Why You Need A Waste Container On Your Construction Site

If you're about to begin a new construction project, the first thing you need to do is have a waste collection bin delivered to your job site. You might not realize just how important a collection bin is. However, a collection bin is crucial to your job site for a multitude of reasons. Here are just four of them.

Avoid Construction Site Injuries

Whether you're building a home, apartment complex, or a commercial building, you're going to generate a lot of waste, including packaging, discarded wood pieces, and other building supply trash. If you don't have a collection bin on your site, that waste is going to be tossed on the ground, where it will create a trip and fall hazard for visitors to your site. The last thing you want is to have a building inspector trip and fall while inspecting your project, or the home-owner injure themselves while inspecting their new home. You can avoid those problems by having at least one roll-off bin delivered to your job site before construction begins.

Provided Clear Space for Deliveries

When you're on a strict building schedule, you need your deliveries to show up on time, every time. Unfortunately, if you've got a job site that's filled with construction debris that should be in a roll-off bin, those delivery trucks might not be able to deliver your supplies on time. You can ensure timely deliveries by providing clear space for the delivery trucks. The best way to do that is to ensure that your construction waste is deposited in the proper roll-off bins throughout the day.

Reduce Trespassing Traffic

When you have an active construction site, it's just a matter of time before trespassers start looking for things that they can steal. If you've got construction debris lying around, you're creating the perfect environment for inviting trespassers onto your job site. However, if you clean up at the end of each day, and toss your debris in the roll-off bins, trespassers will be less likely to come looking for things to steal. This is particularly true if there isn't anything for trespassers to rummage through. 

Prevent Pest Problems

When you're running a construction site, the last thing on your mind is pest problems. However, you should be thinking about pest infestations, especially if you don't have a roll-off bin on-site. Garbage and debris are the perfect invitation for all types of pests. Bugs and rats will make a beeline for food wrappers that might be left on the ground. Larger pests will make a beeline for debris that could be used for shelter. You can prevent pest problems on your construction site by renting a roll-off dumpster.
