Demolishing structures include more than just knocking a building down and clearing it out. There are proper procedures for handling waste and debris that should be followed for not only your safety but the safety of everyone involved in the process.
Once a contractor has the proper permits and authorization and have taken care of any fees as well as given proper notification to all surrounding businesses and homeowners, it is time to begin the demolition process. Most demolition equipment include protective gear, demolition tools and equipment such as front end loaders. But what about waste disposal? This is where renting waste bins comes in. Most cities will require contractors to report where refuse will be disposed as well to ensure proper disposal of hazardous materials. Having a place to store all of the waste and recyclable materials will reduce stress and work in the long run.
By implementing bin rental into your demolition process, demolition companies save hassle and costs of trips to the dump. This will also help in saving the environment by the use of LEED and transporting waste in one trip, if possible. Bin rentals create the convenience of disposing large amounts of waste on a flexible schedule as well. Contractors can either hire a waste hauling company to transport your bin or they can haul it out themselves.
Another thing to keep in mind will be recycling. A bin rental for the salvageable materials is a great way to get it ready for transport. This can both help the environment by lowering waste but possibly lower waste costs as well. Items such as rubbers, metals, concrete chunks and glass can be recycled for other construction projects.
Here are a few tips for working with container companies for bin rentals.
• Learn the lingo of the industry. Bin rental companies deal with professionals, so ensuring you are familiar with the terminology will help with the process.
• Check with parking enforcement if the bin will be placed on the street. If permits are required, obtain them before putting a container on the street.
• Leave room for transportation vehicles to maneuver when dropping off and/or picking up the container. Keep this area clear at all times.
• Get the correct size container for the job. Consider what materials will be stored in the container. Think of using a container a size larger than expected. Items such as carpet, drywall, and scrap wood take up extra volume in containers.
Most waste management services as well as some demolition and waste services offer bin rentals. Depending on the size of the demolition project and type of materials to be disposed costs can vary. Hazardous materials like asbestos, mold, lead, mercury and PCB need to be properly disposed of and bin rentals are an easy and efficient way to do so.
