposal fees.

If you have unique items such as Tiffany glass windows or marble structures crafted by a famous designer, you can actually walk away with some good money. Some of these items just need a little TLC. Your interior designer probably has an eye for such items and can help you determine what pieces are worth restoring.

2. Donate to a reseller or charity

If your discarded items and materials are still in good shape, someone else could benefit from your waste. Just as you might take your old clothes to a nearby Goodwill, donating renovation items is a meaningful yet sustainable way to get rid of old household items and fixtures.

There’s probably a nonprofit reseller, charity, or church group in your neighborhood that would love to take your old furniture and appliances off your hands. You can also donate generic items such as doors, lighting and ornamental fixtures as well.

3. Waste Disposal

Some renovation waste materials are unusable and must be taken to the dump. It’s best to consider your options so you can choose the option that will save you money.

  • Purchase a collapsible trash bin – If you’re reusing most of your building materials, your waste is most likely going to be minimal. A collapsible bin can help you effectively manage your trash while keeping the site from becoming unsightly.
  • Rent a dumpster – Dumpster are perfect for bigger renovation projects. You get to avoid the costs of daily junk removal as you can let the waste accumulate.
  • Drop off renovation waste – You can take your construction waste to the dump by renting a truck and disposing of it yourself. But this can be expensive and cumbersome. Not only do you have to sort all the materials beforehand, you’ll have to pay disposal fees.

If you’re concerned about how to dispose of waste the right way, read on. We have some valuable tips for you.

1. Sort and Recycle

Marin County has both single-stream and double-stream recycling programs, depending on where you live. For single-stream recycling, recyclables go in the same bin. In cities with double recycling, such as Fairfax, San Rafael, San Anselmo, Ross and Larkspur, dual-stream recycling means that you put paper and cardboard in the blue side whereas you place plastic, metal and glass in the brown side.

2. Truly eco-friendly waste disposal

Lots of other items not listed as recyclables by Marin County can be recycled too. These include textiles, yard waste, construction waste, appliances and even electronics. Also, you’ll find that most of these items can be reused as well. One person’s junk can be another person’s treasure.
