Growing 5% Greener each year
According to a construction reports, (click here) worldwide demand for construction aggregate is set to rise more than 5% yearly through 2017. This has been attributed to the nations in Africa and Asia developing their infrastructure (click here). As more foreign direct investment pours into these regions, these nations industrialize. With this comes parks, roads, homes, apartments, outdoor furniture and more. Now, this may not be as cool as concrete bricks made from recycled landfill waste (click here). These nations know they can build up a growing economy with environmentally friendly construction aggregate(Download Free PDF).
Committed to the Concrete
These growing nations are responding to an economic and environmental crisis. Industrializing means growing consumer demands. This results in creating more products that do not decay(See Government Report). According to Robin L. Schroeder, the author of this government report, “the creation of nondecaying waste materials, combined with a growing consumer population, has resulted in a waste disposal crisis.” But there is hope, “One solution to this crisis lies in recycling waste into useful products.” Westside Environmental happens to agree.
Get Involved and Start Recycling
At your next project or build recommend you use and contribute to construction aggregate recycling. This can lead to tax breaks, LEED qualification, and a planet that can sustain everyone. Sound like a good deal? Then give us a call to see how easy it is to build and recycle. 201.472.1031
