Demolition-debis Chute


Does anyone know of a reasonable priced demo chute? I only work residential so I don't need one of those monster chutes, just a small, short one.
Or mayby someone has built one in the past and wouldn't mind sharing their ideas .......

thanks ........

You looking for one for the second floor? We used to have them when I did commercial work. For a cheap one I would just make one out of 2x4s and plywood. Cheap and easy. You could even make it so you use threaded rods and nuts to bolt it together so you can take it apart and reuse it on other sites.

Works like a charm.

Get a few trash cans, cut the bottoms out and chain them together. Now you got yourself a cheap flexible chute. This is basically what a trash chute is anyway.

edit* You could probably get some used plastic drums at a local surplus store, and add eye-bolts to chain them together.

Or you could buy a $42 18" sonotube and be done with it.

That's just incentive to get done quickly. It actually did rain on us that day and she help up with no problems believe it or not. It was a waxed tube.

Re: Demolition-debis Chute


why don't you just lift the dumpster up to the window? Just like when I change a light bulb I hold on to the bulb while someone spins the light.

Re: Demolition-debis Chute


old empty 5 gallon paint buckets work just as well, pop some screw through em when you space em apart to make it longer with less buckets

I'd second the plastic trash cans for cheap $10 a piece..cut out the bottoms and chain em. They last forever and cheaper than those expensive orange professional chutes that fold flat.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. How long was your sono tube? I will need a 10 footer at least either 18" or 24".

I'm doing a demo job so my debris will be plaster and lath.
