Construction Waste

Construction and demolition is the single largest UK waste stream, and includes over 20% of all hazardous waste and 20% of fly-tipped waste. Waste accounts for up to 5% of construction project value. 

This has lead to the construction industry paying an estimated 200 million per year in landfill tax, which will rise with further tax increases and planned construction activity over the next decade. This, together with a host of additional legislative requirements, means the issue of waste is likely to rise in importance to all those in the construction sector.
