The Right Way to Get Rid of Concrete

Removing waste concrete is a difficult, but essential part of a demolition or construction project. As a fun fact, the Environmental Protection Agency found that nearly 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris were generated in the U.S. in 2018. It’s no wonder that concrete materials make up about 50% of landfills. Concrete and demolition materials decrease air space in landfills and can lead to higher disposal costs. If you have a project that involves getting rid of concrete, it’s crucial for both your budget and the environment to dispose of it properly and even consider some recycling options.

Recycling Your Concrete

Recycling concrete is actually easier than you might think. All you need is a trusty sledgehammer and some protective gear to break it down into smaller pieces safely. Once the concrete is nice and broken up, load up those broken concrete pieces into a truck or other vehicle to haul it away. Be careful not to overload the truck as it could damage the vehicle. 

You’re probably wondering where to haul the concrete. Well, it’s important to note that not all companies will accept concrete. That’s why you need to find a concrete dumpster near you. You can expect to pay around $20 per ton at most landfills, but you may also have to pay a “gate” fee to enter the landfill.

You also don’t have to waste time trying to find a concrete dumpster in your area. Instead, you can call in a reputable dumpster rental company for your concrete disposal. For example, the team at redbox+ Dumpsters of the Triad offers 30-yard containers that are suitable for construction or home renovation projects. These dumpsters can also hold wood, plaster, carpet, and flooring. Check with your local redbox+ Dumpsters to see if they allow concrete. We’ll take care of all the hauling. Plus, if you fill the dumpster before completing your project, our crew will take the dumpster, unload it, and return it the same day.

Why You Should Recycle Your Concrete

There are plenty of benefits to recycling concrete. It can help extend the life of landfills by reducing the amount of debris in them, and there is a high demand for quality concrete aggregates that are made from recycled concrete. Recycling concrete can also reduce disposal fees, especially when you do it with a dumpster rental company. Finally, you can even simply reuse the concrete in other places of your project to help lower material costs when you’re on a tight budget.
