Water Quality District - Hazardous Waste
What is it?
Construction waste includes: building materials, packaging, and rubble resulting from construction, remodeling, and repair of buildings and roads. Demolition debris is waste resulting from the demolition of buildings, roads, and other human-made structures. It includes concrete, brick, wood, masonry, glass, rock, metal, and plastic building parts. It does not include asbestos waste. See Asbestos for disposal information on asbestos waste.
- Save: Before remodeling, remove and save usable items such as: doors, windows, and bathroom fixtures that can be reused.
- Donate: Donate your building materials to a charitable organization. You could receive a tax deduction, and would be helping someone else out. Check with Habitat for Humanity (549-8210) or Home Resource (541-8300) to see if they can use your materials.
- Give Away Ads: Contact the Missoulian, Missoula Independent, or Messenger to see if they are offering free "give-away" classified ads.
- By sorting your construction waste or demolition debris, you may be able to find recycling outlets for cardboard, concrete, scrap metal, wood, and other wastes.
- Waste Hauler: Call Republic to see if they will accept your building and demolition debris.
- For large jobs, you may want to arrange for a roll-off container to be dropped off at your location. Check with Republic (728-9572) for costs and arrangements.
