Why are there so many dumpsters in construction?
As the country is busy building out its new highway network, construction is booming.
But, of course, the amount of dumpsters on the road isn’t limited to just new highways, either.
According to a new study by a New Jersey-based engineering firm, the country’s construction industry is also using a wide range of dumpster waste for recycling and composting.
According the report, a whopping 9.4 billion tons of waste is generated in the U.S. each year, and the industry uses roughly 2 billion tons annually to make up for lost landfill space.
To put that in perspective, that’s a lot of dumpers!
This waste is dumped into the environment and into landfills.
And while that might seem like a lot, it’s actually just a fraction of what is dumped annually into the air, landfilling soil, and water sources.
The company that compiled the study says that while the industry recycles some of the waste, it also dumps large amounts of it into municipal landfill sites, where it can be easily disposed of.
For instance, waste from construction sites is frequently reused as building material, so it can get into the water supply and into the sewer system.
That can lead to lead poisoning, especially for children, according to the study.
According a spokesperson for the company, the company has collected and analyzed millions of dumpy materials in its research and believes that it’s possible to recycle about 30 percent of the trash it produces.
This recycling of waste will also help to reduce landfill space, the study said.
The United States has more than 10,000 construction sites, according the company.
While most of the sites are in rural areas, many are in cities, according their website.
It’s estimated that the average construction site takes about 20,000 tons of trash per year.
In addition to the waste that’s generated in construction, the waste is also being used for various purposes.
One example of this is when waste is put into the waste water system, the researchers found.
This is where a large portion of the material ends up as the waste treatment plants.
In some cases, these facilities are located in cities that have been building up their infrastructure for decades, according a spokesperson.
This has led to waste flowing into municipal facilities and landfiller sites.
In New York City alone, the City Department of Environmental Protection (DECP) reported that in 2015, about 1,300 tons of material were put into municipal landfiler waste ponds.
Waste that ends up in the waste ponds is then reused in the construction industry, according DECP.
Other waste that ends in the municipal waste treatment facilities ends up being put into landfill sites, too.
And in some cases this waste is reused into new construction sites.
And this waste can end up in construction waste dumps, too, according another spokesperson for DECP, which said that more than 2,600 landfill sites in the state had been built or are under construction, with another 5,000 sites being under construction.
It can also end up as construction waste.
While it may seem like the waste can be disposed of in landfilters, this is not always the case.
In a study conducted by the University of Illinois, it was found that landfill sites can be used as dumping sites.
According its study, “Landfill sites can hold large amounts (up to 3.5 million tons) of waste, and landfill sites often contain other materials such as building materials, cement, asphalt, wood pulp, metal, and metal shavings.”
These waste sites can also be used to store excess material from the construction of infrastructure.
According an article by The Washington Post, landfill site waste can also have a negative impact on the environment.
While landfill sites are typically used as storage for the waste they are containing, they also can be a source of pollution.
According To a study by the Environmental Defense Fund, “the most contaminated landfill site was in a small city in the Midwest, where construction debris could be found in nearly every landfill, from the top of the dumpster to the bottom.”
According to the report from the group, “There were more than 5,600 tons of construction debris in landfilled dumps that were collected from various sources and put into a database for future disposal.”
Waste can also become a pollutant if it’s dumped into municipal waste.
A study by Johns Hopkins University found that, “The amount of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, and methane that could be emitted from a dumpster has been estimated at 1.3 tons per cubic foot of waste per year.”
Waste from construction and landfill projects can also cause problems for the environment, according The University of Texas at Austin.
A survey conducted by researchers found that “a small portion of waste from new construction was dumped directly into the Gulf of Mexico during the first year of construction, and that a large percentage of the debris was discharged into the sea.” The study
