Waste Classification, Material Re-use and Resource Recovery

IMG_2699 | Consulting Earth Scientists

The appropriate classification of waste materials is a crucial consideration and essential to the commercial and environmental success of any construction, demolition and development project.

The incorrect classification of waste can lead to significant unnecessary project expense and/or useful resources unnecessarily occupying valuable landfill space.

Incorrect classification and incorrect disposal of waste materials can also jeopardises the commercial viability of projects and have legal implications for project proponents. To not optimise the re-use of materials is a missed opportunity both commercially and environmentally.

It is therefore important for any project that the correct waste classification be determined and waste materials, re-used, recycled and recovered as a resource in an environmental prudent, beneficial and lawful manner.
