Benefits for Builders
Builders benefit from the Earthcare Recycling System in a range of areas including:
- Cleaner & safer working sites – A cleaner site means a safer site.
- More site cleans and visits. Earthcare Recycling provides up to 15 site visits for a 2 storey house, providing an unparallel service, keeping their sites the most presentable to home owners and safer as well.
- Complete site clean and bin system – Earthcare Recycling is able to provide a complete site clean and waste removal system providing both bobcat/truck and bins, hence providing one point of call for supervisors.
- Smaller house sites – Most building sites are small and getting smaller – having smaller bins delivered as they are needed leaves more space onsite than one large bin.
- Protects the surrounding area – Litter and rubbish from building sites is not entering surrounding bushland areas and/or properties.
- Improved professional look to the industry and customers – Clients will notice the cleaner site and the professional recycling system
- Improved delivery of materials – Smaller bins strategically located leads to more room to place delivered materials.
- Clearly defined call down schedule – Ties in with the progress of construction making it easier to determine when bins need to be changed/emptied.
- Landfill costs increasing – in early 2010, fees for landfill went up 300% – this will only continue to rise and is forcing builders to consider alternatives.
- Help recycle and reuse building waste – rather than send to landfill, up to 80% of all building material can be recycled.
- Coloured bin system – Earthcare Recycling provides individually coloured bins for each major trade for ease of use and understanding.
- Getting ahead of Government regulation – Currently WOOD, PLASTIC, and METAL are NOT allowed in landfills in Perth. This regulation is not being enforced as strongly as it will in the future.
- Training offered – Earthcare Recycling provides training service to builders to all suppliers and sub-contractors and also provides training services to the MBA.
