What is Construction and Demolition Waste?

Facts about Construction and Demolition Waste

Information contained in the National Waste Report 2020, states that Australia generated 27 million tonnes of waste (44% of all waste) from the construction and demolition (C&D).

What is Construction and Demolition Waste?

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste is generated from construction, renovation, repair, and demolition of houses, commercial buildings, road works, and bridges. C&D waste materials consist of concrete, bricks, sand, steel, glass, timber, wood, plastics, cardboard, soil, and rubber.

What does Instant Waste Management do with Construction and Demolition waste?

Instant Waste Management aims to recycle at least 80% of the C&D waste we collect. We work with both residential and commercial builders to collect from sites and repurpose the materials back for use into the economy. This effectively reduces carbon footprint, costs, and saves our valuable resources from being overused.

How is Construction and Demolition waste collected?

Instant Waste Management offers skip bins and hook bins in a range of sizes from 2m3 to 30m3.

Our skip and hook bins are delivered to your site to collect the C&D waste and once the bins are full, they are tipped out at our Material Recovery Facility (MRF).  This is where the materials get processed and diverted away from landfill sites.
