Most nights we go for a walk after dinner and the majority of the time we walk through a new neighbourhood that is being built. Lately I have noticed the increase in piles of crap laying all over the place. Mostly it is bricks, coffee cups, siding, stone and broken up concrete. I have hopes that someone sorts this and sends the bricks, siding and stone to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Hell there are 2 within 20 minutes of here! But I really do not think that is happening. I have emailed the builders who are involved in this neighbourhood to see what they do with their waste. It will be interesting to see what they say.
It has made me wonder about how much waste was being produced by each new home being built. Because based on the size of the piles it is either a crap load or a shit ton. And why is there so much waste? Surely they know roughly how many brick Model XYZ needs and that Lot #54 and #49 picked the same brick so the skids can be shared between the 2 houses?
Have you built a new home? Any insight into what happened with the leftover waste?
