What to Know Before Ordering Skip Bins for Selective Demolition

Selective demolition is a form of demolition that allows you to remove specific items and choose areas of the home to demolish. This is ideal if you have one room of the home that needs extreme repair, but you want to remove vintage fixtures or salvage before the demolition. With that in mind, you will want to have the right skip bin for the waste. Here are a few things you need to know before ordering the skip bins you will need.

Waste Type 

The first thing you need to know is the type of waste you will have from the selective demolition. The most common form will be renovation or construction waste. However, depending on the room you are working on, you may have other types of waste. In many cases, you can get skip bins for multiple forms of waste. These general use bins are available in many styles and generally mean that the waste management company will separate the waste at the dump site rather than having you separate it into different bins.

Restricted Waste

You may not realize that some waste removal companies restrict certain waste items. For example, you may not be able to use bins for mattresses or green waste. You may also be limited on the amount of certain wastes that can be removed by the skip bins you choose. This means that you will want to make a list of the waste you will be dealing with and check it against the restricted waste list given to you by  the waste removal site. If you don't know what they will restrict, check their website or contact them directly for an updated restrictions list.

Specialty Waste Removal

There are some forms of waste you may encounter during the selective demolition process that require professional or specialty removal. For example, you may have asbestos in the room or as part of the walls in the room. You will still need skip bins for the asbestos, but you will have to use special bins designed for this type of waste. If you have asbestos or other specialty waste from the selective demolition, contact your waste removal contractor and discuss the options before ordering.

These are just a few of the things you need to know before ordering skip bins for your selective demolition. If you know which options you need, contact your local waste removal service. They can help you with the delivery, pickup, and pricing questions you will have. They can also offer options that you may not have considered.
