Construction debris removal FAQs
What types of construction debris & waste can be recycled?
Almost all types of construction debris can be recycled near you in an eco-friendly manner, including concrete, metals, lumber, tile, plastics, porcelain, masonry, rock, insulation, carpet, and drywall.
If you want to dispose of construction waste materials on your own, you’ll need to check with your local facility to ensure they can accept it. Also keep in mind that transporting might be difficult to handle on your own, especially if you have a large load of debris to haul.
How to dispose of concrete
If you're laying a foundation or building a wall, you may find yourself with heaps of unwanted concrete all over your property. Thankfully, there are a number of alternative methods to dispose and get rid of concrete that don’t involve taking up space in a landfill.
Here are some ways to handle old concrete:
- Haul it to a construction and demolition waste facility.
- Give it to a local building supplies retailer.
- Advertise it for no cost or for sale online.
- Hire a professional junk hauling company.
- Offer it to companies that specialize in recycled materials.
- Offer it on your curbside to be taken away.
- Reuse it for home improvement projects.
- Hire a professional junk hauling company, such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to remove it right from where it’s located.
Unused concrete slabs still have value. Before you toss them in a landfill, be sure to consider all of the alternative disposal options in your area.
Can concrete be recycled?
Yes, concrete recycling is possible! When concrete is recycled it is crushed into smaller pieces and refined through several filtration processes. The refined product is used to create pavement, asphalt, building foundations, new concrete, mulch, wire, and oceanic reef habitats.
How to dispose of scrap wood
The proper way to dispose of wood depends on whether or not it is treated. If it is untreated, it may be collected with curbside pickup in some communities, taken to a recycling facility, sold as lumber, or reused. If the wood is pressure treated, varnished, painted, or finished in any way, it cannot be recycled. Instead, it should be reused as lumber or taken to a landfill.
How to dispose of bricks
Like concrete, bricks are often too heavy and bulky to be thrown into the regular trash heap. And when thrown out in large quantities, this non-biodegradable material takes up large amounts of valuable space in landfills.
Here is how you can responsibly dispose of your old bricks:
- Determine whether or not the bricks are in good condition.
- Donate your usable bricks to a local materials exchange program.
- Offer your bricks for no cost online or in your neighborhood.
- If your bricks are not usable, take them to your local landfill.
Bricks are one of the most sturdy, valuable resources for building large and small structures. If you can’t use them in your own DIY products, make sure to try to give them away to be reused before sending them to a landfill.
How to dispose of drywall
Drywall, also known as sheetrock, is one of the easiest construction materials to recycle or repurpose. If you can’t reuse, sell, or donate your old drywall, your next step should be recycling. Many cities do not accept drywall in their usual curbside recycling programs. However, you can call and find out if it is accepted on bulk pickup days or take it to a recycling center. If it is not accepted, it can be thrown in a landfill.
We haul away and dispose of all types of construction material waste, including:
- Concrete Disposal
- Asphalt Disposal
- Scrap Wood Disposal
