All building and renovation projects are bound to yield much debris. This may include sawdust, bricks, cardboards, nails, old bathroom tubs, and so forth. The tricky part comes in when it is time to dispose of all this waste after the job is done. Research done has showed that out of all the building materials you have, about 13% of it will end up in a landfill without ever being used. So, how to dispose of such safely and affordably? At the end of the day, the composition of the builders waste should guide you on the most ideal way of disposing of it. Make use of the below tips to guide you on how to effectively get rid of your such waste fast and effectively;
– First and foremost you need to know the options or alternatives available when ridding your premises of builders waste. You can opt for skips, skip bags, recycling, or Grab Lorries. What can be recycled should always be sorted out and sent to a recycling facility. Whatever can’t be recycled will be sorted out later by the waste removal company you’ve hired to transport the waste to a landfill.
– It’s worth noting that the law is strict when it comes to how you can dispose of builders waste. Even if the amount of debris and waste you wish to dispose is minimal, you can’t go and dump it in a landfill unless you are the person who carried out the building or renovation works. Which is why it is always recommendable to hire a waste clearance company; such is more suited to determine what goes where, without clashing with the law.
– Like aforementioned, quite a percentage of your building materials will remain. It could be a few tiles, pieces of timber, nails, or even paint. Instead of throwing these away together with the other debris, you can sell those to the nearest Salvage Yards or even on eBay. There’s always someone somewhere looking to use what you’ve left behind, at reduced prices.
– The Skip you’ll hire will vary in size depending on the amount of waste present. You must also take into consideration the space available in your compound. Often, the skips come in three sizes; 1-2 Cubic yards, 3-4 cubic yards, and 6-8 cubic yards. A good waste clearance company should be the one applying for the Skip permit from the authorities, rather than letting you do it.
– Ski bags are ideal for small building and renovation projects. You can buy them online or from most DIY warehouses; once you have filled them with the waste generated you can go ahead and call a clearance company to come and collect.
Building waste clearance should never be a hard task. You just need to plan adequately and in advance, so that even as the building works proceed, you have a clear strategy in mind on how to clear the debris afterwards. This applies to both home and commercial building works.
