  • The Importance Of Recycling Construction Materials

    November 18, 2021

    There are many reasons to recycle your leftover construction materials. Such reasons include environmental sustainability, profitability, and compliance with governmental regulations, just to name a few. 

    A construction site will contain a lot of debris, and when construction projects end, this debris should be managed and taken care of. In fact, much of the debris and leftover materials can be recycled or reused for future projects or use. Not only does this help the environment, but it also helps the profitability and efficiency of your company.

    The manner of recycling materials from construction sites for reuse is called deconstruction. Deconstruction includes stripping buildings and job sites with great care and recovering the salvageable components which are left. In this article, we will be looking at the importance of recycling construction materials and why your company should do it!

    The Importance Of Recycling Construction Materials 

    Here at Lunas Inc, we recycle and reuse our construction materials. The importance of recycling has never been higher. Therefore, all businesses should be utilizing an easy way to help out our environment. Before companies started recycling, construction waste would typically be taken to landfills, but now we can reuse and recycle these materials, saving time, effort, and money.

    Environmental Benefits

    By recycling construction material, you save an abundant amount of energy by removing the need to consume natural resources. For example, if concrete and asphalt are recycled, the number of machines needed to produce and source new materials will decrease, therefore using less energy. In addition, landfills are filling up quickly. Therefore, an alternative is necessary. Recycling gives the materials a new purpose in the future, meaning they will not need to go to landfills.

    Regulatory Benefits

    While regulations vary depending on your local jurisdiction and ordinance, cleaning up your materials will always be a present factor. In addition, some rules require specific materials to be recycled or repurposed in some way or another. So, by recycling your construction materials, you can get ahead of whatever regulations may be present. 

    Financial Benefits

    Cost is a significant factor in the construction industry. Therefore, any way to reduce cost is ideal. By recycling the materials, you save disposal and transport costs as you will no longer need to visit the landfill. It will often be cheaper to process the material to be recycled than to dump it. Therefore, it should be adopted! The process of being ‘green’ has skyrocketed. Thus, if a company is eco-friendly, it will stand out from its competitors who do not adopt green techniques.

    How Lunas Inc Can Help

    At Lunas Inc, caring for the environment is one of our signature goals. As a result, we offer several recycling programs in the Southern Nevada area. 

    However, many facilities have difficulties figuring out the best possible way to properly dispose of their waste products. 

    With the Lunas Inc Recycling Program, we offer recycling possibilities to make that process simpler and more manageable. Managing waste is highly important to companies for two reasons. 

    The first reason is that tracking the amount of waste and recycled substances a company produces will make it more manageable to assess waste. 

    The second reason is that following waste product and recycling production allows companies to advertise their green initiatives to consumers and regulators. 

    And finally, managing and tracking waste enables companies to be more efficient and effective, both environmentally and economically.
