To begin any recycling program, the first question that needs to be answered is, why recycle? Instead, WasteCap’s senior project manager and trainer, Ralph McCall, commonly hears why you should not recycle. “A common reaction we get when asking this question is that you should not recycle because it takes too much time, takes more people and costs too much,” he says.
WasteCap has demonstrated time and again that this is not the case. On-site recycling programs can work efficiently without taking extra time and labor while saving money for the contractor or owner. Also, as many in the construction world know, it is a necessary part of many certification programs, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program.
