Construction sites should always be as sanitary as possible. However, no matter the project, waste is bound to build up and needs removal.
Construction zone waste amounts are always much bigger than something that can fit in the trash can, and sometimes construction waste requires specialty removal.
Here’s a look at some things your construction team can do to practice effective and legal waste removal.
Plan Your Dumpster Rental Ahead of Schedule
The last situation you want to be in is having a large amount of waste at your site and nowhere to properly dispose of it. Plan ahead and consider the type of debris you’ll create and how much you’ll accumulate throughout your project.
Planning ahead can help you communicate your needs with a dumpster rental company and ensure you get the right dumpster size for the job.
Roll-off dumpsters from Texas Johns come in three sizes, 20, 30 and 40 yards. No matter what size dumpster you rent, we guarantee we’ll deliver enough receptacles to your site and help you keep it safe and sanitary.
Don’t Mix Your Site’s Waste
If you know that your site will accumulate construction waste as well as regular garbage, it’s in your best interest to rent more than one dumpster for each type of waste.
Most municipalities won’t accept mixed waste and the rejection could leave your site’s project in the lurch until you resolve the problem.
Always Outsource for Hazardous Waste
Sometimes a construction site uncovers hazardous waste on the job. Some examples of hazardous waste at a construction site are:
- Paint Thinners
When hazardous waste is involved, it’s dangerous for your team members to handle it, and it’s illegal to dump it in your roll-out dumpster.
Many hazardous waste removal companies can help your construction site remove waste while remaining in compliance with local and state regulations.
Your roll-off dumpster rental team can help you connect with the right entity for the job.
Never Burn Waste
It can be tempting to save money on a dumpster rental and burn waste to maximize the use of your dumpster’s square footage.
Burning construction zone waste, even wood and plastic, is illegal in Texas. So, unless you’re ready to put your team’s reputation and finances on the line after some hefty fines, renting more dumpsters than you think you’ll need or scheduling regular pick-ups with your rental company is always best.
