Eco-Friendly Waste Removal Tips

In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to share some eco-friendly waste removal tips. If you have residential, construction, or commercial waste, there are ways you can dispose of your materials in an environmentally safe way and minimize the waste you send to landfills. Whether you’re interested in recycling or other green waste removal options, Circle J Roll-Offs offers eco-friendly waste removal and LEED-certified waste management.

Eco Friendly Dumpsters

Here are some tips to help you practice eco-friendly waste removal:

  • Follow the 5 Rs to reduce your environmental impact and lessen landfill trash. The Rs are: refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle.
  • Separate your waste. Separate your waste into recyclables, hazardous, and non-hazardous materials and then you can further categorize.
  • Take special care of hazardous waste. You may have hazardous materials from construction or industrial use. Household items are also hazardous, including electronics, paint, cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, motor oil, some batteries, thermometers, and petrol. Our roll-off dumpster services can handle and safely remove most hazardous waste.
  • Organize recycling. Group recyclable materials into categories such as cardboard and paper, glass and plastic, and cans. Do not include food waste, plastic bags, or liquids in your recycling.
  • Recycle what you can. Some construction materials that can be recycled include wood and lumber, drywall, metals, concrete and masonry, clay brick, and glass.
  • Compost. You can create your own compost with unwanted food and drinks. Also, reduce your food waste by eating leftovers and making sure to eat food before it spoils. According to the EPA, compostable food and yard waste makes up 25 percent of the garbage in a landfill so reducing your food waste – through composting or making use of leftovers – will go a long way toward reducing your environmental impact.
  • Hire a professional. We offer professional, eco-friendly waste removal services for recycling, trash, and hazardous materials.

Adding these strategies to your waste removal plan will help lessen your impact on the environment and keep our air, water, and Earth clean.

We offer LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified services and can help you practice eco-friendly waste removal by offering separate roll-off dumpsters for your needs, with a recycling dumpster as well as a trash dumpster. We can help you reduce construction waste and provide the best containers and waste removal options for your project. Construction debris such as asphalt shingles, concrete, brick, ceiling tiles, corrugated cardboard, glass, gypsum wallboard, metal, and some types of wood, are recyclable and can be separated and reused. We may recommend renting two roll-off dumpsters to sort LEED-qualifying recyclables from the trash. This is a way to earn LEED credits while helping the environment.
