Managing Your Construction Waste

A construction project can produce very large amounts of waste, and it will be important for this waste to be effectively and efficiently managed. While managing this waste can be a major logistical aspect of your project, there are some tips and best practices that can make it much easier.

Clearly Separate The Waste That Is To Be Recycled

There may be waste from your construction project that you are wanting to dispose of through recycling. This waste should be stored in an area that is clearly separate from the waste that will be taken to the landfill. Furthermore, the dumpster or other container that holds the recycling should be clearly indicated. These steps can reduce the risk of workers accidentally putting the wrong waste in the recycling container, which could lead to some problems when it comes time to empty these containers. You may also want to provide a listing of the specific materials that you are wanting to recycle on the container. This can be a useful guide in situations where a worker may be somewhat uncertain as to whether a specific piece of waste should be recycled or not.

Rent Dumpsters Designed For Construction Waste

Construction waste will typically need to have its own specialized container and removal service to be managed. Unfortunately, individuals that may be new to managing the waste from a construction project may not appreciate this important fact. Fortunately, there are waste removal services that specialize in providing dumpsters that are capable of handling the waste from a construction project, and they can haul this waste to a facility where it can be effectively processed and disposed of.

Position The Dumpsters So That Workers Can Easily Put Waste In Them

When you are deciding where to position the dumpsters on your property, you will need to make sure that you are choosing a location that will be easy for both your workers and the waste management service to access. Furthermore, you will want to make sure that it is possible for your workers to easily place heavy or otherwise large pieces of waste into the dumpster. To meet this need, some managers may include a ramp or other elevated platform that will make it possible for workers to place this debris into the dumpster without having to lift it very high. In addition to making it easier and quicker for them to dispose of waste, this can also be useful for minimizing the risk of a variety of different injuries occurring.
