As we step into the summer season, construction activities are kicking into high gear. At Jordan Disposal, we understand the challenges that construction companies face when it comes to managing waste effectively. That’s why we are sharing some valuable tips on how to minimize waste on your construction site this summer.
Plan and Forecast Accurately
One of the best ways to reduce waste is to avoid creating it in the first place. Accurate planning and forecasting can help you order only the exact amount of materials needed, reducing the chances of excess that ends up in the waste stream.
Store Materials Properly
Improper storage of materials can lead to damage and subsequently, waste. Ensure that all materials are stored according to manufacturer guidelines. Protect them from the elements, especially summer rains, to prevent spoilage.
Reuse and Recycle
Construction projects often generate waste that can be reused or recycled. For instance, concrete, asphalt, metals, and wood can be recycled, while salvaged building components like doors and windows can be reused in other projects. At Jordan Disposal, we accept a wide range of materials at our sorting and recycling station, making it easier for you to manage construction waste.
Train Your Crew
Educate your crew on the importance of waste management. Make sure they know the difference between various types of waste and how to dispose of them properly. This not only minimizes waste but also ensures compliance with environmental regulations.
Choose the Right Dumpster Size
One common mistake is choosing a dumpster that’s too small or too large for your needs. An overloaded dumpster leads to extra charges and potential hazards, while an underused one means inefficient use of resources. At Jordan Disposal, we offer a range of dumpster sizes to fit different project needs.
