Benefits of Commercial Scrap Metal Recycling for Contractors
As of Oct. 1, 2020, in an effort to divert Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste, Austin City Council set an ordinance stating at least 50 percent of construction project debris must be diverted from landfills, and a permittee or its agents may not dispose of more than 1.5 pounds of materials per square foot of the project. That number is projected to decrease to 0.5 pounds of material per square foot by 2030.
These measures are set in place to create a circular economy defined by taking, making and remaking of construction materials. So how can folks in the construction business make this policy work to their advantage?
