Demolishing a site is often the first step in a new construction process, and it’s also one of the most expensive. A conventional demolition service can cost upwards of $20,000 for a large building, which is a lot of money to spend on just clearing the grounds.
Scrap metal clearing costs significantly less. Metal recycling centers disassemble and deconstruct your site, hauling off metals and other products for recycling. The materials we take come off your bill. It’s like getting an instant discount.
But that’s not the only reason you might want to consider scrap metal clearing for your next demo. Read on to get the full picture.
We Do All the Work for You
Razing a construction site is expensive, dangerous work. Between hydraulic excavators, wrecking balls and bulldozers, your average demo project requires a lot of specialized skill and equipment. You need the expertise of experienced demolition service experts who can safely raze a site without harming surrounding buildings or the workers themselves.
When you hire Gardner Metals for your next demolition project, you don’t have to worry about any of these things. We plan the demolition from start to finish, bringing all the necessary equipment and operating it ourselves. Our experienced team members do all the work, leaving the grounds completely cleared and ready for construction. All you have to do is sit back and watch.
It’s Less Expensive
There are lots of demolition services you can hire to do demo work on your behalf. So why would you choose a scrap metal clearing company? It’s all about your bottom line. Because we deconstruct buildings rather than landfilling all the waste, we pay you for the materials we take off the site for recycling.
That means everything we can use gets knocked off the price of your demolition. So it’s cheaper than conventional demolition services—plus less wasteful!
It’s Better for the Environment
Construction and demolition (C&D) waste is bulky and heavy, and it fills landfills fast. In fact, in 2015 the US generated 548 million tons of C&D debris, which was more than twice the amount of municipal waste.
When these reusable materials are thrown away, it means more nonrenewable resources must be mined, forested or harvested in their place. Additionally, the harmful chemicals present in many building materials may be washed into nearby waterways, which can hurt aquatic waterlife.
Basically, it’s a lot better for everyone if these materials find new lives by being recycled by a facility like ours. Steel beams, iron rebar, copper wires, HVAC equipment and appliances—we carry it all back to our center, clean and process it, and ship it off as new metal for fresh manufacturing.
