Renovations can be an exciting yet difficult time. One major issue is the responsible and convenient disposal of renovation waste. A lot of different waste can be produced, and it’s important to know exactly how everything should be disposed of.
What kind of waste is produced?
Common renovation waste includes:
What Can I Do?
The first thing to consider is whether anything can be reused, whether in your own home, or by others. Perhaps you have no more use for a mirror, an appliance, or another piece of furniture, but there are many people who do.
There are many donation centers dedicated to find a new place for household appliances and furniture. Even places like Goodwill and Value Village will accept furniture and appliances.
If you are planning to donate or sell any items, make sure to treat them with care during the renovation!
2. Call In The Professionals!
This is probably the most convenient solution when it comes to waste management. You can use your usual garbage collection service, which will often have options when it comes to large amounts of waste.
There are also private companies who specialize in waste removal. If you’re going this route, it’s important to call around and get as many quotes as possible in order to find out which is the more cost-effective option.

Almost all renovation waste is recyclable. However you choose to get rid of your waste, go the responsible route by making sure everything is sorted properly and then recycled.
Here are some ways renovation waste can be recycled:
- Wood is ground into chips and used for biomass energy.
- Paper and cardboard go to pulp mills.
- Scrap metal is sent to scrap metal dealers, who then find ways to recycle it.
- Concrete goes to clean fill.
- Plastic is recycled.
During a renovation, it’s your duty to make sure waste is disposed of safely and responsibly. Gorilla Bins is here to make it that much easier for you!
