Construction Debris Removal, Chester 

Whether it’s a large construction project, or a home renovation involving excavations, refurbishments or demolitions, construction debris needs to be hauled away. It poses a huge problem to progress as the construction takes place, as contractors and homeowners simply don’t have the time to interrupt their building activities.

We have the right equipment for the job, and a well-trained crew to do it.

Approximately a quarter of the construction materials used in the construction industry becomes waste, which is a potentially hazardous situation if it ends up in our environment. Let’s have a look at how we deal with construction waste.


Firstly, What is Construction Waste

Debris that piles up from the process of construction is called construction waste and comes in various forms.

  • Wood is a common element of construction debris, and can easily be reused or recycled
  • Bricks, cement, and concrete leftovers can be crushed and used for aggregates in roads, pathways, and other surfaces
  • Demolished debris is a mixture of all kinds of materials that need sorting individually.
  • Plasterboards are potentially hazardous, and often found in construction debris that need to be hauled away by your local junk haulers.
  • Metal and steel scrap are to be separated as the demolition or removal takes place and put aside in a pile.
  • Cardboard and paper are frequently found, and all these are recyclable.
  • Tiling and cement are messy and need to be isolated from the rest of the construction debris.
  • Glass and plastic debris are also evident and should be separated into bins for recycling

Besides all the above, there are many small pieces of construction waste in building materials, not mentioned above, that have some hazards associated with them. One of these is asbestos, which was a common material used way back, now seen as a danger to health. Other elements such as oil-based paint, electrical wiring and insulation need to be isolated for mercury or other solvents.

Who Can Help Reduce Construction Waste?

As there are many specialized roles in the construction industry, and planning of a new construction involves many aspects, each role can have an impact on the reduction of construction waste in a waste management plan for a building project.

  • Contractors usually work against time and to budget, but may not be responsible for the actual purchase of materials. So, they could be wasteful in their work if not asked to focus on minimizing construction waste.
  • Developers are aware of the overall cost of a project and take the biggest risks when doing a new development. Therefore, adhering to a budget is essential and they are likely to include a waste management plan in their overall project plan.
  • Designers can influence the ergonomics of the project and are mostly always mindful of reducing waste.
  • Architects are key to the control of construction waste as their cost estimates for a new building will form the basis of the construction budget. Architects also have a role to play in checking on building progress and monitoring costs, including waste percentages.
  • Builders, like contractors, are responsible for the demolition and construction, which means the management of construction waste lies squarely with them.
  • Civil Engineers are often in charge of large projects where the cost of construction waste can be a big factor, if not controlled properly
  • Town Planners are professionals who are aware of the environmental implications of disposing of construction waste and are required to ensure that plans are submitted according to the building regulations.


What can they do to help?

  1. Improved designs can save money and reduce excessive waste during construction
  2. Training of workers and all suppliers involved with the build will help create an awareness of the need to keep construction waste under control, and how to recycle and dispose of it responsibly
  3. Commitment to the principle of waste management by all parties will ensure that all involved are on the same page and working towards a common purpose
  4. Incentives may be offered to keep within budget, or even better, to save costs and achieve savings on budget.
  5. Clean technologies also play a role in reducing waste, and these can be introduced by the professionals during the planning phase.


Sustainable Construction waste reduction programs

What programs are there for responsible disposal of Construction waste?

  • Prevention: The laws of construction debris disposal are in place to stop illegal ways of dumping when a service provider will haul away the debris.
  • Minimization is a recognized process in waste management that uses minimization techniques to prevent waste from ever being generated, also called source recycling and reduction.
  • Reuse: a typical example of such an application is the excavation soil for roads, which is a saving on the need to mine materials from a quarry.
  • Recovery is a process where waste is reused to make other useful products, and is a common practice nowadays
  • Disposal is the last resort, and is where the waste is removed and incinerated, buried at landfill sites or at sea, or recycled.


Benefits of Reducing Levels of Construction Waste

  • Increased profits can be achieved if the waste management plan is successfully implemented, and the amount of construction waste is below estimate, saving money this way and increasing the profitability of the venture.
  • The reduction of construction debris will help conserve landfills.
  • By reducing the levels of construction waste, it also lowers the risk of having harmful effects on the environment of Chester, which is important for us all.
