We are always looking for ways to minimise the wastes that comes off our building sites, weather its recycling, up-cycling or just choosing products that come with minimal waste and packaging.
We only use companies that takes our rubbish and disposes of it responsibly, separating the different types of waste and making sure they end up going to the right place. We are also always trying to use products that come with minimal packaging and will have minimal waste to reduce what we have to throw away in the first place
So many construction sites have things going in the bin that just don't need to, this not only sends things to the tip that just don't need to go there, but it also means the clients are paying for skip fees they don't need to be. We always keep everything we can recycle seperate to make sure it goes to the right place, metals, bottles and even timber doesn't go to waste there it is amazing how little the amount rubbish that goes in the bin is if it is sorted properly
Another thing we are always trying to do is to find a use for the leftovers. There are lots of places that can use left over building materials for their own building projects. Schools and community groups are often looking bits and pieces for various projects and all it takes is putting the feelers out and you will often start finding people with great ideas for finding a home for what is coming off your building sites or even from demolition. We have even started making things ourselves out of the leftovers that come off our building sites to keep down our dumping costs like these Upcycled natural timber scratching posts.
We are always after new ways to make the most of what is coming off our building sites if you have any ideas weather its things to make or people that might have a use for building materials get in touch (CLICK HERE). The more creative the better
