Over 50,000 new construction sites started between 1st April and 30th June 2022 alone, it’s not a surprise the construction industry uses approximately 400 million tonnes of building materials a year. It is estimated that, on average, 25% (100 million tonnes) go to waste each year and 93% is recycled and reused.
The majority of waste goes to landfill, where hazardous materials need to be managed correctly otherwise, they could cause soil and water pollution. Therefore, it is crucial that construction companies aim to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle to minimise their waste and conserve the planet.

There are increasingly more options available in terms of recycling and reusing construction materials and in turn, reducing landfill waste.

It is, therefore, crucial that construction companies continue their aim to reduce, reuse, and recycle to minimise their waste and conserve the planet’s natural resources.
