Adelaide has a number of clean fill dump sites, and if you have ever wondered if you could save a dollar or two on your garden waste, then read on for more information on clean fill dump sites and what they can do for you. Whether you are landscaping, installing a pool, constructing a retaining wall or really anything else in the yard, odds are you will have some top soil to move. This is where clean fill sites come into their element. Read on for how clean fill dump sites are your best bet when remodelling the backyard.
A clean fill dump site is a site that takes clean fill and recycles it to another site, clean fill being a specific material able to be reused. Usually topsoil. As long as the materials are clean of contaminates that may be harmful to humans or animals, or really just any nasty that might transfer to the new site, and contaminate that new site, can be reused; most likely on another construction where top soil is needed.
Most clean fill dump sites will accept building materials like top soil, brick, dirt, sand, gravel and in some cases even rubble. While some of these materials are naturally occurring, they do not interfere with the environment in the new site they end up at. The man made materials such as brick or concrete are broken down and reused in a number of different ways. Clean fill sites will charge for recycling these materials, but its significantly less than other places to purchase those materials.
If your site is a little bigger, ensuring cross contamination of waste doesn’t occur is a must. Some materials have specific requirements for recycling and if they are mixed in a clean load, you could risk contaminating the whole batch. Road base is a good example, whilst it can be recycled, it must be clean, so it’s a good idea to have these types of materials separate to your concrete, brick and top soil. Of course, you can also hire professionals like Stoney Pinch to do the hard work for you.
Construction waste has been a problem for a long time, and as we move to more environmentally conscious building sites, we see more and more use of clean fill dump sites to reduce the impact the construction industry has on the environment. Also, who doesn’t like saving a little money whilst doing something nice for the environment?
So if you are working on a construction site, and notice these materials going to waste, talk to your construction manager about options to recycle; and if you are at home, talk to your contractor about the responsible disposal of all the material they are taking from your yard.
