Materials from construction and demolition activities include concrete, bricks, tiles and timber, as well as hazardous materials such as paint or asbestos.
Recycling or safe disposal of these materials is important as it can help reduce pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and energy used over a product’s lifecycle. More importantly, recycling of these materials helps ensure we continue to have access to affordable, high-quality building materials.
In terms of cost, reducing your usage and waste can achieve savings through spending less on materials and avoiding disposal costs.
