Safely disposing of construction and demolition waste

Much of the waste produced when constructing, renovating and demolishing homes can be reused or recycled. As a home builder or renovator, you have many options available for the responsible disposal of your construction and demolition (C&D) waste.

The benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling C&D waste include:

  • Less space needed for landfills in our local areas.
  • More efficient use of valuable, non-renewable resources.
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions from the production and transportation of new resources.

A number of C&D wastes can be recycled. These include:

  • Steel and aluminium
  • Glass
  • Gypsum plasterboard
  • Carpets (in good condition)
  • Timber
  • Bricks and tiles
  • Concrete
  • Plastics

We offer lower prices for disposing of C&D wastes that are sorted by type or have the ability to be sorted at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre. For a full list of prices, read our Fees and Charges.
