You can store materials efficiently
You can minimize damage to materials and reduce waste by minimising it. You can minimize damage to materials by storing timber under cover and on level blocks, as well as stacking bricks and other masonry. You won’t have to dispose off or buy more materials.
Reuse materials you already have
After removing the material has been removed, it is possible to reuse or repurpose the material. This will reduce the need for new material and reduce the amount of waste on the construction site. You can also reduce waste by carrying out repairs to damaged materials like pallets and reusing temporary fixtures around the site such as fencing.
To exchange reusable materials, you could also collaborate with nearby businesses or sites.
Keep an inventory
You can keep track of everything on your site by keeping an inventory and checking it frequently. This is more important than anything because you won’t order too many materials. It will cause waste to build up on your construction site.
Select the right partner
If you are looking to improve your waste management strategy, it is essential to find the right suppliers and specialists. You could ask them to ship your materials on returnable pallets so they can pick it up after they have made additional deliveries or when the project is finished. You could also ask them if they will buy back products that you don’t need.
Another option is to arrange staggered delivery to ensure your on-site storage does not get overwhelmed. Or, ask for full-audited reports about your waste streams to make sure your waste forecasts reflect current and relevant data.
