3 Waste Reduction Tips for Your Construction Site
Running a construction site is a tricky task. There’s lots to think about, making sure you’re following health and safety standards and compliant with laws and regulations. Construction sites tend to produce a lot of waste which can be costly and time-consuming to deal with. By implementing a proper waste plan, you can ensure your site is cleared of waste quickly and you help limit your impact on the environment.
Here are 5 tips to help you reduce the amount of waste on your construction site.
Before a construction project begins, project managers should come up with a waste management plan. The right planning and organisation will mean that fewer mistakes are made which as a result means there are fewer materials wasted on site. A detailed plan should include:
- Consider potential waste
- Provide the site with recycling, compost and waste bins
- Calculate the right amount of material and only order what is required
- Identify recyclable materials
- Inform employees on how to sort waste
Choose Vendors Wisely
When choosing which vendor to go for, you need to find one that aligns with your goals and intentions. One that won’t slow you down and will be able to provide you with what you need. Vendors should also aim to reduce waste and be able to support your construction in a way that is sustainable. For example, being able to return unused materials or recycling excess materials on your behalf. Take your time to search for the right vendors and find ones that will benefit your company and help you reach your goals.
Deconstruction Instead Of Demolition
Instead of tearing down buildings in a destructive manner, when possible, you should aim to deconstruct them. This involves disassembling a building, piece by piece to preserve materials and reduce waste. These excess materials can be reused and transformed into valuable resources for future construction projects. Furthermore, if you donate the recovered materials, you can use it as a tax write-off.
