3 Ways to Dispose of Renovation Waste
Renovations can be a hassle. Not only do you have to think about the design and materials needed, but you also probably have to adjust to a new sense of living while construction is happening. The last thing you want to worry about is how to dispose of the leftover material or furniture from the renovation. Here are a few ways you can get rid of all the scrap from your renovation project and begin to enjoy your renovated space clear of debris.
1. Donate Your Renovation Waste
One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. That creaky chair in the kitchen might be someone else’s blessing. That old table with the chips in it could be the exact rustic look your neighbor is going for. There is no telling what your old materials could mean to someone else after you complete your renovation.
If the items you are looking to get rid of are still in good condition then there are plenty of drop-off centers to choose from. Check out your local area for organizations and the rules regarding the donation process.
It is important to remember as your renovation progresses that keeping these old items in good condition could be essential to the ability to donate them. So, make sure as things are moved and replaced that you are cautious on how they are handled.
2. Dispose of Renovation Waste Yourself
Sometimes things only get done right if you do it yourself. Not to mention you could save a bunch of money doing it this way. All you have to do is find out where the nearest landfill is and take your waste there. But be aware that you can’t just dump everything in one place, landfills usually have certain sections for specific items.
It is important that everything is sorted ahead of time. Large pieces of furniture and scrap are usually in the same area and smaller debris tends to be placed sporadically in other areas. Just contact the landfill to get the information on the rules and regulations. A large truck will also be needed to cart over all your waste. If this seems like too much work, check option three!
3. Leave it to the Professionals
The most important thing to do when dealing with a waste removal company is to be completely clear on everything you want gone so that nothing gets left behind. That may seem like an obvious notion but it is easy to forget certain things and it happens more often than you might think.
You could go with your local dumpster service but sometimes it pays to go with a company that specializes in waste removal. While you can use your usual service they will likely charge you a fat fee for the larger bulk whereas you can get a better deal with a specialized service. In either case, give the company a call and let them know how much waste you have and what specific parcels need to be disposed of.
Renting roll-off dumpsters is also a popular thing to do. Usually around 10-30 cubic yards, these massive containers can hold a large amount of renovation waste. These bins are very large so check to make sure your property can contain it before you rent one. If your property isn’t big enough you can always contact your town/city and ask for a permit to put the dumpster in the street while you load the waste.
