Description

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste is mainly solid waste and typically includes packaging from new building materials as well as wood, plasterboard, metal, concrete and rubble resulting from construction, renovation and demolition of buildings. 

Plant matter and unwanted soil shifted during the building process also fall into the waste category. 

Reduce, reuse, recycle, recover - this revised edition explains with detailed guidance and case studies how these steps can be achieved. It is designed for builders, designers, tradespeople and educators.  

This book explains with detailed guidance how to reduce waste disposal costs, use materials more effectively, maximise the amount of waste diverted from landfills and cleanfills, reduce the environmental impact from landfill disposal, minimise contamination and damage, meet the requirements of the client and the recycling operator, develop a waste management plan to help achieve these goals and help secure higher building ratings from rating tools such as Homestar.
