Facility Demolition

Facility demolition involves much more than taking a wrecking ball to the structure and calling it a day. Because buildings are composed of a plethora of materials that may or may not be considered hazardous waste, any company seeking to demolish one or more of their buildings must ensure that they are complying with all relevant environmental regulations and safety precautions.

Facility Demolition
Construction and demolition waste

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, construction and demolition waste is a kind of solid waste. Although construction and demolition waste is categorized as one thing for the purpose of clarity, this debris can include all of the following:

  • Concrete
  • Asphalt
  • Bricks
  • Glass
  • Wood
  • Packaging
  • Rubble and other aggregates
  • Gypsum
  • Asphalt shingles
  • Metals
  • Plastic

The federal government does not regulate construction and demolition waste as strictly as some other kinds of waste. This waste is largely regulated by the individual states, which means that compliance regulations change from state to state.

C&D wastes of note

There are certain kinds of C&D waste that require special attention. If your building has been surveyed and asbestos, lead, mercury, or polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) caulking is found, these materials will need to be handled carefully. Depending on the concentration of these substances, they may be deemed hazardous waste and their disposal will need to follow RCRA regulations.

The cleanup process

Before any demolition begins, the facility may need to be decontaminated or otherwise inspected for potential hazards. Once all inspections are complete and protocols are known, structural tear down can commence. Following the demolition, debris are removed and remediation begins (if necessary).

Since your company is responsible for the waste it generates from cradle to grave, it is crucial to select a waste management company that you can trust to follow procedures and keep your business regulation compliant.
