According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), construction waste has a significant and meaningful impact on the environment because of the chemicals and vehicle emissions regularly found at construction sites across the U.S. In fact, the EPA suggests that the US construction industry creates more than 25% of all non-industrial waste generation (approximately 160 million tons) each year.
At Charleston Wood Recycling, we work diligently to reduce the environmental impact of our construction and demolition services by providing construction waste recycling on every job we attend to. Here are a few quick facts about how construction waste recycling can have a positive impact:
- Compliance – The environmental and safety codes the government provides are very important, and a professional demolition company will be well-versed in the requirements that will make your demolition site compliant from start to finish.
- Safety – Additionally, a professional demolition company is going to offer improved safety measures by having skilled and trained workers, the proper equipment and gear, and the ability to remove any debris and waste in the proper manner.
- Efficiency – If you are looking at your demolition site and you already know you need heavy machinery, a professional demolition company will have you covered. You can achieve your demolition project more quickly and efficiently by using a professional team that already has the necessary tools and experience.
- Protection – While the goal of your project may be to tear something down, that doesn’t mean everything is part of the demolition process. It’s important to protect other structures on your site, as well as take proper environmental precautions to protect wildlife habitats in the area. A professional demolition company can take active steps to ensure your entire project site is protected.
