- Plan and Estimate How Much Materials Will be Needed
Planning ahead is helpful. Estimating the amount of material you will need can help prevent extra material from being wasted, and saves money at the same time.
Instead of throwing all leftover materials in a dumpster, consider recycling. Having recycling bins on-site allows for the dumpster to not be overfilled. Keep in mind not everything is recyclable and be aware of what is and isn’t. Some items that may be recycled include: plastics, cardboard and metal.
- Reuse Items That Are Still in Good Condition
Lots of good materials are thrown away and wasted on a construction site. Take some time and evaluate all material. Instead of going out and buying brand new see if any items can be reused, this also helps save money.
