Almost all types of construction debris can be recycled:
If you want to dispose of construction waste materials on your own, you will need to check with your local facility to ensure they can accept it. Keep in mind that transporting might be difficult to handle on your own, especially if you have a large load of debris to haul.
If you're laying a foundation or building a wall, you may find yourself with copious amounts of unwanted concrete all over your property. Thankfully, there are a number of alternative methods of getting rid of concrete that does not involve taking up space in a landfill.
Here are some ways to handle old concrete:
Unused concrete slabs still have value. Before you toss them in a landfill, be sure to consider all of the alternative disposal options in your area.
Yes, it can!
When concrete is recycled it is crushed into smaller pieces and refined through several filtration processes. The refined product is used to create pavement, asphalt, building foundations, new concrete, mulch, wire, and oceanic reef habitats.
The proper way to dispose of wood depends on whether or not it is treated. If it is untreated, it may be collected with curbside pickup in some communities, taken to a recycling facility, sold as lumber, or reused. If the wood is pressure treated, varnished, painted, or finished in any way, it cannot be recycled. Instead, it should be reused as lumber or taken to a landfill.
Like concrete, bricks are often too heavy and bulky to be thrown into the regular trash heap. And when thrown out in large quantities, this non-biodegradable material takes up large amounts of valuable space in landfills.
Here is how you can responsibly dispose of your old bricks:
Bricks are one of the most sturdy, valuable resources for building large and small structures. If you can’t use them in your own DIY products, make sure to try to give them away to be reused before sending them to a landfill.
Drywall, also known as sheetrock, is one of the easiest construction materials to recycle or repurpose. If you can’t reuse, sell, or donate your old drywall, your next step should be recycling. Many cities do not accept drywall in their usual curbside recycling programs, however, you can call and find out if it is accepted on bulk pickup days or take it to a recycling center. If it is not accepted, it can be thrown in a landfill.
