The method selected usually depends on the specific capabilities of the hauler used and the job location, as well as other factors specific to the particular construction project.

Site-separated recycling uses multiple boxes, one for each type of waste wood, metal, cardboard, etc.

On the other hand, site separation takes up more space at the job site and requires a high level of project supervision. It can also be difficult on high-rise projects, where the number of trash chutes may be limited. Commingled recycling uses one container for all waste.

The hauler sorts everything off site. This makes it easier for field staff to manage waste on the site. It is the best option on tight sites because it usually requires the least amount of storage space. However, commingled recycling is not available in all parts of the country.

In cases where facility labor costs are greater than field labor costs, commingled recycling may cost more than site-separated recycling. Hybrid recycling combines the site-separated and commingled methods—for example, one box for concrete, one box for cardboard, wood, and metal, and one box for general non-recyclable waste.

The case can be made that hybrid recycling represents the best of both worlds. It optimizes weight vs. The total number of boxes can be reduced by working in phases—for example, concrete and garbage during demolition, then miscellaneous and garbage in a later phase.

In general, it produces less work for sorting haulers, which could lead to lower hauling fees. For each project, the general contractor or construction manager must assess the project requirements and site location to determine the optimal waste recycling method to use.

Ask these questions to help make this determination: How many waste containers do you have room for? Five, or only two? What will be their location on site? Will you be using a trash chute? Is it a high-rise site? Will there be sufficient staff on site for the required supervision?

Construction and demolition waste continues to sharply increase in step with the economic growth of less developed countries. Though the construction industry is large, it is composed of small firms with individual waste management practices, often leading to the.

New Construction - Residential and Multifamily NYSERDA offers support to residential developers and builders for the construction and renovation of energy-efficient single-family homes, townhomes, low-rise multifamily buildings and high-rise multifamily buildings.

This approach gives the EU’s approach to waste management. waste. Dwelling units within low-rise multi-unit & multifamily buildings may earn the New York ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes designation and earn program incentives for every unit in the project through the Low-rise Residential New Construction Program.

Dwelling units of any size, style or price range can be designed and constructed to the standards required of a New York ENERGY STAR Certified Home.

Junk King provides an efficient, safe and eco-friendly construction waste disposal service so you don’t need to worry about the pick up or disposal of the debris after the project is complete.
