When the home is being renovated, it is typical for debris to pile up in the backyard or the garage. The solution is junk removal through companies like Earthwise Hauling that will properly handle the construction debris including recycling.
When construction debris is not properly handled, and disposed of, it ends up in landfills as municipal solid waste overwhelming the municipal sanitation system. If disposed properly, construction debris has enormous potential for reuse. Once taken to the proper destination and processed correctly, construction debris can be recycled to replace those extracted from deposits to build new building components comparable to traditional materials.
Recycling is the process of using discarded materials so that they can be reintroduced to the production cycle. Recycling reduces consumption of raw materials, decreases the total amount of waste and creates employment for thousands of people. However, for recycling to be successful, it has to start with an efficient separation and collection system.
One of the most common materials that are recycled is steel that is composed of iron ore and coal. Steel can be endlessly transformed into new materials without any loss in quality. When steel is recycled, it reduces the consumption of electricity by 80% with lower environmental impact. It also minimizes the need to extract steel from raw materials.
Concrete is construction waste that can be recycled and reused to reduce construction costs. A special crusher is used to recycle hardened concrete and produce concrete aggregate. Tests show that concrete aggregate can create structural elements from 30 up to 40MPa through the use right technology.
The use of reclaimed wood is becoming popular as raw material for the panel industry. As long as wood is kept properly, it can be used in large structural parts or as slats in the manufacture of crates, pallets and supports for various purposes.
