What is Builders Waste Comprised Of?
The make-up of a builder’s waste varies. It originates from several building activities, from demolition to renovation and construction. Some of the common materials are:
- Cement, concrete, and bricks are heavy and bulky components that could come in large volumes depending on the activity taking place. These would need to be scooped by machinery like a loader into a waiting truck to remove them.
- Builders always tend to remove wood from a break-down activity before doing any serious machine demolition. This is because wood normally has value and can be sold or reused again in new projects. Wood comes in a variety of forms, like plywood, timber beams, pallets, and other wood-based materials.
- Being hardy, metal often keeps its form during demolition, and can be reused or sold. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals along with copper pipes and reinforcing are salvaged and separated from the rest of the builder’s waste.
- Plastics of different forms are also to be found as a material used in building. These can be in the form of pipes, cables, floor coverings, and insulation.
- Ceiling board and drywalling should be not contaminated with other builder’s waste from the beginning of the demolition process to be able to reuse or recycle it effectively.
- Roof coverings come in various forms. Tiles, shingles, and metal roofing all are used in the building process and are normally the first to be disassembled.
- Glass is hard to preserve when it comes to demolition, due to its fragile nature, but it is important to try and keep it away from contaminating the rest of the builder's rubble.
- Lastly, and probably the most harmful are hazardous materials like paint, oil, chemicals, asbestos, and adhesives. These are of no use to anyone going forward and must be dealt with in a specific, careful way.
Disposal of Builders Waste
One of the essential things to do when creating builder’s waste is to separate at source. This helps later with the responsible disposal of the materials.
Junk removal companies that do builder’s waste removal will partner with local recycling facilities that accept C&D waste. There will be more than one facility that can process the various recyclable materials. It is important to salvage and reuse materials that are in good condition. This reduces the demand for new materials and minimizes waste too.
Concrete, bricks, and cement can be crushed and reused, while wood may be recycled into mulch, used for biomass energy, or processed into reclaimed wood for reuse. Treated or painted wood may need special handling due to potential contaminants.
Glass, metal, and plastic can all be recycled successfully. Drywall can be recycled to recover gypsum, which can be used in the manufacturing of new drywall or as a soil amendment. Asphalt shingles can be recycled into asphalt pavements. Metal roofing and tiles can be recycled at metal recycling facilities.
