Scrap from construction and demolition, what to do?

June 10th, 2015

The construction industry generates a lot of scrap, it is a known fact. According to recent statistics, this industry it alone is responsible for almost 35% of all residual materials generated in Quebec. That is huge! It is therefore important to have environmentally conscious habits.

The famous 3R!

What is the 3 R? It is a comprehensive approach designed to minimize the amount of waste that will need to be buried. Therefore, it must reduce at source, reuse and recycle.

Reduction: the main goal!

Reduce; it is not discard which can still be used. In demolition, it is demolished more selectively in order to preserve what can be. Reduce should also be a way to consume better for example, buying goods more durable rather than disposable. Reflect on its consumption and avoid buying what is not needed is another way to reduce its own quantity of waste.

Reuse: which is no longer good for one may be to another!

Reuse, it is giving a new life to an object, allow its reuse rather than discard. In demolition, it is remove some elements of a building prior to its demolition and the back on the market.

Recycling: Give a second life by the substance.

Recycle, it is reuse of articles not for what they are, but for what they contain. In demolition, this is a significant portion of the operations. It is the whole of the construction industry in Quebec who made good figure for this purpose since the current rate of recovery of materials of construction, renovation and demolition is of 74%

The recycling of wood

February 12th, 2015

At the present time, most of the entrepreneurs, sensitized to the recovery and recycling of dry materials, have widely use of containers to retrieve and transfer these same materials to centers for sorting and packaging. It is also possible to recover and recycle the wood materials at the time of the demolition of a building.

The deconstruction selective allows you to separate and sort the materials with a view to the recycle and the upgrade. More and more cities in North America offer today services for selective collection and sorting of materials of deconstruction in wood in order to revalue the by-products such as panels of wood fibers, mulch or for the production of bioenergy.

Treated Wood or plant

- Reused for the same job. For example, the forms used to pour the concrete can be cleaned and reused. The poles of signaling non-damaged may be reused.
- Shredded to make mulch, landscaping, fuel, structuring agents or the compost.

Natural wood and strain

- Energy recovery
- Amendment to the soil
- Manufacture of paper
- Mulch
- Compost
- Litter
- Recycled and reused as a construction material

What does recycling give?

February 12th, 2015

Recycling is becoming more and more integrated to our habits of life, and it is so much the better! The gesture of recycling on a daily basis preserves our resources by allowing redoing the new with the old. Here is specifically what happens to the materials that you recycle. From the metals is done:

Metals (Steel)

- other metal parts
- cans
- nails
- automobiles
- flat rolled to make appliances
- various steel structures (for example: beams) for bridges or buildings

Metals (Aluminum)

- cans
- paper and plates of aluminum
- other aluminium products
- automotive parts (cylinder heads, rims, gearboxes, etc.).

Buy recycled, it is contributing to environmental protection

February 12th, 2015

The Quebec Policy on Waste Management as an important objective to eliminate a single residual material in Quebec, the ultimate residue.

- Bring to 700 kg per capita amount of disposed waste
- 70% Recycle paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal
- Recycle 60% of organic matter
- Recycle or reclaim 80% of residual concrete, brick and asphalt
- Sort at source or route to a sorting center 70% of construction waste, renovation and demolition

Buy products with recycled content to create a sustained demand for secondary materials, that is to say, from recycling materials that go into the manufacture of new products. And it promotes the development and maintenance of new markets for materials otherwise destined for disposal.

Thus, buying recycled products, it protects the environment in two ways:

- Using residual materials in the manufacture of new products, it avoids the need for removal for disposal, which also reduces greenhouse gas emissions that have been generated in the process.
- By encouraging the use of secondary materials in the manufacture of new products rather than virgin material, natural resources are preserved.

The Scraping of containers: essential in winter

February 7th, 2015

During the winter season, note that Multi Recyclage offers when needed the containers scraping service in the leasing to their customers. Be aware that scratching is required only when debris remain stuck in the bottom of a container. This happens of course in the winter due to frost. A backhoe is used to rake the bottom of the container. In this way, scraping allows the customer to have a free container of debris. As shown in the pictures here above, you can see the shovel loosen debris completely frosted cold in the bottom of the container.

For a very reasonable price, this service has become essential in the residential and business customers. Please join us to learn more about this practical service in winter.

Reuse of waste materials

January 28th, 2015

The reuse: as many benefits as possibilities. The benefits of reuse are multiple and congregate in the three spheres of sustainable development that are the economy, society and the environment:

- if the reuse is an act substitute to the acquisition of a new good, it helped in the preservation of natural resources by the reduction at the source
- by contributing to the lengthening of the duration of the life of an asset, the reuse delayed step of a transformation more important which requires more energy, such as the recycling
- the reuse fact unborn many favorable opportunities on the economic plan (advantageous prices and creation of jobs)
- the reuse allows people less fortunate to acquire goods at low cost with charities
- the reuse constitutes in many of the cases an option more environmentally sound than the elimination.

The reuse actors in Quebec

The reuse of a wide variety of articles explains the presence of actors very diversified in this sector in Quebec, whether they are charities or to the search for business opportunities. It is estimated that the non-profit businesses represent approximately two thirds of all actors of the reuse. These companies are of different natures: social economy enterprises, charities, work centers adapted (WCA), corporate training centers and recovery (CTCR), religious institutions or charitable, etc.

Building materials become what?

January 28th, 2015

What building materials sorted? In Quebec, several materials can be recycled and can be sorted separately. Here’s the list:

Cement concrete and bricks

They can be used as fill material or drainage stone. Crushed aggregate, they can be integrated in the production of cement concrete or bituminous concrete.

Reinforced concrete

It is repackaged for reinforcing steel, beams and frames.

Wood

Used for composting, plywood panels, chipboard molded pallets, briquettes for homes, bedding, fuel pellets, mulch, acoustic panels.

Cardboard

Production of new cardboard or energy recovery.

Gypsum

It is ground to a fine powder and used for fertilizer, bedding, sound insulation or thermal insulation.

Ferrous metals (steel beams, plumbing materials, pipes, window frames, etc.) and non-ferrous metals (cabling and wiring, sheet metal and aluminum siding, etc.)

Once melted, they are used to make new products.

The recycling industry and its jobs

January 28th, 2015

Considered formerly as of vulgar waste, residual materials are today resources to exploit, in the same way as the raw materials. Their implementation in value not only protects the environment, but it also stimulates a whole industry!

In Quebec, more than 10,000 workers are scrambling to recover, to sort, to reuse, to recycle and to valuing of the substances that would be otherwise destined for disposal.

In addition to the firms that perform the selective collection, the industry has over 40 centers of traditional sort, of even an equivalent number of sorting centers specialized in the construction waste, renovation and demolition.

The industry also includes companies that recover, recycle and recover specific materials; there are also the metal shredders and about thirty compost sites managed by companies.

The industry also includes the manufacturers of equipment for businesses for the collection, sorting, recycling and recovery of waste materials as well as management consultants of residual materials.

Looking for Workers

The industry is alive and well and hiring. In the sub-sector of recycling, there is a shortage of truckers, of agents of sorting.

However, the needs of sorters could decline over the next few years, because the trend is for the automation.

Don’t hesitate to ask advices to this subject. Multi Recyclage will be pleased to suggest other options in case of need.

What is a sorting Center of dry materials?

January 28th, 2015

The main objective of a sorting Center of dry materials is to allow citizens and entrepreneurs to dispose of materials which are not allowed in the collection of household waste or either destined for a re-Valuation-recovery of materials they wish to dispose of.

Therefore, the establishment of the center for sorting allows you to actively participate to decrease the amount of bulky residues destined for landfill sites.

What is a dry material?

This is called dry materials, the residue from construction, renovation and demolition. This is made usually of construction materials that no longer have value useful, for example: shingles roof worn. Once retrieved, these materials will enter in the composition of new objects.

Multi Recyclage recycled not less than 75% of the 100,000 tons of materials received in its recycling centers. Their centers for sorting and transshipment allowing the recovery of debris from construction or demolition are open to entrepreneurs as well as to individuals. The company plans to also use these places as location for research and experimentation in the field of recycling and recovery.
