Construction and demolition waste recycling and disposal

Construction and demolition (C&D) waste consist of the debris or leftover materials generated during the construction, renovation and demolition of a structure e.g. buildings, roads and bridges.
Recycle and recover materials

Council actively encourages the recycling of construction and demolition waste.


Disposal at council’s waste management facilities: Licensing conditions with the state authority (DERM) place limitations on the type and amount of waste materials that can be accepted at council’s waste management facilities. Refer to council’s website for the full list of ‘Accepted Waste’ at the four major waste management facilities.
If the waste is NOT accepted at council’s waste management facilities, services are offered by commercial recyclers who can provide onsite or offsite solutions. Refer to the Yellow pages or Planet Ark’s Business Recycling website: http://businessrecycling.com.au/
Save money: By sorting C&D waste and recovering these materials through other industry or council programs, you can reduce waste disposal costs, including the state government waste levy.




Timber and green waste recycling



Metal recycling

The following waste types, that could be included in C&D waste, are accepted at council’s four major Waste Management Facilities:




Waste type

Recycling and disposal options at council waste management facilities

Asphalt/bitumen

If the bitumen/asphalt disposed of can be crushed it will be recycled and used in road construction at council’s waste management facilities

Bulky waste

Waste from a construction or demolition site that may have a large volume e.g. open rolls of fencing wire, water tanks etc

Cardboard/paper

Cardboard & paper can be recycled.

Ensure that the material is dry and free from contaminates to ensure the product can be recycled, and that are collapsed and flattened with all the packaging material removed.



Clean fill

Only loads of earthen material that are at least 90% clean soil or similar spreadable material are considered clean fill. The load can include sand, clay, road base and gravel mixtures. The material must be able to be reused onsite as a cover material. The remaining 10% can contain material such as vegetation, water and other solid earthen material (e.g. rocks) with a max size of 100mm. The load should contain no waste or separate foreign material.

Concrete waste including bricks and pavers

Accepted and processed (crushed & reused) at council’s major waste management facilities. Please ensure the concrete is not contaminated with any waste or separate foreign materials e.g. fibro sheeting, plastics, tiles and timber to ensure it can be recycled.

General waste

Mixed, unsorted non hazardous waste including mixed C&D is accepted for disposal at council’s major waste management facilities. However it will incur the higher general waste disposal fees if it has not been sorted into the recyclable waste types.

Glass from windows and doors

Small or large quantities in good condition can be donated, or delivered to the Treasure Market at the Caboolture or Dakabin waste management facilities.

Broken glass panes are not recyclable, and will be disposed of in landfill.



Green waste including trees & stumps

Green waste (garden and organic waste) must be separated and free from contamination so it can be recycled into mulch.

Lightweight waste

Polystyrene is currently not a recyclable material at council’s waste management facilities and it will be disposed of in landfill.

Metal

Scrap metal including roofing and fencing should be separated from other waste and is accepted at council’s major waste management facilities OR it can be sold to a scrap metal merchant from your business site.

Plasterboard/ gypsum

Small or large quantities in good condition can be donated or delivered to the Treasure Markets at the Caboolture or Dakabin waste management facilities. Broken panels are not recyclable, and will be disposed of in landfill.

Recyclable packaging

(not including polystyrene or soft plastic wrap)



Cardboard, paper, glass bottles and jars, aluminium and steel cans, milk and juice cartons and recyclable plastics can be recycled using council’s kerbside collection service or at council’s waste management facilities.

You may be required to sort these items for separate disposal areas for cardboard and paper, glass, plastics, aluminium cans, and steel cans. Please ensure the recyclable waste is not contaminated with any other waste types to ensure the product can be recycled.
