Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling
Recycling and reusing construction and demolition (C&D) materials has become a huge part of waste management in recent decades. C & D materials have been identified and historically recognized as one of the largest components of the solid waste stream in the United States. Our desire to make an impact in this area has played a major role in TKG Environmental Services establishing our own independent recycling center. Servicing clients all across Northeast Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin, we are able to provide C&D recycling at our dedicated facility scheduled to open in Fall, 2017 in Waukegan, IL.
Dumpster rental is one of the three key parts of our business. We are committed to finding appropriate recycling avenues for over 75% of the construction and demolition waste that we take in through our Waukegan dumpster rental operations. There is a broad range of materials that are accepted for the C&D recycling process, including:
- Brick, Concrete, and other masonry materials
- Roofing Shingles
- Wall Coverings
- Plumbing fixtures
- Plastics and/or Cardboard
Once properly sorted, much of the common construction and demolition waste materials can be re-purposed into other construction-related products. C&D recycling provides two key benefits to our local and the broader global community. First, proper recycling saves limited and expensive landfill space for materials that have no known recyclable purpose. Second, recycling reduces the need to extract raw materials from the environment.
When your construction and demolition waste is brought in to TKG Environmental Services Group, you can rest assured that as much of your material as can be rerouted from a landfill will be sent to our recycling center instead. However, please note that certain materials will NOT be accepted at our facility due to their harmful nature. Unacceptable items include but are not limited to:
- Any Hazardous Waste
- Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
- Medical Waste
- Animal Waste or Parts
- Paint or Paint Cans
- Fluorescent Light bulbs
- Mattresses and Box Springs
As the leading local specialist in C&D recycling, we are equipped with innovative tools and processes for the careful selection of recyclable materials, as well as a safe disposal of the remainder- typically below 25%!
We are proud members of the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), which promotes and defends the environmentally sound recycling of the more than 325 million tons of recoverable construction and demolition materials that are generated in the United States on an annual basis. These materials include aggregates such as concrete, asphalt, asphalt shingles, gypsum wallboard, wood, and metals.
The CDRA represents a diverse group of member companies and agencies from the many C&D materials recycling disciplines and industry specialties active in the United States and other countries. We are honored to be part of a worthy cause that maintains a green planet.
