Contractors, builders, and even smaller “handyman” operations in San Diego need construction debris removal at some point. Some more often than others. And it’s the part of the job no one likes nor wants to do.
Fortunately, Junk King San Diego is here to help with our professional construction debris removal service.
Does Your Firm Need Construction Debris Removal?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) measures the generation of C&D (construction and demolition) waste or debris in the United States. This C&D debris is the waste material produced from construction, renovation, and demolition activities for buildings, roads, and bridges.
How much of this type of waste do we generate?
According to the EPA, an estimated 600 million tons of C&D debris were generated in the United States in 2018, which is more than twice the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated.
And there’s a good reason for that.
As a state, for example, we generate a great deal of this construction debris:
“According to CalRecycle’s 2014 Disposal Facility-Based Characterization of Solid Waste in California, construction and demolition (C&D) materials are estimated to account for between 21.7 to 25.5 percent of California’s waste disposal.”
And someone has to remove all that debris from job sites and dispose of it properly. This is why Junk King San Diego specializes in construction debris removal – so you don’t have to!
Who Wants to Do Construction Debris Removal?
Perhaps one of the most bothersome tasks for building contractors is getting rid of construction debris. Clean up and disposal is labor-intensive, time-consuming, costly, and takes away from production time.
Not only do you have to take your workers off their jobs so they can clean up and haul off construction debris and trash, but there are also the extra fuel costs, the added mileage on the company vehicles (along with more wear and tear), and the various disposal fees each trip.
Another sobering reality of construction debris removal is that it also requires taking it to someplace suitable to dispose of it.
In addition, while a small residential job might only need cleanup and disposal once at the end of the project, for most larger projects that last weeks or months, site clean up and debris disposal can be a regular task that must be done every week or even multiple times throughout the week.
Construction site debris cleanup and removal is something that has to be done, but no one really wants to do it.
As a result, the typical approach is usually a haphazard one and often put off until it can’t be ignored. And this can be dangerous as all the debris, waste, and trash littering a construction site is also a safety hazard.
However, by taking a few simple, proactive steps, your entire construction debris disposal process can be streamlined and improved.
A Green Construction Debris Removal: Reducing the Waste
Yes, you can minimize the piles of construction debris on your project site. However, while this approach does make clean up and disposal of construction debris more efficient, there needs to be an organized process for it.
With that in mind, we’ve put together these three easy and strategic tips to help optimize your construction debris disposal process:
Use Dedicated Debris Containers
Contractors and their subcontractors too often overlook the efficiency of small debris dumpsters for staging building material debris and waste. In addition to the safety aspect of keeping cut-offs and other debris littering a site, designated containers allow recyclable materials to be separated from hazardous materials.
Schedule Regular Clean Ups Using Designated Workers
Creating a “Cleanup” plan and a schedule as part of your construction process is an efficient approach for disposing of site debris. Having the same members of your crew tasked with regular clean-up at set times can also ensure that consistent and quicker clean-up takes place, as well. The plan and schedule should include your subcontractors at every phase of the project.
Contract a Professional Firm for Construction Debris Removal
Outsourcing the loading, hauling, and disposal of your construction debris is one of the best ways to minimize your own costs for wages, fuel, fees, and time lost in production. While it might seem to be somewhat counterintuitive to pay someone else to haul your trash, you can actually be spending far less and doing far more by outsourcing this work.
Along with these tactics, an effective alternative approach to demolition is to engage in planned “deconstruction.”
This approach is used for existing structures that must be demolished or partially dismantled prior to new construction work being done. The result is far less debris to be disposed of and provides substantial amounts of usable building materials that can be recycled, repurposed, and reused.
While not a new or novel approach to demolition, it is not always a familiar one for many contractors. To help make the process easier, we’ve created this brief checklist and guide:
When it comes to construction debris (and all junk!) at Junk King San Diego we believe that landfills are a last resort.
That’s why our standard method of disposal starts with recycling, reusing, and repurposing as much material as possible, up to 60 percent of it, in fact.
Which is our way of demonstrating that “Being Green” isn’t just a marketing slogan for us.
In fact, when Junk King was founded in 2005, we were the first recycling-based junk removal service in the United States. And at Junk King San Diego we have continued to recycle, repurpose, and reuse as much as possible of everything that we pick up at every location.
