Using Wastes to Build Sheds as a Sustainable Alternative in El Prodigio (San Luis, Antioquia-Colombia)

Keywords: Sustainable construction, social integration, reused materials, polyethylene terephthalate bottles, construction and demolition waste

Abstract

The construction sector, fundamental for the economy and development of Colombia, has experienced an enormous growth in recent years. However, it is also one of the sectors that generate most solid wastes (ordinary, construction, and demolition wastes), which are disposed of in open or mismanaged dumps, causing various problems to nearby communities and the environment. The use of solid waste in construction projects has been considered an alternative for environmental sustainability. Consequently, in this study, construction and demolition waste, polyethylene terephthalate bottles, soil, guadua, wood waste, wire waste, and plastic wraps were used to build chicken coops in El Prodigio (San Luis, Antioquia, Colombia) as an alternative to improve the well-being of its rural communities affected by violence. As a result, it was determined that using alternative materials in the construction of chicken coops fostered social integration and reduced the environmental impact of 1864 kg of residual raw materials (usually considered waste) and 279 kg of non-residual materials. Guadua, a natural fiber, was the most commonly used material, as it composed 95 % of the constructions described here; the remaining 5 % was made of elements widely employed in the building industry. Applying sustainability principles in the poultry sector promotes the use of alternative materials in communities that need environmental and social improvements, such as the minimization of plastic waste in urban and rural areas.
