It’s no secret that working on a construction site will mean that you have to deal with a lot of waste. It’s simply not viable to leave all of this waste on the site until the construction has been completed as it gets in the way of workers and can also present a safety hazard. There are a number of things that a construction worker must consider when determining the best course of rubbish removal;

  • Safety
  • Budget
  • Timeframe of the build and each rubbish removal stage
  • Regulations to do with safety, employees etc.
  • Weather

Whilst not all of these considerations are controllable, it is important that they are dealt with and worked around in order to effectively remove waste.

Recycling waste

One of the most important things to know when you are in charge of organising construction waste removal is the various materials that can and cannot be recycled. With so many different materials on a construction site there are many things that cannot only be recycled but also reused for future projects.

Some of the ways that you can reuse your construction materials include;

  • Reusing paper and cardboard for packaging
  • Clean wooden materials can be used for mulch and biomass
  • Sand, dirt and rock can all be used as landfill cover across the site
  • Concrete can be converted into gravel

Of course, much of the waste will need to be removed and either thrown away or recycled. The best option is to hire a professional rubbish removal service as they will have a deeper understanding of what materials can be recycled and the best waste or recycling centre to take them to.

Dangerous waste

The idea of dangerous waste continues on the point that a professional rubbish removal service is necessary to ensure the safe and clean removal of construction waste. Along with the many reusable and recyclable materials that appear on a construction site there are also so many hazardous ones. Some of which are listed here:

  • Aerosol cans
  • Paint cans and excess paint
  • Asbestos
  • Elements containing lead

These items need to be disposed of carefully and can’t just be thrown into the rubbish pile with everything else. They require a special disposal process to ensure that the chemicals do not contaminate our water and oceans impacting on the broader environment. By hiring a professional team to remove your construction waste, you ensure that it is disposed of carefully and in an environmentally friendly manner.
