Construction jobs and home renovations can be tricky, especially getting rid of excess and waste after you are finished with the project. Say you have extra concrete or concrete waste from a project. Knowing how to properly dispose of it can make a big difference in your cleanup. A roll off dumpster is a great way to get rid of construction materials, and even your excess concrete in some cases.
Dumpster Sizes and Weight Limits
When it comes to renting roll off dumpsters and filling them with the trash and debris that you have, there are weight limits that come with each different type of dumpster and each size of dumpster. Knowing the weight limits of your dumpster can make a big difference and can help you figure out what size dumpster you actually need.
Dumpsters that you can rent and get delivered to your home or your worksite come in a few different sizes. They come in 10, 15, 20, 30 and even 40 cubic yards. This means that you are going to be able to get rid of a ton of debris. The normal weight limit for these dumpsters is about 4,000 to 12,000 pounds depending on what size the dumpster is and local road restrictions.
The road restrictions where you live will help dictate how heavy dumpster trucks can be on the road. This means that even if you have a very large dumpster, you may be limited in how much you can actually put in it depending on the regulations for the area where you live.
Concrete Disposal and Recycling
If you are dealing with a lot of concrete waste, like more than what a dumpster can hold and more than what a dumpster truck can actually handle, you may want to think about concrete disposal and concrete recycling. There are a few different companies that will actually come and get your old concrete and recycle it. They will also dispose of it if you cannot get rid of it.
You can also try selling the old concrete if it is still usable, and you can also let people have it for free if you have usable pieces. Getting rid of concrete can be a struggle. Taking the time to find a viable option can make a big difference and can help keep concrete waste out of the dump and out of landfills.
