Saving Money On dump feescomments (6) April 20th, 2011 in Project Gallery
When I am installing gyproc I leave one side of a wall unfinished untill the very end. I do this so i can have a place to store all those scrap bits of gyproc that have been produced. You must be sure to fit them snugly so no rattles occur when the wall is shaked.
Four good reasons for doing this are: Slight noise reduction, saving on labour of hauling the scrap away, saving on dump fees (74$ a ton) and keeping waste out of the landfill.
The only negative i can find for this is if remodling is done on the wall some one is in for a nasty suprise.
Let me know your insights on this.
