What you need to know

Americans throw away approximately 3.7 trillion pounds of construction debris every year. Yet a majority of construction and demolition debris that gets tossed could be recycled. This not only helps you operate more sustainably but can also result in cost savings for your business. Some common materials we can assist with include metal, cardboard, wood, and plastic.

  • Wood

    Wood waste can take quite awhile to break down. Rather than sending it to the landfill, it’s much more beneficial to turn it into something useful and environmentally friendly instead. Rubicon can not only make this a reality but also educate you on the items we can help you save.

  • Concrete/Drywall

    Both concrete and drywall recycling are becoming popular ways to utilize debris left behind when structures, buildings, or roadways are demolished. Unfortunately, this rubble frequently ends up in the landfill instead. Rubicon helps businesses with their concrete and drywall recycling, ensuring the reuse of debris while keeping construction costs down.

  • Cardboard

    The majority of commercial recycling is made up of discarded cardboard. Cardboard is not only a common material, but it’s also the easiest to recycle for rebates. It can be baled and stored inside or outside until it’s ready for pickup.

  • Metal

    Discarded metals are typically thrown into an open top dumpster, picked up by a truck and taken to a scrap yard. Be sure you don’t confuse metal recycling with electronic waste, which needs to be handled separately. Not sure if your metal is recyclable? We’re here to help.

  • Plastic

    Plastic is used in just about everything, from water bottles to packing peanuts. When the price of the material exceeds to cost to process it, recycling plastic can be profitable. Rubicon keeps an eye on market values and works with local vendors to ensure you’ll get the best return on your discarded plastics.
