Don't Let Your Basement Become Wasted Space

Why Your Next Construction Project Needs Shredding Services

Are you a contractor who does a lot of construction work? Have you recently hired a contractor to remodel your home? No matter who you are, if you're responsible for removing leftover construction debris from the site, here are some reasons to consider an industrial shredding service:

Smaller pieces: Construction debris is often large, unwieldy, and heavy. It can be difficult to dispose of, due to its odd shape and lopsided mass. Fortunately, there are industrial shredding services. You're probably already familiar with an ordinary office shredder and how it shreds documents into much smaller bits. An industrial shredder is much the same, only it handles things like pipes and drywall instead of paper or cardboard. These smaller pieces are easier to carry and discard. Removing a vinyl shower installation can be a job for several workers, but once that same shower has been shredded, a single worker can carry it where it needs to go in a wheelbarrow.

Lower dumpster fees: When you rent dumpsters to dispose of your construction waste, you are often charged both by weight and by the number of dumpsters. Since construction waste is typically very large and bulky, you may need several dumpsters to dispose of everything. Because the bulky construction waste doesn't compact well, these dumpsters may be filled mainly with air. By having shredding services reduce the size of the waste pieces, you'll be able to fit more trash into a single dumpster. Instead of partially filling three or four dumpsters, you may be able to reduce the number of dumpsters needed to just one or two by filling them more completely.

Easier recycling: A single piece of construction waste may be made up of multiple materials. It can be difficult and time consuming to manually remove all the recyclable parts, potentially resulting in a larger amount of waste. When shredding services demolish things that would otherwise simply get thrown away, it can be easier to remove the scrap iron, copper, rubber and recyclable plastics. If you have a local scrap yard that pays for these types of materials, being able to easily sort everything into their different components can mean that you get more money for your scrap. 

Using an industrial shredder can make your life easier in many ways. It can help to reduce labor costs and dump fees while potentially increasing the amount of money you receive at the recycling center. As a result, shredding services can partially or entirely pay for themselves. For more information, contact Document Demolition LLC or a similar company.

About Me

Don't Let Your Basement Become Wasted Space

My wife and I recently had a new home built, and while we had few stressful decisions to make, we greatly enjoyed the process and love our new home. Due to budget concerns, we decided to leave our basement unfinished at first. We figured that since we have so much "stuff" that we need to store, like off-season clothing and seasonal decorations, we would just use it for storage. However, we soon regretted not having it finished and felt like we had "wasted space" in our new house that wasn't being put to good use. We turned it into a "mini apartment" with its own entrance that we now rent out to a friend for a little extra income. I love sharing what we learned during the home building process, so I am excited to share our experiences and tips on our new blog! Come back for more construction tips!
