Trash Removal Services For An Upcoming Property Renovation

Posted on

If you have a construction project at your commercial property and you know there will be a lot of trash, it may be best to hire a removal service for your needs throughout the project. You can have a dumpster or trash bins dropped off to accommodate the amount of waste you have besides your normal needs, and schedule pickups when necessary.

Be sure to find a company that can remove construction trash and debris. Here are a few things to consider before beginning the renovations.

Hazardous Waste

There are different types of waste that can't be tossed into a regular dumpster, and this is often called "dirty waste" on construction sites. This would include materials containing:

  • Lead
  • Asbestos
  • Silica
  • Chemicals

If you have any of these materials lingering in the old building that is being renovated or having work done, expect to pay more for the trash removal services you need.

Removal Needs

Talk with the remodeling contractor to see how much waste there will be when they start the construction project. Add that with whatever you have that needs to be removed, to estimate the size of trash bin. The contractor may tell you need a service coming regularly. Be sure to get a full list of restricted items from the waste removal company.

Recycling Options

A way to lower expenses and to keep as much junk out of the landfills as possible is to recycle what you can from the building in advance. This can be things like metal, glass, wiring, plumbing, and more. The more you are able to recycle in advance, the less you have to put into bins to have hauled away throughout the project. You may even be able to get some cash if there is a lot of scrap metal.

Be sure to schedule the drop off of the trash removal bins in advance in case you have to do any prep work for the project and so you are able to get the size that you need. Look at the contractor from the company to be sure you are familiar with the payments required and how you will be billed each time the bin is picked up.

Keeping a construction site as clean as possible and properly disposing of debris is important. Hire a trash removal service and get the containers before you start your upcoming commercial property renovation project. Speak with your contractor or a trash removal service for more information.
