Construction projects create bulky, non-compactible wastes like cardboard, sheetrock, wood, and other materials, that can be easily managed and hauled away in high-capacity roll off containers. Roll off containers can be hand-fed thanks to their large 7-foot rear doors, and will also accommodate forklifts for depositing extremely bulky or heavy materials.
Contractors with project-specific approaches to managing construction waste, including diversion, turn to County Waste & Recycling professionals for their experience, service capacity, and their single point of contact to coordinate the safe and timely removal of materials at their job sites.
To help manage the economic viability of diverting construction waste from disposal on the job site, County Waste & Recycling understands that contractors strive to balance:
- Placing containers close to workforce and for maneuverability
- Keeping dumpster volumes high to minimize transportation costs
- Eliminating the contamination of material-specific containers
- Having the fewest number of dumpsters for specific types of materials

Roll Off Safety
For the safety of everyone, please follow these roll off safety guidelines:
- Roll off containers cannot be placed under power lines.
- Only place acceptable materials in the container and load it evenly.
- Do not load materials beyond the container weight limits.
- Do not load materials above the height of the “FILL LINE”
- Do not place any liquid, toxic, flammable or hazardous materials in the container.
- Keep children away from roll off containers.
- Keep everyone away when the roll off is being delivered or picked up.
County Waste and Recycling offers several types of high-capacity compactors that are engineered to be left on customer premises and can be hand-fed, chute-fed or hopper-fed.
Commercial waste collection customers with high-volume, low-density waste materials – such as the wet waste of grocery stores and hotels – are often best served by self-contained compactors. Stationary compactors are applicable for high-volume waste materials. Depending on the materials, two to three times as much waste can be handled with a compactor system, thus reducing the frequency of commercial waste collections.
County Waste and Recycling is proud to be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) waste management company. The LEED green building certification program is the national standard for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.
Each LEED project that we participate in is meticulously tracked and documented ensuring that all reusable and recyclable materials are properly sorted and diverted from the landfill.
Interested in hearing how our LEED Program works?
- Incoming truck with loaded container is weighed at scale house.
- Container is photographed by the driver (displays container #).
- Container is transported to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) building and contents photographed prior to sorting.
- Material is then sorted into individual piles based on content i.e.; wood, cardboard, metal, plastic, trash debris, etc.
- Photographs of each pile of sorted debris are taken to show contents.
- Material is loaded onto a bucket loader and weighed individually.
- Once weighed material is placed into individual containers on site and hauled to destination.
