In the last 10 years, there has been an almost 100% increase in the total amount of recycling in the United States. Despite this impressive number, Americans still threw away over 160 million tons of garbage in 2009 alone.
In addition to recycling at home, it is important to practice good waste management on construction sites. Don’t just throw all of your materials into a dumpster bound for a landfill—make sure you have one dedicated to recycling. You’ll be helping the environment, as well as your bottom line. Just look at this infographic to see why recycling on any size construction site is essential. Share away with your friends and colleagues!
