Green building is here to stay, but complying with all the new recycling laws and regulations increases your cost of doing business. We all want to help the environment, especially because 40% of all waste sent to landfills is generated from construction. Creating an effective waste management plan for your construction project, salvaging materials, source separation, and using facilities that truly recycle materials is the key.

So how can you do all this for less and make a difference? Green Halo!
