Renovation Waste

Preparing a waste management plan at the beginning of your project, and sharing this plan with your builders and subcontractors, can help to ensure that excess materials are reduced, reused, and recycled rather than being sent to landfill. A waste management plan sets out the different types of waste you’ll be creating and how you’d like those waste streams to be managed. If you speak with your local council about the types of building waste you’re likely to generate, they can help to provide you with the different options available.
