Orlando, Florida-based container rental company Sunshine Recycling is currently providing both 20-yard and 30-yard construction roll-off containers on the site of a new apartment community located at 7001 Palm Parkway in Orlando. Sunshine Recycling is hauling metal and concrete to be recycled, and is also providing portable restrooms and holding tanks for the construction trailers.

Sunshine Recycling is working with general contractors Altman Contractors Inc. on the 334-unit rental development known as Altis at Sand Lake. The apartment community will feature a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

The 30-cubic-yard containers are used to collect and haul standard construction debris such as drywall or sheet rock, wood, paper, plastics and other scraps. The smaller 20-cubic-yard container is specifically designed and intended for the collection and hauling of bulky, heavy and large debris; this sized Dumpster is on-site to collect concrete. Metals are recycled to produce other metal products and concrete can be recycled to create asphalt, new concrete or gravel. It also has landscaping applications and can be used to stop erosion.

“As a LEED-certified waste management company, we are capable of providing superior recycling and hauling services whether or not the job has LEED requirements,” says Chuck Herb, owner of Sunshine Recycling. “It’s important to us as a company to support environmental initiatives and work with builders to recycle as much debris as possible. We can typically recycle 98 percent or more of the debris collected.”
