Construction Waste – the amount

As recently as 2011, construction waste accounted for 50% of waste that went to landfill. Despite improvements since, even by 2014 more than 5 million tonnes of non-hazardous waste is landfilled annually  in the UK.

Reducing Construction Waste in Leeds and other cities

One striking feature of reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill is that ordering correctly could make big difference. An average of 10% of all cosntruction materials ordered ends up as waste.

How to deal with Construction Waste

Leeds, like other cities, produces Construction Waste in commercial and household settings. Many commercial building firms with large building sites have contracted suppliers for disposal of waste.

Smaller Building Contractors, often when working in a domestic setting may find that licensed waste teams like Yes Waste can provide a comprehensive service. This is ideal when competeing for contracts with Householders and Councils who are increasingly aware of their effects on the environment.
