Investigate recycling and disposal options before the job begins. Place recycling bins in a location that will prevent misuse or contamination. Educate subcontractors about what materials will be recycled for the project. Teach subcontractors to keep lunch bags, caulking tubes and other garbage out of the recycling areas. Determine whether the structure is a good candidate for deconstruction or disassembly by hand.Remove salvageable items as early in the project as possible.
Mixed debris can be taken to a drop-off site for recycling, as long as loads are free of household garbage, food, liquid and hazardous waste. And when you recycle, you not only save money, but you also help conserve natural resources. Work with your hauler or recycler to determine what materials should be separated for recycling. Even a small amount of garbage in a load of recyclables makes the entire load unacceptable for recycling. Allow time for this at the front end of the project schedule.

Custom Building Products Polyblend 115 Platinum 10 Lb. Non Sanded Grout PBG11510 by homedepot.com
It was completely random and varied from white to dark gray over the entire project!
I kept hoping that within a few days the grout would dry to an even color. It applied unevenly, displays similar inconsistency in color, and some cracks and pinholes are apparent. Once in and set, this grout does its job and looks great, but it is difficult to fully work into the grout lines without getting voids that require going back and refilling. Based on cost of products would have expected much better result. I just used a toothbrush to scrub it on and wiped off the excess. Very disappointed that the light smoke grout color was very uneven looking when dried. The non-sanded grout is polymer-modified to produce hard, dense joints that are resistant to shrinking, cracking and wear. It is formulated with proprietary technology to ensure durability, color consistency and quick setting.
We mixed the grout according to the instructions, and it seemed fine when going on. It dried almost white in some places and dark gray in others.
We used a hammer drill to mix so it wasnt that it didnt get mixed enough.
We finally have the look we were going for, but it took considerably more time and money than it should have. I only got a bit of spotty grout toward the edges where you can’t tell. When you see the grout mix dry in the bag, that is the color the applied grout should dry to. Very disappointed, for the color match of grout to caulk was awful. Now have to remove caulk and find better color match product. It seems like this is an issue with just about all black grout due to the amount of cement required. The color was my wife’s pick and she likes the look of the finished job. Very minimal cracking or crazing in the joints (some minor touch up needed). Had to scrub all the grout lines w their sulfamic acid product to remove the efforvescence then seal. Maybe it was mixed badly by my installer in the beginning?
