The Importance of Proper Waste Disposal in Construction



If you're running a construction site, waste management is an important part of doing business. You can't just leave your construction waste lying around if you don't want it to impede your progress and hurt the local atmosphere.

In this post, we're going to tell you just why waste removal services are so crucial for a construction project. If you're drowning in your own construction site waste, keep reading, and we'll tell you how we can help.


Legal Requirements

New construction companies might not be aware that they're required by law to properly dispose of waste. Each province has its own way of dealing with waste management. Here in BC, it's governed by the Environmental Waste Management Act.

You can find out what you're supposed to do directly on the BC government website. The other thing you can do is hire a qualified waste company that will understand these laws on a fundamental level. Doing it this way makes your life easier and guarantees you're always handling waste management the right way.


Health and Safety

The importance of waste management can't be understated with regard to the health and safety of your workers, as well as the general public. Whether you're talking about sharp objects, debris, or other hazardous materials, there are plenty of things that can go wrong with improper management.

Should anyone be injured as a direct result of your waste management ignorance, you'll be looking at lawsuits and workers' compensation cases. Implement good waste management practices, and you can rest easy knowing that injuries and accidents are low risk.


Sustainability

Good waste management practices help to lower the environmental impact of construction projects. At the top, we mentioned just how much of the global emissions the construction industry accounts for. The number won't come down without waste management.

At DBL Disposal Services, we're committed to the environment most of all. You should always look for waste management services that prioritize sustainability and environmental protection.


Cost Savings

Believe it or not, you can save money through waste management. Between landfill fees and transportation costs, excess waste can start to bog you down financially. A good company will help you reduce your waste and recycle more effectively at a reasonable cost.


Reputation Management

If you become known as a company with poor waste management, it's not good for your brand. Breaking the law will lead to consequences, but it's more difficult to come back from disregarding health and safety or sustainability.

It's not hard to clean up a construction site. With the right company doing it for you, you don't even have to think about it.


Start Taking Waste Management Seriously

It's clear why waste management is important. Construction companies simply can't operate without considering their waste management practices. If you're new to the industry or you're looking to improve your waste management, it's time to get the right help.
