Reuse and recycling of C&D materials is one component of a larger practice called sustainable or green building construction. The efficient use of resources is a fundamental principle of green building construction. This means reducing, reusing, and recycling most if not all materials that remain after a construction or renovation project. Green building construction practices can include recovering lumber from the project, using aggregates reclaimed from crushed concrete, or grinding drywall scraps for use on site as a soil amendment.
At the end of a building’s life, demolition generates large amounts of materials that can be reused or recycled, principally wood, concrete and other types of masonry, and drywall. Rather than demolish an entire building, consider “deconstructing” all or part of the structure. Deconstruction is the dismantling of building components for reuse or recycling. In contrast to demolition, where buildings are knocked down and materials are either landfilled or recycled, deconstruction involves carefully taking apart portions of buildings or removing their contents with the primary goal of being reused.
We will track gross weights needed for LEED projects.
We can set separate containers to help you
segregate your loads and facilitate recycling.
Wherever possible we will segregate loads for
recycling purposes – wood, metal, concrete, etc.
