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
- Gypsum plasterboard
- Carpets (in good condition)
- Bricks and tiles
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.
