Green Waste Disposal for West Vancouver
Every house owner in West Vancouver deals with green waste and at some point the call to a Junk Removal company in Vancouver has to be made. Our junk removal company can haul away the following types of green waste for you:
What is green waste disposal pricing based on?
There are few factors that determine the disposal fees our company charges for green waste. In general, fees are based on weight of the green waste and labour.
Weight is a major factor in determining the green waste fees. For example firewood can be as much as 3-4 times heavier than other green waste such as grass or branches. When we take your green waste to the Transfer Station for recycling, a disposal fee is paid by us based on the weight of material we leave there.
Labour is even more important factor when hauling away green waste. In some cases, clients don’t have easy access to their green waste. Taking green waste 20-30 yards to the junk removal truck can add as much as 2 extra hours of labour. Often, extra disposal fees have to be added for green waste that has to be put in paper bags. Most green waste is easy to carry, but some waste needs to be in paper bags before it can be carried efficiently.
In all other cases, the green waste fees are based on volume.
Does our company recycle?
West Vancouver has very strict law regarding recycling. We recycle everything that is recyclable in West Vancouver. At the North Shore Transfer Station the city has inspectors watching every single truck. If our company disposes anything that is recyclable in the general junk pile, we are issued a big fine. Therefore, even if we did not care about the environment, we still cannot throw away recyclable materials. The following rubbish is mandatory for recycling in West Vancouver:
Any wood that is not treated and it does not have nails in it
Construction waste disposal
In most cases construction waste is different from the other general garbage in few characteristics.
Weight is one of those characteristics. For example bathroom tiles are 3 to 4 times heavier than regular household rubbish. Since fees at the North Shore Transfer Station are based on weight, our rates have to be based on weight as well. Also your construction waste could be difficult to load onto our truck. In some cases, clients have bathroom tiles broken into small pieces in a big pile. If you have tiles that are broken, please place them in strong plastic bags or containers that are not heavier than 50lb. If you need the containers, we will keep them for you. One way to avoid extra fees is to make our job less difficult. Often contractors don’t care about their clients future troubles with the rubbish they leave behind. Therefore, try reminding them to follow few rules when they are done with the construction materials. Ask them to create different rubbish piles for metal, dry wall, tiles, wood and cardboard. This will not require any extra labor on their behalf, but it will save you tons of money.
The type of construction waste is the other characteristic that determines removal rates. Dry wall is recycled in West Vancouver. Our company cannot simply dump the drywall with the rest of the garbage. West Vancouver has stiff fines for these types of actions. North Shore Transfer Station treats dry wall differently also when disposal fees are concerned. The disposal rates for dry wall is double what the other junk is charged. Therefore, if a client has all dry wall, he/she should expect double the disposal fees on our side. North Shore Transfer Station will make an exception for rubbish that has less than 2 sheets of dry wall. Then they will not charge us double and treat the dry wall as a regular garbage. Therefore, if you have 2 sheets or less of dry wall, we will not charge you extra.
North Shore transfer Station does not accept concrete, stone and bricks. However, if you have small quantities, our company can get rid of it for you. Our West Vancouver Junk Removal company likes to deal with such materials in quantities less than 1-2 cubic yards.
