How to Lower Costs While Reducing Construction Waste

June 15, 2017

Reducing Construction Waste Is a Great Way to Save Money and the Environment

 

 

Every year the U.S. adds hundreds of millions of tons of construction waste to its landfills even though roughly 80% of that waste is recyclable. It isn’t difficult to see how this would have an impact on both the environment, and your ability to keep down your building project’s waste management costs.

 

So how can you reduce construction waste in order to limit the impact on the environment and your wallet? Here are a few tips.

 

How Recycling and Waste Management Will Keep Down Construction Costs

 

Recycling is a key part of the waste reduction process in two ways. First, by recycling as much waste as possible or donating salvage materials in the event of a remodel, you eliminate your landfill fees, acquire tax breaks, possibly make back money through the sale of recycled materials, and take steps toward acquiring LEED certification. At the same time, you can use recycled materials in building your home to further reduce the side of your environmental footprint.

 

At the same time, there are a variety of tactics you can use to make your construction site less wasteful:

 

·       Design with dimensions that draw from standard materials sizes to reduce the need to cut to size.

·       Try to avoid over-ordering materials.

·       Go through suppliers who reduce unnecessary packaging for their materials.
