Haultail® Construction Waste Removal Service

best junk removal service

Construction waste removal is an enormous task if there is a lot. You need more than one person, right equipment, and the right size vehicle. In fact, you need a professional construction debris removal service to do it, in most cases.

What is a Construction Waste?

What is a Construction Waste?

The first thing you need is an idea of what exactly construction waste is. Most people think that the concept just involves the junk left from house construction. But it is not entirely correct. It includes other wastes like cement, bricks and concrete pieces which may affect the environment if not properly disposed of that are probably lying around after building roads, bridges, offices too etc.

Construction waste removal means dealing with what is generally known as junk generated while constructing or demolishing buildings. It may also include bricks, concrete pieces, and any other garbage which can be majorly harmful to the environment if left out in the open.

Construction and Demolition Waste Statistics: 

  • 23% of the national waste stream is estimated to be Construction & Demolition waste. (BTS)
  • The U.S. generated over 600 million tons of construction-related waste in 2018. (EPA)
  • C&D waste generation in the U.S. increased by 342% from 1990 to 2018. (EPA)
  • Between 2005 and 2018, C&D waste levels grew more than 10x faster than from 1990 to 2005.

Types of Construction Waste:

There are many different types of construction waste. Even the general categories are broken down more into smaller sub-categories such as concrete and glass, metal pieces and wood etc.

Here are some of those:

Concrete – This is a non-biodegradable material that needs to be destroyed in a landfill or disposed of properly after construction. Concrete usually consists of chunks of cement, gravel, sand and other aggregates. This needs to be disposed of by a construction debris disposal company like Haultail®.

Brick – Another material that is common in C&D waste and is generally considered safe for disposal is brick.

Metal pieces – Steel and iron are popular metals that are used for building or to make many various other machines and tools. Most of these metals once separated can also be reused by recycling them into newer metal products.

Gravel/rock – This is usually found on roadways and is a mixture of sand and rocks.  This type of material can also be reused for new roadways after it is been crushed up. 

Wood – Wood has many uses in the construction industry, particularly for framing and roofing.

Plastics – Plastic can be recycled and reused. This should be segregated from other wastes at the construction site.

Soil – Soil/dirt is a non-hazardous construction material that can be reused in future projects. It can be used extensively for filler material to several different construction sites. For example, infrastructure and highway projects require dirt as filler where it can be used.

Glass –  Glass is basically a non-combustible waste. Non-combustible means it cannot burn or explode as other materials can. Glass is usually separated at the construction sites and transported to recycling plants.

Benefits of Removing Construction & Demolition Waste

Besides these, there are many other materials that can make up a construction site. But construction waste management is essential for several reasons: 
  • Health and Safety: Construction debris contains many hazardous materials that can be dangerous to the environment. They should be disposed of in a proper way and not be left out in the open so they don’t affect people’s health.
  • Cost: Proper construction junk disposal can eliminate unnecessary expenses for several reasons like clearing up garbage, creating space for building projects or landfill maintenance, etc. This way, those extra costs can be avoided.
  • Compliance and Regulations: Environmental rules are in place to protect people as well as the environment from various harmful materials resulting from construction and development activities. So it is important that every business or project follows these set regulations for proper management of construction and demolition debris.
  • Recycling and Reusing: This is an important part of proper waste management practices in the US and has been regulated by EPA to help increase energy efficiency.
  • Safety: Proper construction junk management and removal is always a priority to ensure the health of employees and the public as well. It creates a safe environment for individuals walking on debris or working around construction sites.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: Having a responsibility towards society is also important. And, for that, we need to ensure that there’s no demolition waste lying around in the locality so that our neighbors are not disturbed in any way. 
  • Regulatory Compliance: As per the environmental protection Act, every business needs to adhere to all set regulations and provide proper waste management practices.
  • Time and Labor: Households and companies that follow these practices also save time and money because they don’t have to spend extra labor on taking care of managing construction junk or transportation to the landfill sites.

A Typical Construction Waste Removal Process:

The construction removal process is different for different companies. But they usually follow these steps (not exactly in the same sequence always):
  1. Collecting the junk from the site – The companies that manage construction waste will come to your site and collect any materials that you want to get removed i.e., broken wood/metal, tiles, bricks, etc. They also check whether there are any chemical or hazardous wastes around that might put anyone at risk.
  2. Sorting and storing the waste – Usually, the junk will be sorted out into different materials to be recycled. Then, it is ensured that any chemical or toxic material is stored separately and also keeps hazardous chemicals in airtight containers. This way, they can avoid harm coming to anyone from those wastes.
  3. Transporting to landfill sites – The wastes are then racked up in special containers and then transported to the landfills. These dump yards are usually not open for public use like disposal of household garbage or trash.
  4. Proper recycling – In case of materials that can be recycled, we at Haultail® will look for a recycling facility to manage the wastes. These recycling centers will take care of recycling these wastes and making them into new products, which can be used in construction or other industries.
  5. Proper waste disposal – The rest of the wastes are sent to landfills for proper disposal with no harm coming from them.

The Hierarchy of Managing Waste:

The Hierarchy of Managing Waste- Haultail

The old school method of reducing, reuse, recycle and then dispose of is the hierarchy of managing any type of waste, not just construction debris.

Reduce: Reduce the waste you create is always your responsibility. But, if that is not possible at the moment then try to reduce as much as possible in the future.

Reuse: If you cannot reduce it, reuse it and see if yesteryear’s products can be used for something else. You can also use things like cardboard boxes or broken tiles as packing materials or for gardening.

Recycle: If you can’t reduce it or reuse it, then try to recycle the waste in any way possible. For instance, broken concrete can be used in the construction of roads or as landscaping gravel.

Dispose of: You find yourself no longer able to use the waste, then you can only dispose of it. But make sure to dispose of it properly by going for the right process of disposal like recycling or sending them to a proper landfill site.

Storing: If you are unable to do anything with the wastes and cannot recycle them, then you need to store them safely until someone picks them up for recycling or disposal.
