Top tips for site clearances

Prior to the commencement of any new building or landscaping work on your premises, it is vital that the current site is cleared thoroughly and with safety uppermost in mind.

It’s important that you comply with all relevant health and safety legislation to ensure any waste is removed and transported with the utmost care to ensure disruption to the wider environment is kept to an absolute minimum.

Site clearance contractors must be thorough with the preparation of the chosen site and undertake risk assessment of the premises, also to make staff aware of all on-site dangers before commencing work.

Make personnel and visitors aware of ongoing work
Prior to any building work or clearance can begin, signs must be erected on-site to alert personnel and visitors of ongoing work. Anyone entering the clearance site must be reminded if there are any health and safety dangers present. Its recommended to enforce the wearing of hard hats on-site at all times and to keep a reserve of hats for any site visitors.

Some top tips:

  • Get advice on the best possible machinery to use
    In order to avoid wasting time and money, it’s a good idea to liaise with a local contractor to discover the most suitable machinery to clear your specific site. Certain machinery will be more effective than others depending on the materials that need disposing of, so it’s imperative that you have a discussion with someone who’s been there and done it before. Better still, if you’re not confident operating the machinery to clear your site safely and effectively, you can always hire experienced demolition contractors to undertake the task on your behalf.  These are site clearance experts who have the expertise and machinery to dismantle and strip out large areas for your business to utilise once again.
  • Consider the potential health and safety risks
    Always keep in mind that the area you’ve earmarked for clearance in order for future building or landscape work to take place must be free of any vegetation or construction materials before future work can be carried out.  If not, these materials could harm the wider environment and affect the way in which the land can be utilised.
  • Arrange for licensed transportation of scrap metals
    If your business is undergoing a site clearance to make way for new and improved premises, you’ll want to ensure that all the scrap metals derived from the demolition work are taken away safely and efficiently, with no harm to the wider environment.  Whether it’s old RSJs, old cabling, iron, scrap stainless steel or aluminium left within the shell of your property, Reclamet can swiftly remove it from your site and transport it to its licensed site for recycling or reuse.  However, do bear in mind that you’ll need to correctly categorise the items that need disposing.

For first class assistance in the transportation of scrap cars and metal, Reclamet is licensed to clear your business premises of waste and recyclable materials.

Brought my car in to be scrapped and was offered a fair price, much more than i expected to get for my mini. The owner of the business - Stuart was very helpful along with the girls in the office and the weighbridge. Would happily recommend to friends and family.

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
