Recycle of Construction Waste
Getting rid of construction waste has become a big issue with many builders. With disposal fees steadily rising in most of the country, some builders have begun viewing their debris as something to be managed rather than simply discarded. In fact, a realistic waste management strategy can provide both short-term and long-term payoffs.
In the short term, many builders realize that anything wasted on the job costs them twice: once when it's purchased, and again when it's hauled off for disposal. Of course, disposal is a relatively tiny portion of the construction budget--about one-half of one percent of the cost of the typical home. But with the average builder earning a 5 percent profit margin, even small gains can make a difference. In the long term, minimizing the waste you generate can enhance your standing among potential customers by giving you a reputation as someone who strives to protect the environment. And that can only be good for business.
