Reduce your risk through better visibility
By Nate Budde
Construction payment is complex and full of challenges. The credit-heavy nature of construction projects and the lack of visibility throughout a project can give rise to critical payment problems that can reverberate up and down the payment chain.

MODRoto recycling and utility carts designed for hygienic transportation of wet and dry materials
Construction & Demolition Recycling
The 50P Series recycling and utility carts and trucks in the Poly-Trux line from recycling product manufacturer MODRoto feature a proprietary, T-nut design that allows wet and dry products to be collected and transported in a hygienic, plastic cart without leaks, drips and spills or of their potential to cause contamination, according to the company. Molded-in during manufacture, the T-nuts attach the plastic cart bin to its poly-steel base and casters, leaving a smooth, metal-free cart interior that is virtually leak-proof and eliminates outdated bolt-through designs, which can allow liquids to leak out the cart bottom, describes MODRoto.
