When I started working at my uncle's restaurant, I knew that there were a few things I needed to adjust. First and foremost, I decided to start working on cleaning things up. It had been quite awhile since the place had been cleaned thoroughly, so I focused on sanitation and garbage removal. I hired a trash removal company to come in and remove old equipment, and then we worked on taking special care to deep clean all of the different appliances. It was amazing to see how big of a difference we were able to make. This blog is all about sanitizing your restaurant.
While there are many parts to planning a good construction project, figuring out what to do with construction waste is key because it helps keep the site clean and safe for workers. Here are three common options for managing construction waste.
Your construction supervisor may recommend that you rent construction roll-off containers to help your site manage the construction waste efficiently. You essentially rent the container or dumpster from a specialized company, and then you set up a regular schedule for having the waste emptied. This can be a great way to keep the area clean and prevent garbage from overfilling, without you or your construction supervisor having to spend a lot of time managing it.
Construction dumpsters do come with a few challenges. For one, you'll probably need to apply for a permit if your container is going to take up any street space. The dumpster will take up the space that it occupies but also the few feet of space in front of it; this area needs to be clear so that the pickup truck can empty the dumpster conveniently. If you'd like more information about roll-off containers, check with a company like Chitty Garbage Service Inc.
Another option is to skip the dumpster and use a hauling company to regularly remove waste from the site. This option is somewhat less desirable for a few reasons, although it can save you some money. The sight of piled construction waste isn't the prettiest picture, and you may run into problems with your neighborhood association if you're planning a longer project.
There's also the issue of safety. The sharp ends of fragmented metal or wood from your home can be hazardous to anyone walking through your property, including your construction workers and any unsolicited visitors who happen onto your property. If you're going to store construction waste on your property without containing it, you may need to spend additional money anyway to beef up your property liability insurance.
Hauling The Waste Independently
Hauling the waste on your own is an option as well, as long as you have a pickup truck and can dedicate the space to storing and hauling construction waste. You'll transport the waste to a recycling or dumping center on your own, and then you'll pay by the weight for the amount of waste you deliver. This is a good option for small projects when you're unsure how much waste there will be and you can't commit to a dumping schedule.Share
