Construction and demolition recycling

Encouraging greater use of recycled construction and demolition products

Western Australia’s (WA) Waste avoidance and resource recovery strategy 2030 (waste strategy) contains targets for C&D waste, including a material recovery target of 75 per cent by 2025 and 80 per cent by 2030. 

The waste strategy contains approaches which apply to C&D materials, including a commitment to sustainable procurement practices that encourage greater use of recycled products and support local market development. 

The Waste Authority supports initiatives which avoid and recover C&D materials, including the   Roads to Reuse program which encourages the use of recycled C&D products in civil applications, such as road construction.
