The Circular Economy in Action: Renting Toilets, Fencing, Equipment and Sheds

How does renting building site equipment benefit your business? There are many reasons why you should rent fencing, portable toilets, site sheds and more. As well as being better for you financially, renting offers benefits to the environment and to the production of high-quality products that will last for years to come.

What is the Circular Economy?

The circular economy is a sustainable economic model designed to minimise waste and maximise resource efficiency. The idea is to keep products, materials, and resources in use for as long as possible. Unlike the traditional ‘linear’ economy, which follows a “take-make-throw-away” pattern, the circular economy aims to close the loop by promoting practices such as recycling and reusing.

It emphasises the importance of extending product lifecycles and reducing consumption. By adopting circular economy principles, individuals, businesses and societies more broadly can reduce their environmental impact, conserve natural resources, and create economic opportunities.

How does Renting Contribute to the Circular Economy?

Renting equipment instead of buying it contributes significantly to the circular economy. It extends the lifespan of products, reduces overall resource consumption, and ensures products are used to their optimum potential. Some of the many benefits of renting instead of always purchasing new equipment include:

  • Reduces the need for production of new products. This results in a decrease in the demand for raw materials and energy-intensive production processes.
  • Reduces waste in landfill. Purchased products are typically used for a much shorter amount of time, meaning more items end up in landfill.
  • Improves quality of products. Rental companies only invest in durable, high-quality products that will be suitable to be used over the long term and by a range of users. This means that the products getting produced for this purpose are better than the ones designed for short term use and disposal by a single user.

Why is Renting Equipment instead of Buying Beneficial to you?

There are many reasons why renting equipment such as portable toilets, temporary fences and site office sheds is beneficial for your business. As well as contributing to the circular economy and being better for the environment and for the long-term improvement of products, renting equipment offers cost advantages and operational efficiencies for your organisation.

Purchasing your own equipment means a significant upfront cost to your business as well as ongoing costs in the long term, such as the price of maintenance, transport and storage of the equipment. Building equipment is usually large and difficult to store between jobs, meaning you’ll be out of pocket for any time when the equipment isn’t required.

When you rent equipment instead, there’s no need to organise storage or transportation between sites; simply request what you require and have the correct equipment delivered in perfect working order, where and when you need it.

Additionally, any equipment you purchase will ultimately get old and become redundant, and therefore need replacing. When you rent equipment instead, you’re always receiving new products that have been maintained by the experts. This prevents both waste and environmental impacts, and the costs of replacement for you.
