No matter how big or small your construction project was, you are going to leave a lot of mess behind you. Whether it be trash, old furniture, old siding, or debris lying around – it’s going to happen and there’s going to be a lot of it. To properly manage and dispose of your waste, you should consider dumpster rentals with M&M Waste!
We have a large inventory of roll-off dumpsters of all sizes that make it easy for you and your team to conduct proper post-construction clean-up. No matter what size dumpster you need, M&M Waste has it! Post-construction clean-up isn’t as easy as it sounds. You can’t just throw all your trash and debris into it, bring it to the dump, unload it, and be on your merry way. There are certain steps and guidelines you must follow when doing your post-construction clean-up.
Not sure what the proper steps are for cleaning up your construction site? We created a step-by-step guide to help you ensure your mess is properly cleaned so you can get moving right into your next construction project!
The 3 steps of post-construction clean-up
1. Sort it out
Before you can bring your junk to the dump, you must sort out things that are recyclable and things you are salvaging. This is an extremely important step through the post-construction clean-up process that the team at M&M Waste really recommends you take your time with. For example, if you replaced the drywall in your basement and you have a lot of leftover gypsum (a soft sulfate mineral), you can repurpose that mineral as a fertilizer for a garden. Or, if you pulled out a lot of wooden beams that are in relatively good shape, you can use those for another project you may have. Everything you think is junk may have a second purpose – just take the time to find those items!
2. Clean the site
After you’ve gone through everything you plan to put in your M&M Waste rental dumpster, you should go through your entire construction site and make sure everything is perfectly cleaned. From removing all the garage to sweeping the floors, you’ll want to ensure the site is perfectly clean before sending your dumpster rental back. If you don’t have time to do this part of the process, you can always hire out for things like this – there is a company out there for everything!
3. Special remediation
This isn’t necessary for every construction site, but if your site has any contaminated waste or hazardous materials, it’s extremely important to make sure they are properly disposed of. If someone comes into contact with anything dangerous or toxic, it can cause a lot of problems in the future. To avoid this, please contact M&M Waste directly with any of your contaminated waste or hazardous materials disposal needs. Whether your site experienced a fire or mold, it’s important to get a specialist there as soon as possible to deal with the situation properly to ensure the health and cleanliness of your post-construction site.
