Debris Removal From Construction Sites

You may be surprised at how much debris is generated when remodeling a room adding an addition to your home, or when converting a garage or attic into a living space. Most likely, you planned out your project to the last detail. However, debris removal is often not included in homeowners’ plans. You are responsible for disposing of construction debris since your household garbage collection service will not remove it.

Donate Reusable Materials

You may not realize that what you think of as junk is very useful to someone else. Donations of building materials are welcome by many organizations. Materials that can be reused include:

  • Good condition of doors, mirrors, and windows
  • Plumbing fixtures such as sinks
  • Appliances such as clothes washers and dryers
  • Cabinetry and countertops
  • Ceiling fans and light fixtures
  • Removable and still usable items


Construction debris accounts for one-third of all waste in the United States. If you live near a recycling center, metals, cardboard, wood, and other materials can be recycled. You can find a recycling center near you if you are concerned about the environmental impact of your project. You can find out what materials they accept and whether there are any fees. You can then plan to save recyclable materials as you progress with your project.

Rent a Dumpster to Remove Debris Easily

Renting a dumpster on-site is the standard practice for all non-recyclable or reusable debris. G.I Haul Dumpsters can deliver a dumpster to your project site as soon as 24 hours in advance.
