Responsible Construction Waste Management

The safe and responsible disposal of construction materials

 

Roughly half of the solid waste accumulated across the globe is from building and construction materials. Whether you’re removing clay, concrete, bricks, or other hard construction/building materials from your work site, or just have a lot of general rubbish and waste you need to get rid of, the team at Bulk Waste Collection can help!

In Australia, there are a lot of rules and regulations that need to be adhered to when disposing of construction waste. These rules are all applicable to the removal of hard waste from building sites in Perth, and can be difficult to follow if you’re not properly equipped with the right bins and transport, and not aware of the different methods of disposal. This is where construction waste removal services come into play.

With a keen focus on sustainable waste management, and on embracing the reduce, reuse and recycle principals that have become increasingly important over the past decade, we’re the experts in the trade.

What’s Classified as Construction Waste?

Construction waste can include excavated material, such as dirt, sandstone, and soil, but is comprised mostly of construction, building, and demolition waste.

Your Construction Waste Responsibilities

All construction waste in Perth has to be transported to a place that can lawfully accept it; this can include tips and landfills.

If any waste is disposed of unlawfully, both the owner of the waste and the transporter will be held accountable. The maximum penalty for illegally dumping waste that can have a negative impact on the environment is a $5 million fine, or a seven-year jail sentence.

An Environmentally-Conscious Approach

The safe disposal of waste varies between states. In Western Australia, the Department of Environment Regulation and Waste Authority WA are both useful resources.

In Perth, and the rest of the country, recycling and re-using construction and demolition material is becoming standard practice across the industry.

Waste, such as asphalt, bricks, and concrete are all materials that can be potentially reused or recycled. These items can be redeveloped into aggregate, or new asphalt and concrete products.

At the very least, we always make sure that all of the rubbish we dispose is separated into waste, and recyclable materials, so you can rest assured, we’re doing our part to help limit the environmental impact of construction waste.
