Construction and demolition waste has been estimated to account for over 40 percent of what ends up being thrown in landfills. Of this percentage, more than two thirds is mostly comprised of bricks and concretes. Construction waste removal becomes essential in order to maintain a clean, healthy environment.
Housing construction obviously leads to tons of leftovers. This is so especially if an existing house is getting demolished. Whereas some serious waste management plans often get expected for tenders involving big commercial and industrial projects, equivalent care fails to apply for residential buildings.
As per now, it is relatively cheap and easy to get rid off general construction junk in landfills. However, this is expected to change dramatically in the coming future. Increasing the cost of production and regulations that require assessments on the lifecycle assessments will likely make residential building waste to be seriously considered.
Some builders, especially those who have a focus on efficiency and sustainability, put more effort in ensuring that materials get recycled and reused. They do this by training subcontractors on ways to categorize and separate the junk on site before it is disposed of. This ensures that junk goes in the appropriate place.
Various measures can be employed by builders to minimize amount of junk that is produced in the first stage. Suppliers also have a role to play to ensure this is achieved. The suppliers can supply the goods at a last minute to help in reducing amount of packaging needed and chances of breakage or spoiling.
Builders may also train subcontractors to employ offcuts in some parts of the house in order to cut down on amount of leftovers. One amazing argument that has been made regarding prefabricated housing is that the waste produced during building is minimal.
Recycling construction junk will not only be keeping the planet green, but also provide an opportunity where you can save more. Recycling and reselling will absolutely provide positive environmental and economic consequences.
