Recycling programs can be personalized to coordinate with the size of the construction job, the materials being disposed of and whether the job is looking to become LEED certified.
On site programs with separate dumpsters for each material are best to maximize the amount of material that is to be recycled and reduce contamination
Concrete loads - clean concrete can be taken to a local crusher to be reused. Crushed concrete is commonly used as a base for roads, parking lots, and driveways, as well as backfill material and shoulder stone.
Wood loads - clean wood can be taken to local wood recyclers to be recycled into mulch for landscaping or pulp for paper production and used beneficially as a fuel. Reusing and recycling wood reduces the need to cut down trees.
Ferrous and Non Ferrous Metal loads - metals can be taken to local scrap yards. These scrap yards will prepare the metals to be shipped to larger scrap yards or processing plants where the metals will be melted down to make new metals.
Cardboard loads - clean cardboard open tops or compactor containers can be taken to local recyclers where they will be sorted to remove contaminants and shipped to mills to be recycled.
Plastic loads - clean loads can be taken to local plastics recyclers where they are sorted and prepared. Not all plastics are recyclable. A site visit may be required to determine the recyclability.
Commingled loads of debris can be taken off-site for separation at a local MRF (Material Recovery Facility) to be sorted. Reports can be supplied for LEED compliance and certification.
