How to Dispose of Construction Waste

How to Dispose of Construction Waste

If you’re working on a construction site, a large home remodeling project, or anything else that may produce a lot of debris, standard-sized trash receptacles most likely will not be enough to clean up the mess. To make sure you can manage construction debris removal completely and efficiently, you’re going to need a roll-off dumpster.

Construction debris disposal is a large project on its own, but ASAP Site Services has the tools to make it as seamless as possible. We have relationships with thousands of local providers around the United States and Canada, allowing us to guarantee fast, reliable customer service no matter where you are. If there’s a construction project in need of a dumpster, there is an ASAP partner ready to help get the job done.

Construction Waste Removal

The most effective way to remove construction waste from your site is in a roll-off dumpster. Roll-off dumpsters are open-top dumpsters that are specially designed to be loaded onto roll-off trucks. This streamlines the construction debris disposal process, meaning you can spend more time on your project and less time wondering what you’ll be doing with all that debris. A few examples of common types of construction waste are roofing materials, landscaping debris, and demolition waste.

Roll-off dumpsters are made in different sizes to accommodate different job sizes. They measure anywhere from 10 to 40 yards and also range from one- to 10-ton capacity. Depending on the project, our dumpsters can hold either clean materials (clean concrete, clean dirt, brick, etc.) or standard debris. If you’re unsure what kind of dumpster you need to get for your job, our experts can walk you through it to make sure you’re disposing of your waste properly.

Roll-Off Dumpster Delivery

To ensure a smooth drop-off and pick up for your construction debris disposal bin, find an accessible, flat piece of land large enough to fit your specific dumpster size. To protect the underlying surfaces from damage, place a sheet of plywood underneath the dumpster—also, be sure to avoid placing it on top of any sprinkler systems.

When it is time for a hauler to pick up your dumpster, just remember to keep it accessible, and make sure the contents don’t extend beyond the height of the bin. Failure to follow these protocols can lead to dry run fees.

You most likely do not need a permit to place a roll-off dumpster on private property, but you may need one for use on public property. Contact your local municipal authority for more information on the protocol in your area.

Junk Removal Services

Another option for construction debris trash pickup is our junk removal service. Junk removal is great when dealing with things like extremely bulk or unusual items, or if you have too much waste to dispose of in a trash bin but not enough to need a roll-off dumpster.

Waste removal for smaller residential projects can be tricky, but our junk removal experts will help guide you along the way. There are different procedures for junk removal services depending on what you need to have hauled away. If you decide to go this route, we’ll send a representative to your site for an evaluation and give you a custom price estimate—just give us at least a day’s notice.


Of course, there is always the option of dumping construction waste yourself. If you do choose to take care of your own construction garbage disposal, make sure to call your local landfills ahead of time to get their guidelines on dates and times the public is able to dispose of construction materials.
