Construction Waste Solutions with Project-Specific Approaches are Highly Valuable

by Mason Whittaker Contructor

Construction waste is often reasonably clean, heterogeneous building material produced from various construction activities. It includes concrete, insulation and asbestos material, dredging, soil and stones, drywall, bricks, cement, wood, glass, concrete, plastic, ceramic, adhesives, and metallic waste. Construction waste materials are often inert and non-biodegradable and also bulky. It can be very difficult to haul off this kind of waste from a construction site. Moreover, the waste can pose a great danger to the environment if not managed properly. The highest priority should be given to address solid waste issues. Hazardous construction waste such as leftover paint and varnish, products containing mercury, adhesives, drums, and resins should be disposed of as per the regulations in force.

Construction waste removal does not necessarily mean dumping it at a landfill. This is considered the last option if other methods of construction waste disposal are not possible. Construction waste disposal is done with the help of equipment specifically designed to support heavy loads and avoid abrasions. Materials such as reinforcing bar and steel and items greater than 3 feet in dimension are usually picked before the sorting process. Sorting is done with the help of a chainbelt and sorting stations. Picked and sorted materials are deposited by specialised equipment and manual labour into industrial containers of various types.

Dealing with non-hazardous construction and demolition waste

Heavy interstate trucks are an integral part of any efficient construction waste disposal system. Landfilling is only performed by satisfying the regulations of the region or state. A landfill may not accept construction and demolition (C&D) waste if it is a hazardous or industrial or chemical waste. So, hazardous waste must be treated and disposed as per the regulations of the state. Mercury-containing C&D waste such as smoke detectors, security systems and elevator control panels must be isolated and taken to a mercury recycler or consolidation site. Mercury should never be removed from the items and always properly labelled before disposal.

Dealing with red hazardous waste

Lead-based paint and its debris are considered red hazardous waste, and need to be separated and stored in containers for disposal. Asbestos waste must be packaged adequately in leak-tight containers. It should be disposed of on a licensed disposal site. However, non-regulated asbestos can be disposed of in the landfills along with other demolition waste. Mercury and asbestos containing materials, explosives, pool chemicals, electronics and large appliances are usually not accepted at landfills. You should consult a waste disposal company that can dispose of these items in a safe and regulated way.

Contributing to environmental sustainability

Managing your waste will help you limit how much you generate and dispose of. Businesses that demonstrate that they are doing their part for environmental sustainability develop a positive reputation which can improve their relationships with customers and clients. 

With dumping sites currently overflowing everywhere in Australia, proper construction waste disposal and management is a key area of concern within the industry. Businesses need to look at reclamation opportunities, source reduction, and waste disposal more seriously than ever.
