On construction sites and working areas, rubble is inevitably generated and needs to be disposed of as properly as possible. Ensuring this for every construction or demolition activity means avoiding serious damage to the environment, for the sake of proper nature conservation. Moreover, in order to encourage a conscientious attitude, there are specific regulations in force that provide for criminal sanctions and significant fines for anyone who does not comply with them.

So how can rubble disposal be done correctly? An important role is certainly played by the unloading of rubble in the building sector: in this in-depth article we will find out how, and by what means, this can be done in the best possible way.

Construction rubble: what is it?

Generally, construction waste from rubble and demolition is composed of inert material, such as plaster rubble, concrete or bricks. Because of their resistant nature, they are defined as special waste, i.e. they can be disposed of in dedicated landfills and not in ordinary municipal waste landfills. In landfills, there are processing installations that recycle these non-harmful materials.

The disposal of this waste is, by law, the responsibility of the producer and creator of the waste itself. It will therefore be the responsibility of a company when the works and the production of waste are carried out by a company, and of the owner of the property if he has carried out these works himself.

But how can these materials be safely transported to the landfill site? In practical terms, work materials and waste need to be moved in and out of the working environment, which often has limited access and confined spaces in houses and flats. It is essential for operators to clear the premises quickly and safely so that they can get on with the rest of their work unhindered by obstacles or obstructions.

How to load and transport rubble easily

To move rubble from the inside of a house to the external vehicles that will deposit it in the appropriate landfill, there are special machines with high performance characteristics. One of these is the loader: a small, fast and strong machine capable of moving bulky and heavy material without difficulty.

To transport rubble from one place to another, the best choice designed by Cormidi is the Cormidi C55 minidumper.

Unload building rubble with Cormidi: the C55

The C55 is the smallest motorised wheelbarrow in the professional series, with a transport capacity of 550kg. Its small size allows it to be extremely versatile for a variety of work situations: in particular, it can be used in tight spaces and through limited house doorways to complete construction work and to move rubble from one place to another.

Some of its advantages are:

–  Liftable skip capable of unloading material at height with the greatest of ease and which, thanks to the extremely robust hi-tip arm mechanism, reaches a height of 154 cm. The Cormidi skip is reinforced and has rounded corners so that any type of material can be unloaded, with a tipping angle of up to 79°.

–  The built-in fixed bucket allows the loading of rubble into the skip quickly and safely.

–  Rubber tracks and track support for smooth, unrestricted movement and incomparable stability. The operator’s balance is also provided by the shock-absorbing footboard, which ensures a pleasant ride with limited vibration.

These are just some of its advantages: to discover all of them, consult the data sheet and find out the details.

Conclusions

One of the many requirements that arise on a construction site is the need to transport and move rubble material quickly. For the unloading of rubble in construction, it is possible to take advantage of the robustness and versatility of minidumpers, motorised wheelbarrows that transport the material from inside to outside a house in a short time and with ease. For a safe passage inside houses, Cormidi has designed the C55 wheelbarrow model, whose innovations simplify and accompany the operator during the loading and unloading of rubble for an impeccable work result.
