Construction materials account for a significant amount of waste, and unfortunately, much of it ends up in landfills. Construction and demolition (C&D) generated 44 per cent of the nation’s waste in 2018-19, according to the National Waste Report 2020. That’s an increase of 61 per cent from 2006-07.
While construction waste removal can prove to be quite a challenge, there are ways to effectively manage your waste. You can dispose of construction waste using environmentally friendly disposal solutions if you plan ahead for the best waste disposal practices.
Consider Donating Or Selling Useful Items
You may have a lot of items you can reuse during the construction process, such as countertops, cabinets, and so on. These items can be donated to charities so they can be resold at reduced prices to people who cannot afford new products.
If you have any expensive materials, such as granite countertops, you might prefer to sell them instead. Some homeowners will simply use these materials elsewhere in the house. A recycled kitchen countertop could be used to resurface the bathroom counters, for example.
Maximise Project Efficiencies by Minimising Waste
Reduce waste at the source by planning projects carefully. You will spend less money and end up with fewer waste materials if you accurately estimate how much timber, glass, metal, and other components your project will require.
Your company should also select vendors that provide recycled and recyclable materials, and otherwise support your efforts to manage waste responsibly as a way to make your materials use and waste management practices more sustainable.
You Can Take The Waste To Landfill And Recycling Centres Yourself
