Concrete

If you're dealing with a remodeling project that involves foundation work, chances are you'll have to dispose of unwanted concrete. There is a slight difference in price for concrete removal as it's not charged by volume due to weight restrictions on our truck's bedload. We'll be sure to discuss this with you when we come out for your scheduled appointment.

Concrete recycling helps to reduce the environmental cost of extracting virgin aggregates such as rock and gravel. The unwanted concrete from construction sites can be re-processed into crushed stone, helping to both preserve our natural resources and reduce unnecessary waste in our landfills.

Asphalt

Did you know that asphalt is 100% recyclable? Unwanted asphalt pavement and shingles can be recycled using a specialized machine known as an asphalt recycler. This equipment crushes, tumbles and heats pieces of asphalt for about 20 minutes, converting the waste asphalt into a product that is ready to be re-used for paving projects such as roads, driveways and walkways.

Scrap Wood

Wood is one of the most common waste items produced on any remodeling project - that's why 1-800-GOT-JUNK? salvages as much as possible. In many cases, waste wood such as lumber off-cuts and demolition waste can be either re-milled into useful pieces of new lumber, or it can be ground down into wood chips. These wood chips are then used to construct engineered board, eco-friendly logs for wood-burning stoves, and mulch for landscaping projects.

Scrap Metals

1-800-GOT-JUNK? provides homeowners and contractors with an easy way to recycle scrap metal from construction sites. Click here for more details about our scrap metal removal service.

Drywall

As the world's largest debris removal service, we recycle drywall debris whenever possible, helping to divert countless loads of construction clean up materials from our landfills. The gypsum in waste drywall can be re-used to make new sheets of drywall, or it can also be used to manufacture cement.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of construction debris & waste can be recycled?

Construction debris removal can be tricky to handle on your own. Especially when you’re not sure what kinds of construction and demolition waste can actually be recycled. The good news is, almost all types of construction debris and waste can be recycled including concrete, porcelain, tiles, plastics, wood, metals, rocks or insulation.

If you want to dispose of it on your own, you’ll need to check with your local facility to ensure they can accept the types of construction waste you need to get rid of. Keep in mind that transport might be difficult to handle on your own, especially if you have a large load of debris to get rid of.

If you don’t want to worry about the logistics of handling it on your own, call 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. We’re experts in construction waste recycling and will take care of everything for you. We’ll do all the heavy lifting for you and we’ll ensure everything is recycled and properly disposed of. You won’t have to worry about a thing!

Can concrete be recycled?

When a building or structure made of concrete is demolished, it often leaves a large amount of debris and waste. Instead of removing and hauling the concrete waste to the landfill, concrete and other metals can be recycled instead.

It goes through a bit of a process before it can be reused. The concrete that’s collected from demolition sites is put through a machine that crushes and refines the material down. The small chunks of concrete that come from this process are used in gravel for new construction projects.

If you have broken down concrete that you need to get rid of, call 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. We’ll collect the concrete and other construction debris right from where it’s located and load it into our trucks. (You won’t have to lift a finger!) Then we’ll ensure it gets recycled or properly disposed of.

How is post construction waste recycled?

So, where does all that construction waste go after a clean up? After it arrives at the sorting facility, the larger items are separated and everything goes onto a conveyor belt. As it moves along, smaller materials are extracted through a screening process.

Once all the materials are sorted and separated, they are sent to recycling facilities to undergo the next steps in the recycling process. For metals, this often means being melted down, wood is broken down further, and concrete is crushed and broken down.

When you let 1-800-GOT-JUNK? take care of your post construction clean up, you can rest assured that all your construction waste and any other debris will be recycled or properly disposed of.
