The trend of waste management diversion (reduction, recycling, and reuse of waste) is growing exponentially as construction businesses realise not only that their reputations depend on their environmental custodianship but also that effective waste management actually makes a substantial contribution to their bottom line.
EnviroServ, with more than four decades’ experiences in waste management, is helping businesses create value through the return of wastes to manufacturing processes, promoting and seeking out opportunities for incorporation of recycled materials into products, and prioritising reduction of building related wastes through efficient job site practices. We believe that minimisation of waste and reuse of materials are essential aspects of design and construction activity, more so, as green building regulations are increasingly stringent.
However, local practices in the management and disposal of construction and demolition wastes are often shaped by the availability of suitable disposal sites, availability of markets for recycling and reuse, transportation options, and the capabilities of local workforces and construction businesses to adapt long-standing processes for the management of waste.
Added to this complexity are the many different types of waste materials that need management.
Other factors to be taken into account, when choosing a waste management strategy include the fact that, as energy prices increase, construction and demolition waste will be more widely recognised as a recoverable resource.
Choosing the best waste management options among diverse alternatives can be difficult for individual construction organisations. EnviroServ offers an invaluable service in both an advisory capacity and as an outsourcing option.
