Just finished remodeling your house? Here’s what to do with the rubbish

Major construction or home-improvement projects are usually time consuming and they require many major skills to be properly completed. What people rarely think about is that one of the most taunting tasks related to construction projects actually have to be carried out once the main work is done. That is of course removing all the rubbish and debris that have been accumulated on the property as a result of the work. Even if the project was relatively small in scale, it skill might produce quite a lot of rubbish. This is why you should figure out a way to handle the after builders rubbish removal.

What constitutes construction debris?

Construction DebrisConstruction debris varies in type, but they can be put into several distinct categories:

  • Rubbish left on the site after a new construction project – new material scraps, packaging, etc.
  • Remodeling/demolition debris and waste that are left from an old building – old wood, insulation, plaster, brick, fixtures, appliances, etc.
  • Rubbish from civic work projects like highway construction – concrete, asphalt, rubble, etc.

Depending on the nature of the project, the definition of construction debris and the way that the job was carried out, the amount of junk produced may  vary, but it is always impressive. Another important thing is that a considerable portion of the materials are reusable, so it is very important, once you commence a construction project, to figure out a way to approach the after-builders waste removal.

Your options

There are several ways to approach the problem:

  • Leave it to the building contractor. Be advised though that even though managing the junk clearance upon the completion of the job might seem logical for a construction company, not all of them consider it so. So, talk with them in advance to find out whether rubbish removal is included in the price of the service you will be provided with. Thus you will avoid unpleasant surprises at the end of the building experience.
  • Hire a skip and carry out the job on your own. This would be a nice and cost-efficient solution, but only in case you are prepared to put aside the time and energy necessary to complete the job. You will also have to find a nearby depot to recycle or dispose of the rubbish too – so have that in mind when you are deciding upon the skip hire alternative.
  • You can always outsource the after-builders rubbish removal. That might actually turn out to be the most sensible thing to do, because you will not have to navigate through a process you are unlikely to have previous experience in, or the desire to go much deeper in for that matter – that is why you will be paying the waste management company. The contractor would do the debris hauling, site clean-up, disposal of the junk and every else, while you sit back and relax. The best part is that you will be able to start enjoying the results of your building project much quicker.
