Are you doing a renovation, building a house or demolishing an old one? If you have been doing it a while, you will know that getting rid of drywall can be a real pain.
Drywall, made mostly of gypsum, recycled drywall board, and paper, is a banned or highly controlled substance at all transfer stations in the lower mainland. Most transfer stations do accept small quantities, but your load must be within the area that makes up 1-2 sheets. Drywall is largely recyclable, but regardless of who accepts it, it all ends up at a large processing facility in New Westminster, so trucking fees make up for the high cost to the consumer. For this reason, it’s not uncommon for haulers to charge a little more than when compared with other construction debris such as concrete, wood, metal etc.
Many drywall installers don’t handle the disposal of drywall as it is expensive to recycle and time consuming. This is where 604-TRASH-IT steps in. We are experts in drywall removal. Our home-builder clients use us religiously for all their drywall clean ups. The drywall is usually left on the ground in the middle of the room. We prefer this, as we can ensure it’s a clean load, keeping the costs down for the client.
For a new house, we are fast and efficient, starting from the top and working down, room-by-room. Depending on the size of the house, we usually take about 1-2 hours to void the site of drywall debris and complete the project with a full house sweep. When we leave, your site is ready for the next subcontractor. We will put our trucks as close as possible to the access, we will bring ramps, bins and all the labor to ensure we are on and off your site in the quickest and safest manner.
We have competitive drywall removal rates and remember, unlike our competition, our rates include 1-2 hours of labor to remove the drywall debris give the house a full sweep.
