Construction Recycling for New Austin Affordable Housing Complexes

Construction Recycling for New Austin Affordable Housing Complexes

point-at-ben-white-rendering-750xx628-354-61-64

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 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.

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.

The Purpose of Roll Off Dumpsters

The Purpose of Roll Off Dumpsters

green-environment

Roll off dumpsters are very purposely in the city of Austin, Texas. There are even some local governments not located in the city that roll or buy roll offs for their citizens’ waste. Commercial businesses need roll offs for their waste and could get in big trouble for not having one for this very reason. And most importantly, roll off dumpsters keep the environment clean and green. Without these roll offs, our children, the animals, and the trees wouldn’t be able to flourish as they do now.

The Bigger The Better!

The Bigger The Better!

Why is bigger better? Because it can save you money. At AYD Waste, we can provide you with 20, 30 and 40 yard roll off containers, or dumpsters, whereas other companies can only provide you with 30 yard as their largest size. Therefore, if you need more space than what a 30 yard dumpster can offer, you would have to rent more than one from these companies. At AYD Waste, we have larger dumpsters to save you money and time.
