Construction site clearance Professional construction site clearance services are paramount to building processes because it is important to keep our communities clean and adapt an environmentally-friendly way of building and living. Unfortunately, many people feel the need to illegally dump their building waste on governmental lands. This has absolutely catastrophic results on our environment, and here are three reasons why:

Asbestos

Asbestos can be found in a lot of the construction material that we use in building housing and commercial spaces. This includes tiling, drywalling, roofing, fireproofing and fire prevention materials, ductwork connectors, plastics, and vinyl products. Asbestos can also be found in brake pads, clutches, hood liners, gaskets and valves. When any of these products are illegally dumped and not broken down and disposed of properly, very harmful chemicals are released into the air. Inhaling the fibers that are released from asbestos can cause numerous diseases and respiratory dysfunction, such as: lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma and pleural thickening. 

Glass

Illegally dumping glass on government property can lead to serious injury. Scavenging around illegal dumpsites can leave people severely injured, with emphasis placed on animals and children who do not have the ability to perform adequate first aid on themselves. Being cut my waste glass can lead to unnecessary pain, serious infections and lifelong scars. Wound infection can lead to life threatening sepsis complication which can lead to septic shock, organ failure and in the worst case scenario, death.

Flammable material

Flammable material, along with other hazardous waste products such as corrosive agents and poisons, is a seriously dangerous component to dispose of illegally. Flammable building material has the potential to combust under heat and compression circumstances, which could have devastating effects on surrounding communities. Remember, flammable material includes wood, so even natural products need to be disposed of in a way that is friendly towards the environment and healthy for all those around you.

Legal and effective construction site clearance is easy to find, and should be used by all builders and contractors in order to keep our environment as clean and safe as possible.
