Do you know the quickest way to completely derail a project of medium-to-large scope? Forget to plan for efficient and effective waste management. No matter where your project falls on the spectrum, from a full-scale hoarding cleanup to the average home redecorating project, you can find yourself in quite a pickle if you don’t have a strong plan for disposal in place before you begin.
You can sort and separate waste all day long, but you can’t make any progress if you’re not able to actually get it off the property. In densely populated areas, it becomes particularly difficult to manage your own project waste. A variety of DSNY programs do exist to help residential projects along, but they can be limited and aren’t always an ideal fit. For this reason, it’s a good idea to carefully consider all your Brooklyn waste management options before you begin.
Big Projects in Brooklyn: Waste Management Options
No matter what you’re trying to accomplish, there’s a good chance you have a deadline you’d like to meet. Some are self-imposed, and others are a bit more pressing. There’s truth to what they say about time being money, and yours is valuable. When a job runs overtime, it can also run overbudget with ease.
This can make DSNY programs a bit questionable, simply because you will likely need to make appointments for special pickup and they are limited in what they’ll accept. If you’re looking at a tight schedule and a large discard pile, you may find yourself still trying to schedule the appropriate appointment as your deadline flies past.
It also pays to consider the cost of manual labor, because you’ll have to haul any items to be picked up by DSNY down to the curb no earlier than 4 p.m. the evening before your scheduled appointment. Doors and locks must be removed from refrigerators, mattresses must be sealed in specialty bags, and a number of other guidelines must be followed. Items can’t protrude into the street, impede the flow of pedestrian traffic or impinge upon neighboring properties. By the time you get everything sorted, the best you can hope for is a case of sore muscles.
DIY hauling is almost never feasible for several reasons. First of all, you’ll need to be an expert in state, local and federal disposal laws to avoid breaking them inadvertently. You’ll also need a vehicle large enough to transport items to a wide variety of destinations, along with the patience to track down the appropriate donation, recycling and disposal facilities. You can easily dedicate days on end to just trying to manage trash, which is time you aren’t spending on the actual work at hand.
