HOW TO MAKE DIRT FILL DISPOSAL EASY
Extra dirt fill can pose a problem if you are unable to find any place to dispose of it quickly. Erosion and grass kill can set in within a matter of weeks. The mound of dirt fill can become weed-ridden within a matter of weeks. This can also lead to insect infestations, defile the surroundings and endanger the health of the inhabitants in your home.
This will eventually lead to some problems and it is best to tackle the dirt fill disposal as soon as possible. Landscapers, architects and builders make use of dirt fill for various purposes. It is used in the foundations of homes and various other structures and in landscaping as well. If the entire project is being handled by a contractor, that company will also handle the dirt fill disposal.
THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR
In some cases, homeowners might remove the dirt fill themselves and this is when they call us. The method that is eventually used will depend on the amount of fill dirt that has to be removed and its location. Emco Disposal has years of experience with handling waste and clean fill disposal. The few things that will have to be taken into account are:
- Access whether it is really safe to clear out the fill dirt. For example, if you are removing the fill dirt from the crawl space under the house structure, it is best to call in a professional and ascertain whether it is safe to carry out the job yourself.
- Some homes are constructed on dirt fill and removing or shifting it can have a negative impact on the integrity of the structure.
- If the dirt fill has been used in landscaping, removing some of it might impact the angle of the slope of the walkway or yard and this can lead to runoff problems.
Once you have ascertained that it is safe to remove the dirt fill and have taken a decision to do so, give us a call. We will provide you with an estimate for the job. The cost of the clean fill disposal will depend on the type of equipment that will be used to remove the fill. There are times when the dirt has to be removed from hard-to-reach spaces like basements. In this case, specialized equipment might be required.
THE RIGHT ESTIMATES
The cost of the entire job will also be dependent on the number of professionals that will be required to handle the job and the number of bins that will be needed. We have containers of varying sizes and the ones we send out to you will be based on the amount of dirt fill that has to be disposed. The 14 yards containers are large and can accommodate a lot of fill, but the exact estimate will be provided before we carry out the job.
You can identify companies or building professionals who want the clean fill as they use it for landscaping as well as building projects.
