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.

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.

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.

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.

Our Tree and Wood Recycling Efforts in Austin

Our Tree and Wood Recycling Efforts in Austin

dumpster rental company in austin offers wood recycling

Recycling is an evolving concept in Austin. As the city and Travis County move forward to achieve Zero Waste by 2040, more materials will need to be recycled to meet this goal. AYD offers recycling collection and hauling for construction and demolition jobs. We’ve recently partnered with several local landscaping businesses and excavation companies to begin hauling and recycling organic waste.

Organic waste includes everything that’s trimmed, tugged or removed during routine landscape maintenance like small trees, scrub brush, leaves and grass clippings, as well as the larger trees that have to be removed from a plot of land before construction can begin. The suburbs of Austin are full of oak and cedar trees which can be recycled into mulch, wood chips or even fertilizer. Smaller materials can be recycled into compost, fertilizer or mulch, or even taken to a landfill where it will help break down other materials that have been tossed away.

Landscaping companies often collect trimmings and waste throughout the day and haul it in a trailer back to their main location or yard. We’ve installed 40-yard dumpsters to collect this waste which we then haul to recycling centers that can process even the most massive of trees into mulch or chips.

All kinds of wood can be recycled. We’re capable of collecting and hauling discarded or odd cuts of lumber, trimmings and scrap wood, and even the leftovers from cabinetry building. Though wood is naturally biodegradable, the conditions of a landfill increase the time it takes wood to decompose. A standard, unpainted hardwood chair can take 13 years to fully degrade! It’s also typically more expensive for businesses to dispose of waste in landfills, so recycling is as good for your budget and it is for the environment.

We are LEED certified, so we’re able to work with green builders in Austin to recycle all C&D materials. We are committed to Austin’s recycling ordinance and participate in the Texas Environmental Quality Initiatives Program.
