The failure to recycle properly has severe environmental consequences. The extraction of raw materials frequently results in the deterioration of soil quality, deforestation, destruction of biodiversity, and frequent population displacement.
Additionally, the incineration and landfilling of waste materials has been shown to cause hazardous environmental conditions, which disproportionately harm the politically weak, contributing to environmental injustice, by allowing toxic substances to leak into local water supplies.
As a result, we need to implement efficient ways to increase recycling, especially of the construction and the demolition wastes.
Why is improper recycling of C&D a problem?
While, there are advantages to recycling C&D, doing so also generates issues that have the opposite impact. An example in point is the extraction, production, and subsequent disposal of concrete and other goods, made using Portland cement.
This excessive reliance on a product that causes so much pollution, produced from raw materials for every new construction project, has many effects. Financially speaking, the quantity of recyclable materials that can be close to new construction sites, may assist in lowering the consumption of concrete and other resources.
By doing this, the expenses associated with disposing of those products, and with mining the raw resources used to make them are also avoided.
What Steps to increase recycling of Construction and demolition waste?
We can raise the percentage of recycled C&D material in a number of ways.
The first and most crucial instrument is effective planning. You can make sure that you have the necessary containers on site, and ready to take suitably separated materials from the very beginning of your project, by maintaining good communication with C&D recycling providers.
Recycling is a simple process, and by preventing the mixing of recyclable items, you will have established an environment that will make recycling as simple as possible.
S?econdly, implementing more careful building design is another modification that can make a big difference. Buildings that are simple to disassemble allow for more efficient whole-material reuse or recycling, at the end of their useful lives. Additionally, this procedure makes it simpler to adapt the structure to new uses.
Finally, it's crucial to make sure you're working with a trustworthy recycling business. Even if you strictly adhere to the guidelines provided by your recycling firm, you can only ensure that they will recycle your materials appropriately, if you are certain that they are doing it in accordance with the rules and guidelines, established by your state or local government.
