From simple strategies like utilising building rubble onsite as fill for instance, or reusing items from demolished buildings such as wooden window frames, by specifying materials with recycled content, and adopting strategies and building methods geared to dismantling and designed for deconstruction — design affects everything, and with careful planning and consideration given to waste and reusing materials at concept stage, much waste to landfill can be avoided.
An example of this is modular construction.
It is also very important at design stage to consider how the building is going to manage operational waste while the building is occupied — sufficient space will be required for recycling storage and sorting, as well as the access to various floors and of course for collection. At a waste management level, there are a number of best practices to ensure maximum recyclability of materials on site:.
Keep a monthly and overall project reports of all waste and at the conclusion of the project —confirm whether targets are being achieved. This is a significant achievement, and is replicable across all construction projects by implementing good waste management programmes.
Slum Development Using Zero Waste Concepts
Product and Material Suppliers suppliers have huge potential to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Packaging refers to anything that is not the actual material that will be used and left installed on site. During the course of a buildings life it will require multiple new light bulbs, new carpets and flooring, painting, filling, stripping, windows due to breakages etc. Good building managers and operators can make the necessary effort to separate materials.
The Green Star SA rating tools will reward designers for making provision for separation operations within the utilities area of the building, and building maintenance would utilise these facilities for its waste streams. It is important to have both the space designed to store and sort the waste for collection, but also to have waste management policies in place for the ongoing operation while the building is occupied.
As the market places a greater value on sustainability, products with recyclable content become more sought after. Masonry bricks made from crushed aggregates, tiles made from recycled plastics, are just two examples of products gaining traction. On the waste disposal side, costs are rising but it remains relatively cheap to dispose of construction waste to landfill, cheaper in fact than general waste disposal which costs R As costs increase so too does illegal dumping, which poses an environmental problem, and municipalities need to consider increasing the penalties imposed on transgressors and to find ways of policing illegal dumping more effectively.
Perhaps funds from increased charges for legal dumping can be directed in part to policing illegal dumping. The construction sector has a massive impact and a commensurate opportunity to effect positive and meaningful change.
