The Recycling Process - At KER Rent a Skip we take this crucial job seriously
Waste recycling of building debris has become a prevalent practise in the UK during recent years. It helps prevent the packing of landfills with construction rubble, and is turning limited resources into sustainable ones. The area of Wellingborough has various organizations who recycle building waste, including KER Rent a Skip.
According to the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the UK generates over 430 million tonnes of waste per year, and of this about 19 percent is produced by the construction and demolition industry. This does not include construction waste that is produced by homeowners who are renovating existing homes.
Benefits of Recycling Building Waste
Using a skip is an easy way to discard building waste. It's convenient, and once you've thrown your construction debris into the skip you can forget about it as the skip will be collected from your property.
Once the waste arrives at the skip owner's yard, one of the tasks that can be undertaken is the sorting of soil and rubble to remove material that can be used in aggregate. This can be reused in almost any type of building, from houses to commercial premises to roads.
The Waste and Resources Action Program (WRAP UK) list a number of benefits that arise from using recycled aggregate, including:
- Increasing employment opportunities
- Cutting the cost of aggregate
- Reducing the amount of transport required
- Conserving limited resources
