Recycling Dumpster Rental
At JRs Hauling and Dumpster Rental, we care about the environment and conserving landfill space, so we encourage renting separate dumpsters for concrete recycling and metal recycling. We will then take care of hauling the recycling dumpster rental unit to the appropriate recycling facility. Please tell us ahead of time if your project involves disposing of any of these concrete or metal.
Keeping these materials separate and not mixed in with other debris allows for concrete recycling and metal recycling. If you toss everything into one dumpster, we cannot recycle.
Concrete Recycling is possible when the project involves replacing a patio, sidewalk, or driveway. Concrete recycling has many benefits. Used concrete is put through a crushing machine that breaks down the concrete. Crushing facilities only accept uncontaminated concrete, which must be free of trash, wood, paper, and other related materials. Metals, such as rebar, are accepted since they can easily be removed with a magnet.
Broken down, recycled concrete can be used in many different ways. Smaller pieces can be used as gravel for new construction projects. Recycled concrete can also be used as the dry aggregate for brand new concrete if it is uncontaminated. Larger pieces of concrete can be used as riprap revetments, which are effective and also a very popular method of controlling streambank erosion. With proper quality control at the crushing facility, recycled concrete can be used, if aesthetically pleasing, as a substitute for landscaping stone or mulch.
Metal recycling is not just for your aluminum cans. The more frequently recycled metals are Scrap Metal, Iron (ISS), Lead, Aluminum, Copper, Stainless Steel, and Zinc. There are two main categories of metals: Ferrous and Non-Ferrous. Metals that contain iron are known as Ferrous and metals without iron are Non-Ferrous. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), metal recycling is very beneficial to the environment.
A few benefits of metal recycling, especially as it applies to using recycled metals in construction and manufacturing:
– 75% savings in energy
– 90% savings in raw materials used
