Managing waste is part of any construction or kitchen renovation project. Undergoing a kitchen renovation comes along with several responsibilities. It involves hiring labourers, buying the required raw materials, coming up with a rough estimate of the time the renovation may take and lastly making sure that the construction site is clean from all the unwanted materials strewed around.
The waste often includes remnants from building materials, soil, broken glass, concrete blocks, broken bricks, stone chips, etc. Quite often, contractors make use of the labourers to help in clearance of the construction waste but more often than not a specialists rubbish removal company will be required to come in.
Construction waste is often hazardous, and when not disposed of properly, it can cause harm to local residents as well as the environment.
1. Recycling the construction waste
Over the past years, greater emphasis has been placed on recycling or construction waste. There are different strategies one can utilise to implement an active recycling program for their waste after undertaking a kitchen renovation.
The key is choosing a solution which is both economically viable and relatively simple. Fortunately, simple accessories can make modern construction machinery a massive asset in the recycling process. You can choose source separation which means separating different recyclable materials at the job site. This provides higher recycling rates and lower recycling costs. In fact, the revenue generated from this practice can pay for some materials. As a bonus, it often leads to a cleaner, safer worksite.
Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks to consider as well. You can also opt for co-mingled recycling. Co-mingled recycling means placing all recyclable materials into a single container which will then transported to a processing facility. The advantage of this approach is only one or two containers will need to be on site, the logistics are more straightforward, and workers do not need a separate material as they go.
2. Materials Reduction
Debris is some of the most unexploited materials. Precise estimation of the construction materials that you will need to complete your renovation is one you can apply to lessen waste and in the process save some money. Though it is advisable to purchase more than you need, only buy enough materials that will get the job done. Approximating is one of the effective ways to reduce waste though it may prove problematic.
3. Use of Roll-Off Dumpsters for Waste Disposal
As a renovation project evolves, you can put all the waste material into a dumpster. The roll-off dumpster is designed to have rolls and wheels of a massive track. All you need is to place it on the working site and let t remain there until it is full. It is the work of a waste removal company to tow it away. After it is towed away, it can be emptied into a landfill or can be taken to a recycling plant where separation process takes place hence finally can be reused.
