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.

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. As an independent hauler, we haul to the nearest recycling or waste facilities which allows us to provide our clients with multiple hauls per day so your project won’t be delayed. On average, we recycle up to 98% of the materials we haul making us a proud LEED-certified waste management company.

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.

How Many Leprechauns Fit in a 40 Yard Dumpster?

How Many Leprechauns Fit in a 40 Yard Dumpster?

How many leprechauns could you fit in a dumpster? Well, it pretty much depends on the size of your dumpster and the girth of your leprechauns. But, for the sake of argument, let’s take our 40 yard construction dumpsters and say that all of your leprechauns have kept up with their gym memberships. Why do you have all these leprechauns? I don’t know; they’re your leprechauns. Maybe you are throwing a Saint Patrick’s Day party and you need caterers, or you’re planning a tiny green flashmob.

Anyway. A full sized dumpster at 40 square yards has an area of 1320 feet. Leprechauns, if they aren’t too fat, generally clock in at three feet tall and aren’t going to be much wider than 2 feet. So if you’ve got leprechauns that are about 6 square feet, you could fit 220 of them in a 40 yard dumpster, if you packed them in there like sardines. Just remember though, they aren’t going to grant you any wishes or tell you where the gold is if you make them mad. But they might make your dumpster rental lucky!

NOTE: AYD Waste does not condone the abuse or entrapment of any living creature magical or not, nor will we haul away your leprechauns. See our FAQ for answers as to why, although that should be obvious. You got yourself into this mess, so you’ll have to get rid of them yourself. Most other messes though, we’ve got you covered. Also, all AYD Waste dumpsters are automatically lucky, no leprechaun required.
