If you are planning on doing major restorations, there are many things that you may be considering for a greener project and to cut costs. Using reclaimed materials, which can come from concrete, wood, and landscaping waste, can be a great way to do this. There are some things that you may want to do to keep the restoration project clean and easily recycle your materials. Here are a few tips that can help you with your restoration project and reclaim materials that are removed in demolition work.

1. Clean Up Wood Materials And Store Them In A Dry Place

Wood may be one of the most reusable materials that you can get from your renovations. There are even businesses that sell reclaimed lumber as a business. When you are doing renovations, you will more than likely be removing a lot of scrap wood. This material may seem like trash on the surface, but often a little cleaning and storing it away in a dry place can give you materials for many different projects. The wood framing can be used for structural changes and other materials can be used for other wood working projects.

2. Organize Landscaping Waste To Reuse As Mulch And Ground Cover

Landscaping materials may be another issue that you have to deal with. There may be old plants and trees that you want to remove for your renovations and update your landscaping. Many of these materials can be chipped to give you material to use for ground cover. You can use containers to store these materials and the mulch that you make to use for ground cover in your landscaping design. Wood scraps that cannot be reused can also be cleaned and mixed with the landscaping waste to recycle it in a green way.

3. Keep Demolition Waste Organized And Ready For Reuse Or Hauling Off

Containers can be a great way to keep your renovations clean, which can be good if the project is for a house you are living in. You can have roll off containers delivered to keep waste and recycled materials organized. They can also be used for various different needs, such as storing materials like mulch and debris that you plan on reusing. Another benefit is that you can have them picked up and new ones delivered for some of the waste materials that you need to get taken to the landfill. Contact a dumpster rental service like Parks & Sons of Sun City, Inc. to learn about your options for waste disposal.

These are some tips that can help you keep your materials organized and reuse them. If you are ready to start a big renovation project, contact a roll off dumpster service to keep waste and reclaimed materials organized and your project clean.
