Residential or commercial Demolition Services:
- Garage demolition – attached garages, unattached garages, pole barns
- Home demolition – demolish and remove an entire house
- Building demolition – demolishing, salvaging and removal of nearly any residential building
- Light commercial demolition – dismantling, recycling and removal of 1 – 2 story commercial buildings
- Swimming pool demolition – inground swimming pool removal and fill-in
- Structural demolition – home, garage, building
What is the process for demolition of a commercial building, house, garage, shed, or barn?
- Request an estimate or estimates from licensed and insured Orange Park demolition contractors. Demolishing a home, garage, or commercial building is not a simple project and requires the expertise of a professional demolition contractor to guide the process. During the estimate site visit, interview the contractor for qualifications, references, EPA certifications, and the process the demolition contractor would follow to knock down and remove the building.
- Apply for demolition permits and approval from local government authorities. Depending on your location, demolition permits may be required by the city, county, and/ or state. Your local municipality may also have regulations related to notifications, noise, hours of demolition, disposal of the debris, etc… Your hired demolition company should be well informed about local regulations and will often pull the permits on your behalf.
- Utilities need to be properly disconnected. Utility companies for gas, water, and electricity need to be contacted. All utilities need to be properly disconnected or terminated at the source prior to demolition. Again, coordinating this may be handled by your hired demolition company, but clarify upfront from the contractor all of the services that are provided.
- Older homes or buildings need to be inspected for hazardous materials like asbestos or lead paint prior to being demolished. If your home or building contains hazardous materials, proper procedures for abatement need to be followed. Your hired demolition contractor may offer this service or sub contract it to an environmental remediation specialist.
- Safely tear down the building. For one to three story structures like a shed, garage, or a home, demolition of the structure is usually achieved using large hydraulic equipment like cranes, excavators and/or bulldozers.
- Removal and disposal of demolition debris. Debris will be loaded onto trucks or into roll off dumpsters for hauling to recycling centers or landfills. Discuss the options of salvaging and recycling demolition materials with your hired demolition contractor.

Used Oil Recycling: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), well over 200 million gallons of used motor oil are dumped into the environment by do-it-yourself oil changers, most of whom have not stopped to consider the potential consequences of their actions.
Help build a better tomorrow today! Here’s how you can contribute:
- Drain your oil and transfer it into clean, preferably reusable, containers… like milk jugs.
- Never mix used oil with other substances. Doing so not only makes recycling more difficult, it can be dangerous as well.
- We accept up to 5 gallons per visit at the Rosemary Hill SWMF or any of the County’s ECCs (except Kingsley Lake).
Fluorescent Lamp Recycling (and other Mercury-containing devices): Elemental Mercury (Hg), while present in very small quantities in these items, is a neurotoxin that can readily contaminate and accumulate in our environment whenever these lamps and devices are improperly disposed of.
Types of Hg-containing lamps and devices currently accepted:
- Fluorescent lamps and bulbs
- Thermostats and switches
- Thermometers and manometers
- High intensity discharge (HID)
- Metal halide
- Mercury vapor
- Low pressure sodium vapor
- High pressure sodium vapor
Proper handling procedures are:
- Do not throw lamps in trash.
- Do not tape lamps together.
- Place waste lamps in the container in which the replacement tubes or bulbs arrived, when practical.
- Store in a safe place to prevent breakage.
- Place broken bulbs into a heavy plastic bag.
How to identify household hazardous chemicals:
- Corrosive – caustic – Can burn or destroy living tissue. Some examples include drain cleaners, oven cleaners, rug and upholstery cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners, and chlorine bleach.
- Flammable/ignitable – Can be easily set on fire. Items such as oil-based paints, lacquer, paint strippers, thinners, and other solvents are in this category.
- Toxic/poison – Capable of causing injury or death through ingestion, inhalation, or absorption. Some toxins can cause cancer, genetic mutations, or fetal harm. Examples include paint removal and thinner, oil-based paints, flea powders, and insect sprays.
- Explosive – Can detonate or explode through exposure to heat, impact, or pressure. Examples include aerosols and metal polishes.
- Reactive – May generate excess heat, noxious fumes, violent reactions, or explosions when mixed with some other substance, such as mixing ammonia and bleach.

Renting a dumpster in Orange Park, FL
How to keep the weight of your roll-off dumpster load at a minimum
Debris like dirt, concrete, and household junk can pack on the pounds in your dumpster very quickly. Dumpster companies generally include a certain amount of weight in each rental and then charge more if the dumpster is overweight. To avoid going over your weight allowance, here are two tips to minimize the total weight of your trash:
- Place a tarp over the dumpster when not in use, especially when it’s raining or snowing. Moisture can dampen debris and make it much heavier. You are responsible for this weight and could end up paying for it in the form of overage fees if you’re not careful.
- Reusable junk or debris, such as salvaged brick or still-working appliances, can be donated to local charities (e.g., Habitat for Humanity ReStores) or unloaded for free on Craigslist. This helps reduce the amount of weight in your dumpster.
Make sure you know the weight allowance for the particular dumpster you rented. Don’t overload the container or you will be susceptible to overage charges.
Is a necessary to obtain a dumpster permit from the city?
Typically, you need to obtain a dumpster permit in the event the container will be placed on the side of a city street or on the sidewalk.
When you have the dumpster placed on your private property, such as your driveway, usually no permit is necessary. To be sure you satisfy all of your city’s permitting requirements, discuss it with your dumpster service prior to delivery.
