Attention Builders: 5 Benefits of Construction Waste Removal On Your Job Site

Your build site is only as efficient as it is clean.

Whether you work in construction, fit-out, demolition, refurb or renovation, it’s inevitable you’ll end up with a range of bulky, dangerous construction waste on-site.

Twisted metal, unused timber, tree stumps, excess brick – more than a frustration, these forms of construction waste slow your productivity and bring your progress to a crawl.

It’s common for Australian worksites to use skip bins for waste removal. But large skip bins become magnets for the neighbourhood’s junk overnight and pose harsh restrictions, leaving more construction waste lying around on-site than actually in your bin.

If you’re ready to save time and money, here are 5 proven benefits of using rubbish removalists to clear your excess construction waste.

#1 - Fewer restrictions on construction waste

No matter what size project you’re working on, you’ll end up with a range of hard waste on-site.

Between bulky appliances leaking refrigerator coolant to piles of dirt and soil; twisted aluminium to sheets of cracked glass, hiring a skip bin is going to put pressure on your budget because there’s a good chance you’ll need more than one.

With restrictions on what can and can’t be disposed of in each skip, you’ll soon have multiple skips lining your worksite (with you covering the cost of each bin).

Rubbish removalists provide an all-in-one service with fewer restrictions. You’ll need a licensed asbestos removalist in Western Sydney to remove asbestos or dangerous chemicals, but for the remaining 99% of hard waste you don’t have to worry about separating brick from soil, or metal from glass.

Just point to your excess construction waste and your rubbish removalists will clear your site.

#2 - Clean your worksite in stages

As a builder you’ve probably got a process from project inception to completion. Each step leads to the next and that’s how you deliver finished homes and renovation projects without wasting time.

If each step of your build creates a specific type of waste it’s helpful to have a rubbish removal team clear your site in stages. For example, your first stage may generate piles of broken bricks and concrete as you demolish unneeded walls.

The next stage may leave a pile of gyprock that needs to be moved before the following stage, which leaves tiles strewn across your site as you focus on the kitchen or bathroom.

Rubbish removal services make sure your worksite is clean after each stage, which speeds up the construction process from start to finish and makes your job easier.

#3 - Clear your site faster

Speed will always be a major consideration on your worksite.

The longer it takes to complete clean-up and site maintenance, the less time you’ll have to focus on your project.

It’s also true that time is money, so if you or your contractors are left standing on-site wondering how to remove the growing pile of concrete or debris, you’re throwing money down the drain.

Rubbish removal provides the same-day clean when you need it. Unlike a skip bin that only fills up as fast as you load waste into it (or assign your apprentice to fill it), rubbish removal provides the labour and an on-site truck to clear waste and leave your site spotless.

It’s fast, reliable and extremely effective.

#4 - Protect your health and safety

The job of loading construction waste into an on-site skip or to the local tip is one that comes with risk. When you’re responsible for your construction site you can’t afford to have shards of glass or rusted nails causing injuries to your team.

Work injury claims in the Australian construction industry cost an average of $20,000 per person – or $29 million per year.

Cuts, slips and trips are all high on the list of contributing factors, all of which are more likely when it’s your job to clear your site of dangerous materials.

Hiring rubbish removalists for your construction waste eliminates your need to handle dangerous material, while freeing up your time to focus on the bigger picture. All dangerous waste is manually removed while you stay on track.

#5 - Stay on the right side of the law

Whether you’re a site foreman, or leading a small team of contractors on a local Western Sydney build site, your legal requirements don’t change. Lawful disposal of construction and demolition waste in NSW is covered by the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.

Rubbish removalists ensure your waste is disposed of lawfully and ethically.

When there’s the risk of a $5 million fine for illegally dumping waste, hiring your own rubbish removal team offers priceless peace of mind.

It’s worth pointing out the majority of Western Sydney builders and tradesman don’t set out to intentionally dispose of rubbish incorrectly, but if you’re throwing waste in a skip or getting your team to clear the site at the end of the day, it’s easy for something to slip through the cracks and end up in the wrong place.

With your rubbish removalists on the job, every item of construction waste will be disposed of correctly, saving you from the risk of legal trouble.
