Construction Recycling

During the construction process the contractor collected all waste in a dumpster at the site. The recycling company picked up the dumpster and brought it to their site. Here the dumpster was weighed and the recycling company's employees picked thru and sorted out all material to be recycled as cardboard, drywall, metal, clean fill, shingles, and wood. This material was then placed into specific containers and sent to an outside market. 86% of the waste was recycled thru this process. This means only 14% of all of the construction waste went into the landfill.
