Building and demolition waste

Building and demolition waste, rubble and bulky industrial waste

Definition

Building and demolition waste is the collective name for all waste substances generated during the construction and demolition of buildings and during roadworks. This waste category does not include soil excavated during construction work.

Building and demolition waste often consists of various materials: wood, plastic, stone, ceramics (roof tiles, bricks), concrete, sand, metal and chemical waste. Separating these substances as far as possible increases the possibilities for reuse.

Bulky industrial waste is mainly generated during clear-outs, and may consist of wood (A or B quality), furniture that is unsuitable for reuse, floor covering, etc. In other words, residual waste that is too large for the wastepaper bin.

Disposal

If work is carried out by contractors, they usually remove the waste generated.

Requests for emptying and extra temporary containers can be submitted to Facility Management. Defects, complaints and changes can also be reported to Facility Management.

Processing

This waste flow is sorted into fractions (rubble, wood, iron and sieved sand) at a special sorting plant.

Rubble is broken up after processing and used as a raw material in concrete or as a foundation material in road building.

Building and demolition waste and bulky industrial waste are sorted as much as possible for reuse. Wood that does not meet the criteria for A or B quality is burned.

After processing, rubble can therefore be used as a raw material in concrete, as a secondary fuel in installations or as a foundation material in road building.

Extra information

The processing company determines which waste stream is in the container. There is a different processing charge for each waste stream.
