Construction waste in many cases can be minimized or avoided, helping keep the environment clean and money in the pockets of the builders. Here are some tips to minimize waste by recycling:
- Building to standard dimensions helps save time, effort, and resources by not needing to adapt or cut materials to fit.
- Try reusing removable undamaged items instead of demolishing them, social housing projects or a front yard sale of items such as radiators, grates, piping, and appliances can help save money with tax advantages too!
- Locate your nearest recycling center and arrange trips throughout the construction stage to minimize environmental impact.
