Removing yard waste

We have moved into a house with a yard that has not been well maintained. There are all sorts of things stored in the garden, from old car bodies and parts through to bits of an old shed or garden bed that is still sitting in the middle of the yard. I am getting all of this rubbish removed because I want to plant a new beautiful garden and have a nice area for the kids to play in. This blog has some tips on how to make rubbish removal from an old yard as easy and stress free as possible.

How Much Will You Pay for Asbestos Removal?

by Bill Clark

Have you discovered that your residence or commercial building has materials that contain asbestos? The first step you should take is to contact a licensed asbestos removal expert, but after this, you may start to worry. How much will you pay for asbestos removal? Will the expenses take the remodelling or renovation project over the projected budget? While these are some honest concerns, the need to remove asbestos properly should outweigh the thought of cutting corners to get rid of the material by yourself.

Why you pay more

Usually, the asbestos removal cost in Australia is usually higher than the standard rates for construction and remodelling. However, there are excellent reasons for this higher price:

  1. The professionals who handle the task of removing materials that contain asbestos put their health at risk. Due to this, they need to take precautions to ensure the job is done safely.
  2. The experts have been trained and are experienced in handling asbestos materials. What's more, they pay to acquire a government licence, which can be quite expensive.
  3. The companies that handle asbestos removal need to pay to educate and train their employees, since they are the ones who will be handling the dangerous materials.
  4. The experts take on the obligation to clean up the entire job site to make sure there isn't any lingering debris or dust that could endanger people who work or live within the building. This kind of liability is tremendous and requires strict adherence to safety guidelines.
  5. It takes more time to pack and dispose of the harmful material compared to disposing of non-asbestos materials.

Since you now understand why the asbestos removal price tag is often higher compared to the other standard construction rates, what should you expect to pay for the service? A combination of several factors will determine the overall cost. You cannot get the actual cost until the experts visit the property to evaluate the job and analyse what they need to do to handle the removal problem.

The area you live in is another factor that may affect the price. You could pay more if the demand for the service in your area is high. If there are many companies that offer this service in your area, the cost could be less.

What's the size of the area that needs to be worked on? The larger the area, the more challenging it will be to remove and dispose of the unwanted materials. Don't just rely on the online quote you get to hire a company; the final price will be given once the experts visit the site.
