You might be considering involving a building waste disposal company for the removal of construction and demolition waste generated after a renovation or some other project. If so, then there are a number of things you can do to ensure that you get the best results from hiring professional building waste disposal services.
Get familiar with the three Rs principle
Building waste disposal companies make use of the three Rs principle to effectively dispose of construction and demolition waste.The three Rs refer to the three approaches used in dealing with the various types of building waste. These are:-
- Reduction of building waste at the point its created
- Reuse of various waste materials in other applications without altering their structure or form
- Recycling of various materials salvaged from the building waste
By learning about the various ways in which the three Rs can fit your particular building waste disposal needs, you might end up saving quite a lot and might even actually make something from the exercise. For instance you might decide to reuse the tile fragments from a renovation as flooring for garden paths, on steps, around the swimming pool or on the porch.By reusing most of your building waste you end up paying very little to have the rest of the waste removed by the waste disposal company.
Prepare space for on-site sorting
There are different types of waste that actually make up building waste. Some of the items that constitute the waste include powdered concrete and fragments, porcelain tile fragments, masonry, plastic, steel rods and beams, copper wires, cardboard, soil, rock, wooden boards and so forth. To allow for the efficient removal and disposal of construction and renovation waste, the waste must be sorted at the point of origin. This is why you need to make sure that the crew of the building waste disposal company will find ample space to put the containers they will use when carrying out the sorting exercise.
Plan before any actual building waste is generated
The most opportune time to plan on how you can make the best use of the services provided by a building waste disposal company is actually before the waste is generated.This means sitting down, making a list of all the types of waste that are bound to be generated and coming up with strategies on how to ensure this waste is minimized.
