Our current plan is to burn the lath this winter, bury the plaster at the bottom of the hill in the backyard and dispose of the rest. We've spent a lot of time pulling nails and sifting thru the mixed demo waste on the floor and we stopped generating more waste until we figured out how to dispose of it.
Also, we haven't covered the hallway floor yet. I think we've got everything figured out now and we just have to figure out how to get the materials we need. I really miss having a vehicle that could haul a piece of 4'x8' material. Sigh.
That's a bummer. We've been burning all our scrap wood and wood demo. In the past we have been able to take our plaster and drywall to the landfill for 75 dollars for a level truck bed full. I hate demo.ReplyDelete
I would be delighted to pay $75 to dump a truckload. I haven't found a place that will take it (yet). I may keep looking.Delete
Good grief! You can't just get a dumpster? How frustrating.ReplyDelete
Well there are contractors around here that manage to dispose of it, but they don't appear to accept that kind of waste from residential homeowers. I'm at a loss as to why.Delete
Try a bagster https://www.thebagster.com/, they are available at Lowes or Home Depot. You can also order them online. They are more expensive then dumpsters, but they are less picky about what is inside of them.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much, I hadn't heard of them. Looks like it would be $119 to have it picked up. Pretty tempting for the plaster.Delete
That's so crazy! Did they give a reason? I've disposed of 1000s of pounds of plaster and lath from all my 1st floor ceilings and a couple walls that were bad. I just put it in contractor bags or trash cans and put it all out on the tree lawn (filled the whole tree lawn several times over) and the garbage men pick it up. Never had a problem. I can throw anything out and they will take it.ReplyDelete
Because they are worried someone might dispose of asbestos.Delete
