Here in Fresno, California, the mayor Jerry Dyer recently announced a three-year plan hoping to build 6,926 new affordable and 4,110 market-rate homes that will become available to the public. The plan, which will cost an estimated $260 million, is meant to help increase access to affordable housing for people living in Fresno and looking for a realistic path to home ownership. This investment strategy is also welcome news for the home construction and contracting companies in our City hoping to participate in this massive home-building program.
For construction and contracting companies, however, dealing with the construction and demolition (C&D) debris produced during home building can be a major headache. With the high demand for homes in the Fresno region, many companies probably don’t want to waste valuable time and labor getting rid of leftover scrap plywood, broken cinder blocks, and excess fiberglass insulation.
Whether you are a major contractor who builds hundreds of homes a year or are an individual homeowner who is undertaking a DIY remodel of your kitchen, Junk King in Fresno is here to help you deal with your C&D debris. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal company in Fresno and the surrounding region and offer both residential and commercial dumpster rentals to help people and businesses in Fresno deal with their construction debris in the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly way possible.
A Few Statistics on C&D Debris
If you have ever done a small DIY building project around your home or property, you probably have been surprised by the amount of leftover objects, scrap material, and junk items that accumulate throughout the building process. Construction and demolition debris is also generally heavier, bulkier, and harder to get rid of than other common sources of waste.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States generated an astounding 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris in 2018. That amount is more than double the total amount of generated municipal solid waste (MSW). Of those 600 million tons of C&D debris, demolition represents more than 90 percent of total C&D debris generation, while construction represents less than 10 percent.
On a national scale, the amount of construction and demolition debris is expected to continue to rise on a yearly basis. The combination of a growing population and an aging housing stock is one of the reasons why an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 homes are demolished each and every year in the United States while the projected number of single-family housing unit starts in 2023 is estimated to be over 1.2 million.
Another major issue with construction and demolition debris is the fact that a large amount of this bulky and heavy waste ends up in our already overcrowded landfills. Plywood and gypsum sheets, chunks of broken concrete, and old roofing materials, despite being recyclable, are often simply taken directly to the nearest dump. Fortunately, the C&D debris generated across the country generally has a much higher recycling rate than other sources of trash. According to one recent white paper, the amount of C&D debris generated and recycled in the United States is:
- 100 million tons mixed C&D with a 35 percent recycling rate,
- 310 million tons of bulk aggregate (primarily concrete) with an 85 percent recycling rate, and
- 70 million tons of reclaimed asphalt pavements with a 99 percent recycling rate.
Choosing to work with a reputable junk removal company with a proven environmental track record is one of the main factors determining whether your C&D debris ends up in the local landfill or in a recycling facility.
