These are better than small waste skips for small amounts of waste, as you can buy them and avoid the hire charges. Pile them to the designated fill-height, and then order a waste pick-up contractor to drive the segregated waste away to a suitable construction waste transfer station. This should provide the easiest method for residents to manage their construction waste.

Any company or individual who does not deal responsibly with the construction waste according to the regulations may be caught and  fined heavily. For residents to observe the regulations about construction waste disposal is essential so that the urban construction waste management can be successful, and the city's environmental sanitation can be ensured.

Container capacities range from 8 to 20 m³ and each type of container has a different transport price. Load height upon loading must not exceed the height of sidewalls, installation of additional extensions is not allowed. Each load must be prepared so it can be transported safely, and each container only filled to the allocated depth.

Waste Pre-sorting On-site

Materials may be sorted into a number of containers provided by service companies that specialize in management of specific types of waste at the jobsite. Generally the least number of containers is desirable both to keep container volumes high to reduce transportation trips and costs, and to keep the jobsite clear of obstructions.

Containers containing construction and demolition waste are collected and transported to diversion facilities via truck. Light and medium duty trucks are most commonly used for this purpose in the US and Canada. Trucks and containers of various types are mated to allow for maneuverability and modular interoperability.

Identification of loads on arrival at construction and demolition debris diversion facilities is an important step in ensuring materials are appropriately handled. Facility management plans typically describe materials that can be accepted. Loads which contain materials that are not accepted may be turned away, in which case the materials likely will be disposed in a sanitary landfill. via www.wbdg.org
