Construction Debris can not be compacted by our trucks, therefore, it must be collected separately from regular garbage and recycling. Pierce County Refuse provides 20 to 40 cubic yard drop boxes for construction debris.
Construction Debris includes materials found at a construction site or remodel: clean wood, drywall, metals, cardboard, plywood, concrete, masonry and more.
You can either take construction debris directly to a disposal site or rent one of our drop box containers.
