Waste Management Plan

What is a Waste Management Plan?

What is waste management?

The three components of waste management are:

Handling, Hauling and Disposal

1. Handling - Is the process of gathering and transporting the waste to the container.

For example, in construction projects, it takes approximately 2 � hours to gather and carry construction debris to a dumpster.

This figure varies based on the type of materials and the distance from the jobsite to the dumpster.

Clean-up services may charge a handling fee based on the square footage of the project. When calculating industrial, commercial and business waste management budgets, this cost is often times overlooked.


2. Hauling - The waste hauling company covers the cost of the transportation and disposal of the waste.

The cost of the service varies according to:

  • time - a daily or monthly container rental fee
  • weight - a per ton charge
  • volume - a cubic yard or "pull" charge
  • a combination of the three.


3. Disposal - Disposal is the fee charged by the landfills and recycling outlets to receive the waste.

They can charge by volume (cubic yard) or by weight (ton).

This costs depends on local landfill capacities and state/federal solid waste regulations.

A comprehensive waste management plan should include landfill and environmental (recycling) services.

Waste Management Costs

Average Costs

Residential builders pay an average of between $600 and $1,000 for waste removal and disposal for a single family dwelling.

Disposal costs vary with the type and volume of the debris , the on-site equipment used, and the local landfill and recycling outlet charges.
