Construction debris is a by-product of construction of residential and commercial buildings, face-lift or remedial works of old or dilapidated structures, and highway projects. These waste products do not necessarily accrue by the process of construction only. Before building a new structure, some operations such as leveling and excavation must take place. Hence, the debris is an obligatory exercise that underpins the safety of workers and construction contractors. As a result clients are encouraged to integrate a cleanup process within construction projects.
There is a universal culture that government authorities seek to embed in a bid to conserve space and the environment due to the upsurge in greenhouse effects, ozone layer depletion, and climate change. These are the long-term effects of illicit dumping and inappropriate debris removal. For instance, people were fond of the burning of waste in an incinerator before they were ever authorized recycling processes. Research proves that it is a noxious practice that can be hazardous to humans. This is because when you engage in burning domestic items such as aerosol cans and plastic waste they release dangerous gases that deplete the ozone layer over time. Similarly, breathing in their by-products-such as furan and dioxin-can result in respiratory complications and cancer.
Commercial and industrial building projects are skyrocketing as a result of a booming Tech industry and increasing demand. This swayed the decision of developed countries, such as the United States, to institute the use of special landfills with liners and incinerators. This action was taken for the extermination of toxic construction and industrial debris. The mandatory aspect is that residents and manufacturers must obtain distinctive permits and evidence of disposal.
In Marin County, there is a waste management authority that regulates the dumping of both hazardous and non-hazardous materials. There are two classes of garbage, namely the inert and non-inert. Non-inert waste can undergo decomposition and recycling. Examples are linoleum, desert sand, cork, bioplastics, woods such as timber, mahogany, timber, and other types of traditional building materials. In contrast, the types that cannot be broken down are rubbles, bitumen, and plastics. These are otherwise referred to as non-biodegradable substances. These substances do not degrade into a different peripheral matter; hence, creating landfills that are brimming with waste. It destroys the purpose of the green energy policy and acts as an environmental nuisance.
It is essential to take note that Marin County frowns at the dumping of construction debris illicitly or inappropriately. Apart from this, the state of California has also enacted a law against illicit refuse dumping, imposing stern penalties on individuals who refuse to procure a permit or legal approval. Marin authorities do not take this law lightly because many residents are oblivious of the danger posed by illegal dumping. Some of them even shove the debris by the roadside, leaving the wind to scatter them off as litters.
