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.

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.

You’ll Be Seeing More AYD Construction Dumpsters in Austin!

We’re excited to announce several new projects in and around Austin that will require our dumpsters for on-going construction projects that will wrap in the next two years.

We have signed on with Harvey-Cleary to provide dumpster rental services on site for the construction of the new Austin Aquatics Center located at 5513 Southwest Parkway. Scheduled to wrap up in a little over a year, we have provided the site with a 40-yard roll-off dumpster.

The aquatics center will be a great addition to the community, housing a state-of-the-art training facility for competitive swimmers and triathletes. The center will also feature a world-class competition pool, running trail, and access to trainers.

With construction underway, we have partnered with Realtex Development on the construction of a new apartment community located at South 1st Street in Austin. This area is known for eclectic shops, galleries and restaurants that line the street. AYD has provided several 30-yard and 40-yard roll-off dumpsters for the construction site. The community will consist of 278 units and is tentatively scheduled for completion in a year.

Recently, we just signed on with Journeyman Construction to provide services for the construction of a 300-unit project. The property is 15 miles south of Austin at Cabelas Drive in the up-and-coming city of Buda, TX. Buda is known as the wine country of Texas, and is one of the fastest growing wine destinations in the country. The project is estimated to be completed in under two years.

We are proud to have the resources and capabilities to work on multiple projects simultaneously. We offer same day services for orders placed before 10am and proudly service all of Austin, TX.

Renting Construction Dumpsters for New Apartment Community in Austin

Renting Construction Dumpsters for New Apartment Community in Austin

 

We are currently working with Watermark Commercial Contractors with the construction of new 410-unit apartment complex in Austin. Situated north of Downtown near Austin State Hospital, the apartment community will be located at 4108 Avenue F and does not yet have a name.

We have multiple dumpster sizes on site to accommodate the various types of debris and refuse generated from the construction. One 40-yard dumpster will collect all of the general waste like paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and wood. A smaller 20-yard dumpster is also on site to collect concrete. This size is essential for collecting and transporting bulky and heavy materials like brick, concrete or even dirt to ensure safety of the construction workers, AYD employees and the staff at local landfills and recycling centers.

First, the 20-yard dumpster is a bit easier to fill which is important when you’re loading heavy items that are more difficult to handle. Second, this size is much harder to overload. A dumpster that is overfilled is heavier which means more expense for the contractors. It can also be a safety hazard because heavier dumpsters may be harder to load on our transportation trucks and more difficult to empty.

Both dumpsters are “on call.” This means that we’ll haul each dumpster to be emptied whenever it is required. This flexibility means that the construction job can stay on schedule and won’t be delayed waiting on a dumpster.

We’ve assisted on the construction of student housing for the University of Texas campus in Austin as well as other apartment complexes and office buildings. The city is ever-expanding and we pride ourselves on supporting the local economy and the growth of our city.

If you’re working on apartment construction in Austin, please call us to discuss your waste management needs. We have a variety of dumpster sizes available, offer same-day service and can provide a flexible hauling schedule to meet the needs and goals of your project.

We’re Providing Recycling Hauling in Austin for New Student Housing Construction

We’re currently working with JE Dunn Construction on a new 6-story student housing development near the University of Texas at Austin’s west campus. We’ve stocked the construction site with both 20-yard and 40-yard dumpsters, and we’re providing regular recycling hauling.

The new student housing is located at 24th Street and San Gabriel and will be called Regents West at 24th. It is a sister-site to the Regents West at 26th student housing building located just a few blocks away. Both apartment communities offer efficiency studios up to five-bedroom apartments with a variety of unique floor plans. Located within walking distance of the University of Texas at Austin, the apartment community will also offer a regular shuttle service to transport students to and from campus. Other amenities include wireless high-speed internet, a study lounge, a 24-hour fitness center, and on-site maintenance. Regents West is currently leasing units for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year.

In Austin, it is mandatory for all construction sites to recycle debris. As a LEED AP-certified recycling hauler, AYD is ready and well-informed to provide recycling hauling services for Austin residents, businesses and new development. On brand new construction sites, we easily recycle 95-98% of all construction debris materials, which often include concrete, drywall, wood, metal and paper.

Per LEED requirements, we also provide clients with an exact, calculated breakdown showing the total tons of materials hauled and the percentage recycled. In addition, we’re able to provide multiple hauls each day if needed, swapping out dumpsters and transporting loaded dumpsters to the appropriate recycling center or landfill. This keeps construction projects running smoothly and efficiently.

Based in Kansas City, JE Dunn Construction has been in the industry for more than 85 years. The company expanded outside of Kansas City and now counts 20 office locations across the United States. In 2012, JE Dunn ranked as the twelfth largest general building company in the US.

Cavemen May Have Discovered Recycling but We Know How to Do it On a Large Scale

Cavemen May Have Discovered Recycling but We Know How to Do it On a Large Scale

hauling recycling in austin tx

Did you know cavemen were active recyclers? That’s right! Our prehistoric ancestors collected and reused discarded, broken or otherwise abandoned tools made of bone or flint to create new utensils. The behavior was discovered by archaeologists in countries across the globe from Spain to North Africa, Italy to Israel, and some cases date back as far as 1.3 million years ago!

Unlike our current motivations to protect the environment and reduce pollution, early forms of recycling were a basic survival strategy. Our early ancestors did share a similar motivation with us, though: to conserve energy and materials. This led to them reusing tools repeatedly, sometimes over thousands of years!

As one of the leading waste disposal companies in Texas, we’re committed to doing more than hauling trash to the dump. As a LEED-certified business, we promote initiatives like the Texas Environmental Quality Initiatives Program and community beautification projects that create a cleaner, greener community, and that’s why we recycle.

Plenty of construction debris — concrete, asphalt, shingles, gypsum wallboard (also know as drywall), wood and metals — can be recycled. When we haul away debris, these materials are sorted and delivered to local recycling plants or power plants that convert the materials into fuel. Recycling keeps construction costs down and large debris out of landfills.

Concrete, for example, is often recycled. Through several crushing processes, large chunks of concrete are ground down and used as a replacement for gravel in other construction, landscaping or building projects. In fact, 140 million tons of concrete alone are recycled each year just in the United States! Drywall is often recycled to recover the gypsum content, which can be reused to manufacture new drywall, in the production of cement or as an ingredient in fertilizer.

For more information about the recycling and hauling services we offer, please give us a call at (512) 272-5400.
