In 2013, Americans generated about 254 million tons of trash, and that number has only grown in recent years. That waste all goes to landfills, where it contributes further to the world’s already excessive climate issues. A large percentage of this waste comes from construction projects and build sites. If you want to improve your construction project’s efficiency and help the environment at the same time, here are just a few ways to reduce the amount of waste you create while doing construction work.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Proper Waste Management
Some waste during construction is inevitable, and there’s almost no construction project out there that won’t create some sort of junk. Rather than ending up with more scrap material than you know what to do with, plan ahead and have a plan to get rid of junk when you do need to haul junk away.
Before you begin building, make sure that you have your dumpster rental on site. Plan ahead for junk removal and have a general idea of just how much you’ll need to be removing. By having your dumpster rental on site at the start of your project, you’ll know how much junk you’re allowing yourself to create, keeping you from wasting more material than you intend to.
