AYD Waste Services Touts Business From Austin’s Population Boom

At Your Disposal (AYD) Waste Services, an Austin, Texas, dumpster rental and construction recycling company, has recently signed contracts to supply recycling and hauling for the construction or remodel of several schools, housing developments and office buildings, and for a number of large-scale landscape projects.

For several years now, Austin, Texas, has been one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in America. The resulting economic and construction boom has kept At Your Disposal (AYD) Waste Services busy. In recent months, the Austin-based dumpster rental and construction recycling company signed new contracts to service a number of different building projects and businesses in the Austin area.

AYD will be supplying dumpsters and hauling debris during Balfour Beatty’s addition to Patton Elementary School in Austin, and for the remodel of Manor High School in the northeast Austin suburb of Manor. AYD is also partnering with Texas Roofing for the construction or remodeling of several other schools in the Austin area including Westwood High School, the Austin Community College Campus, and KIPP Austin Schools.

Another large Balfour Beatty project underway is the construction of the Independent, a 58-story luxury condo tower, and AYD has been contracted to assist with this project. Specifically, AYD is supplying 40-yard roll-off dumpsters for metal and demolition recycling, and 20-yard roll-off dumpsters for concrete and masonry work.

Additionally, AYD has been contracted to provide dumpsters and hauling services during Rand Construction’s building of a Blue Apron and a Chik-Fil-A restaurant, and remodels of several office buildings; Swinerton Builders’ LEED-certified construction of Amazon’s corporate headquarters in The Domain; and Pride Builders’ demolition and construction of a number of different home developments in metro Austin.

In terms of straight recycling, Endeavor Real Estate Group recently signed a 5-year contract with AYD for a new dual compactor for landfill and recycling. AYD will also be the new hauler and compactor services provider for The One American Center, Frost Building, and 300 West 6th.

AYD also rents roll-off dumpsters on a long-term basis for the collection and disposal of landscaping debris. In fact, AYD is now partnering with almost every major landscaping company in the Austin area, including Total Land Care, Complete Landscapes, Benchmark Landscapes and Sun Terra Landscape Services.

All of the new contracts has Chuck Herb, owner of AYD Waste Services, very happy. “Not only is it good for our business, it’s exciting to see all the economic growth in Austin,” he says. “We love watching our beloved city grow, and we pride ourselves on building strong relationships with contractors in the area while providing much-needed hauling and recycling services.”

At Your Disposal (AYD) Waste Services is currently providing waste management and construction recycling during the development of two new local apartment complexes. Targeted towards veterans, seniors and low income families, the two complexes will be working closely with the nearby Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic and key social service agencies in the area. The project is being conducted by the Austin Affordable Housing Corporation (AAHC) to provide more affordable housing options in the area. In order for potential residents to qualify, they must make 60% or less of the median area income, or $51,000 annually.

The two complexes, the Villages at Ben White and the Pointe at Ben White, will be located to the northwest of the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.  Once complete, there will be a combined 443 new apartment units available to local veterans and seniors. The garden-style apartments will be located in three-story buildings spread across a picturesque neighborhood community. Ground broke for the $37.6 million project in September, 2014, and is expected to be completed by December.

A LEED certified project, both the architectural design and the construction process of the Ben White apartments must follow strict guidelines to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum environmental sustainability. AYD Waste Services is certified by the US Green Building Council to meet LEED standards for construction waste recycling. For the apartment complex development, we are currently providing over 20 40-yard roll off dumpster rentals to recycle construction debris, with more being added to ensure proper recycling. This size dumpster is ideal for accommodating large amounts of typical construction debris, such as drywall, wood scraps, plastic, packing materials, etc.  All refuse that is recyclable will be hauled to appropriate recycling facilities for processing and properly documented.

We are proud to be a LEED certified company, qualified to supply waste management for LEED certified construction projects required to adhere to strict guidelines for green building as dictated by the city of Austin and the US Green Building Council. Our most recent LEED project is the construction of a new Home2 Suites hotel, by Hilton Worldwide.

Home2 Suites is the newest brand put forth by Hilton in nearly 20 years. Intended to be an affordable hotel with sustainability as their key focus, the Home2 Suites line of hotels has only be around for about six years, but has been growing steadily. As a LEED certified establishment, the hotels will have a variety of environmentally friendly practices, internal operations, appliances and amenities. This Home2 Suites hotel is being constructed under general contractor G2 Construction. AYD will be providing our hauling and recycling services for the newest Home2 Suites in Austin, located along Highway 183. The project will cost $5 million, and when complete will have 87 rooms.

Throughout the duration of the project, AYD will supply 30-yard roll-off dumpsters to collect waste material. Of this, we will be able to recycle approximately 98 percent of all construction debris. This includes materials such as drywall, sheetrock, cardboard, wood, aluminum and plastics. Austin is known for their green initiatives, and we’re seeing more green building practices gaining popularity throughout the area. Austin’s dedication to sustainability serves as an inspiration to other cities. AYD hopes to continue contributing to this environmentally responsible trend, participating in the Texas Environmental Quality Initiatives Program and local community beautification projects.

AYD Provides Hauling and Recycling for Green Water Redevelopment Project in Austin

AYD Provides Hauling and Recycling for Green Water Redevelopment Project in Austin

A massive redevelopment project is currently underway in an up-and-coming area of Austin, Texas. Complementing the newly constructed Austin Central Library and the redeveloped Seaholm Power Plant, the Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant will soon be a bustling mixed-use residential and business complex. AYD Waste will be providing roll-off dumpsters, hauling and recycling services for the redevelopment of the Block 23 segment of the Green Water project. Once completed, this will be a high-rise office complex over 500,000 square feet in size, and almost thirty stories tall.

This project is part of a drastic transformation currently underway in this area of Austin, Texas. What once was an area populated only by utilities and factories will now be an urban live-work-play development, a concept growing in popularity in cities throughout the country. Trammel Crow’s 1.7 million square-foot development will include an upscale high-rise apartment building, a variety of retail establishments, dining options and office buildings. Throughout the duration of the construction process, AYD will be providing 20 yard dumpsters for bulky refuse, such as concrete and metal, as well as 40 yard dumpsters for all other typical debris, such as drywall, wood scraps, packaging, plastics, etc. The development is projected to be completed by November, 2016.

AYD Waste serves residential, commercial and industrial projects throughout Austin, Texas, as well as the surrounding areas. We take pride in being a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified waste management company, meeting strict standards for green building practices laid out by the City of Austin Green Building Council. AYD will be hauling refuse and recyclables, taking it to appropriate recycling facilities whenever possible. Unbeknownst to many, over ninety percent of debris is recycled by AYD at a typical construction project. We are very proud to be a part of the redevelopment of the Thomas Co. Green Water Treatment Plant.

Recycling Construction Materials

Recycling Construction Materials

AYD Waste can typically recycle 98% of construction debris. Unfortunately, it isn’t general knowledge that the majority of construction materials can be recycled. During any major demolition, reconstruction, or new construction project, large amounts of refuse are inevitably generated. However, almost everything from packaging to large chunks of cement can be recycled and cycled back into the economy in a myriad of different shapes and forms, many of which are rather surprising! The green movement has been gaining awareness and support over the past fifty years, and as a result, we are constantly finding new ways to recycle almost anything! But just how is all this junk really used? We’ve come up with an interesting list of reclaimable construction materials and how they are used.

Recycle, go green, protect the world, At Your Disposal

Concrete:

Small fragments of concrete are ground down or crushed for a variety of different purposes. A layer of recycled concrete is laid down before asphalt is spread when making new roads. Often re-paved or improved roadways are made largely of the original concrete road they replace. When ground very finely, it can be used as dry aggregate for new concrete. Larger hunks of concrete are used as riprap, a highly effective method of erosion prevention along waterways.

Asphalt:

The most common use for old asphalt roads and roofing tiles is new asphalt. This is known as Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP). Recycled asphalt can be used to make warm-mix asphalt, which allows it to be mixed at much lower temperatures, resulting in reduced carbon emissions and energy usage.

Glass:

Did you know that glass is 100% recyclable, and can be recycled endlessly without compromising quality or purity? Furnace ready scrap glass is known as “cullet,” and is used to make new glass for a variety of industrial and consumer purposes. Additionally, scrap glass is used to make fiberglass, which has limitless usage options in and of itself.

Metal:

Most types of metals can be melted and recycled for use in new products. Iron and aluminum are often used to build structures, for automobile parts and aircrafts. New studies show reclaimed metal can be used to detoxify waste water. Recycled metal can be melted at a lower temperature than virgin metals, saving energy and cutting Co2 emissions. Recycled metal is used to make containers, consumer goods, tools, furniture, and more.

Plastics:

There is a vast array of types of plastics, almost all of which can be recycled and repurposed, reducing environmental impact. Plastics are most commonly recycled and formed back into food/beverage containers and packing, but there are endless other applications. Polymers can often be converted into petroleum, to be used for new polymer production, or as fuel. Heat compression allows different types of plastics to be melted down together, for more flexible usage. Plastic PET bottles are currently widely used to produce polyester fabrics, for durable, tough clothing, such as jackets, shoes, or handbags.

Carpeting:

Carpets have even more uses than most people realize; they can be broken down and made into new carpets, and more. At times they become carpet cushion, or plastic-wood composite material frequently used to make furniture such as park benches. Automobile parts frequently contain recycled carpet material. Additionally, it can be used for erosion control as mesh underlayment, sediment control and soil stabilization.

Other materials that can be recycled include insulation, rubber tires, rocks, dirt, sand and cardboard. Recycling is on the rise thanks to increased consumer and industrial awareness. Each year recycling keeps billions of pounds of waste out of landfills, and is continuing to increase and improve each and every day.

AYD is Excited to Provide Services to Three Upcoming Luxury Apartment Developments

AYDcommercialwastedumpster

At Your Disposal, Inc. is excited to be providing recycling and hauling services to three apartment communities being built just south of Austin. Two of these luxury complexes are under construction in Kyle, and the third is underway in Buda. All three communities will house more than 300 units.

The city of Kyle offers a small town feel while also providing easy access to larger Texas cities. It is strategically located close to major highways, airports and railways, making it a short trip away from Austin and San Antonio. The city also offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including four local parks, various biking and nature trails and a lake with fishing opportunities.

Skybeck Construction is the full service contractor and project management firm in charge of construction for both apartment communities being built in Kyle. Their portfolio includes everything from affordable housing to multi-million dollar developments. The company prides themselves on their high quality standards, skill and integrity. The two luxury complexes will be named, “Trails at Plum Creek” and “The Strand Apartments.” We are assisting in both projects by using our waste management expertise to ensure all debris is recycled and hauled correctly. We are providing two 40 yard dumpsters to the Trails at Plum Creek and one 40 yard dumpster to the Strand Apartments, with many more expected.

The unique city of Buda offers a wide array of experiences. They are home to many historic landmarks, such as their famous Severn Stagecoach House and Historic Stagecoach Park. They are also known for their downtown shopping district with everything from antique stores to modern boutiques. Make sure to stop by the Buda Soda Fountain for an old fashioned environment and a sweet treat. Some more conventional offerings include various recreational parks and trails, and a wide selection of delicious BBQ restaurants. Additionally, Buda is famous for their annual Buda Country Fair and Wiener Dog Races, which take place every April.

Journeyman Construction, Inc. is handling the construction in Buda for the “Carrington Oaks” community. Journeyman is a local Austin Company that holds an impressive portfolio of condominiums, higher education facilities, parks and recreation facilities, retail, office buildings and more. They were named one of the 100 fastest growing construction firms by “Entrepreneur” Magazine. They also have a strong commitment to environmental awareness, and provide LEED training to all project management employees and field staff. AYD is providing two 40 yard dumpsters and a 20 yard dumpster to this project, with many more expected.

We are excited to be a part of these growing cities and are committed to keeping them clean and green with the most advanced recycling and waste management practices.

AYD is Providing Services to Exciting Mixed-Use Development in Downtown Austin

AYD is Providing Services to Exciting Mixed-Use Development in Downtown Austin

We are currently providing our recycling and hauling services to a mixed-use development being constructed in downtown Austin. The building is named 3eleven, or 311 Bowie, and is located near West 5th and Bowie Street. It is expected to finish by the end of 2014.

3eleven will use the majority of its 36 floors for luxury apartments—358 residences will be available on 26 floors. However, the 400-foot high-rise will also utilize its ground floor for retail purposes, offering 4,268 feet of boutique space. The seventh and eighth floors are being built for office space and will encompass 40,684 feet of the building.

The mixed-use development broke ground in September of 2012 as a joint venture between Endeavor Real Estate Group and The Lynd Company. Endeavor, an acquisition and development firm involved in retail, office, industrial and mixed-use properties, is based in Austin. LYND is a San Antonio-based professional property management company. Both companies have solid real estate reputations and were excited to leave such an indelible mark on the city of Austin.

3eleven is located in the heart of Austin’s Market District, directly across from Whole Foods and the Shoal Creek Greenbelt multi-use trail. Dozens of Austin’s best bars, restaurants and food trucks are within walking distance of the development. Views of downtown Austin and important landmarks are available for residents living in 3eleven’s apartments.

Austin has been recognized in recent years as one of the fastest-growing “green” cities in the country. Its sustainability initiatives have encouraged both residents and companies to be responsible and to think of the environment. At Your Disposal Waste Services, Inc. has always strived to set an example as one of the greenest companies in the city. When developers begin planning large projects like 3eleven’s, it is vital for them to hire a responsible company like AYD to properly dispose of the construction debris.

AYD excels in correctly disposing of and recycling construction debris from development sites. We are currently providing two 30-yard dumpsters and one 40-yard on-call dumpster that we haul twice a day for the 3eleven construction site. As a US Green Building Council LEED-certified waste management company, we proudly meet the City of Austin’s green building requirements and are considered construction waste recycling specialists. On a typical construction site, we recycle and dispose of debris like concrete, drywall, sheetrock, paper, metals, aluminums and plastics.
