There are a few routes to recycling your construction waste that you might want to consider.

If you are more of a do-it-yourself person, you certainly can! In this post, we run through the different ways to recycle construction waste.




Different ways to recycle

Firstly, you’d need to separate out each component of the waste, to ensure everything goes to the right place. Before you begin to move any waste, you’ll need to create a waste transfer note. This must contain all of the necessary information and classifications of the waste and you must keep a copy of it for at least two years. If you fail to produce a waste transfer note, or it is incorrect, you face some hefty fines.

If you work for a company, you’ll also need to ensure you have a waste carriers license and all of the training to qualify for that. If you’re doing it for yourself, you would still need the license but it is free to obtain. This is all purely so that you can transport a large quantity of waste yourself.


Once you have the license, there are fees to be paid at the landfill or recycling site you choose and these fees only increase with the more waste you have. If you fail to dispose of any of the waste properly, you can land a hefty fine or even some time in prison. 

Once you have done all of the above, and paid all you need to pay, you can begin getting rid of your rubbish. 

Another option is to find a company that can do all of that, and more, for you.
