Green Demolition Waste Removal. Is It Possible?

November 4, 2017.

Does the environmental impact of your demolition and construction project lie heavily on your mind? With an intensified cultural focus on how we manage our waste, it’s often difficult to make it through a complete project without some concern. While this is certainly a good thing for the planet, it can be a stressful one for the average homeowner or small contractor.

The amount of waste associated with even a minor and simple demolition project can be astounding. Because the resulting debris is likely a wildly varied collection of material types, sorting and recycling it all is a tall order. Some materials may not even seem eligible for recycling, but the number of eco-friendly disposal options may be surprising.

Managing Demolition Waste Removal Ethically

Whether you’re an owner running your own project or a contractor working for customers, managing waste on-site is a vital part of the entire project. Growing debris piles are a safety hazard for workers and homeowners alike, and they also slow down progress throughout the work site. More of the materials than you might realize should be kept out of landfills, though. Recyclable construction and demolition waste items include:

  • Carpet
  • Concrete
  • Insulation
  • Porcelain
  • Rock
  • Rigid and non-rigid plastics
  • Masonry
  • Tile
  • Metals
  • Lumber

New developments in recovery, reuse and recycling for C&D wastes mean this list is constantly growing. Keeping up with current trends can require a substantial time investment. Factor in the logistics of sorting materials while managing a job of any scope, and it can often seem like the best choice for the environment is the worst choice for your project. Still, this assessment is far from the truth.

You don’t have to spend valuable labor sorting all of your debris in order to make earth-friendly and ethical choices regarding disposal. Dedicating someone to actively sorting out all these materials on-site can dramatically slow progress while being far from cost-effective, but it’s not your only option if you’re looking for a greener way to manage demolition.

Working with experienced professionals who haul away C&D waste with a focus on recycling and green disposal means you can rely on experts to take this important and stressful aspect of demolition off your plate. Even if your local facilities don’t offer single-stream recycling, a pro disposal company can remove waste from your site, sort it elsewhere, and ensure it doesn’t end up in a landfill.
