There are so many things to consider when you start renovating that responsibly disposing of renovation waste can sometimes find itself at the very bottom of a very long 'to do' list. But it's estimated that up to 40% of Australia's landfill waste is building waste and most of it can be reused or recycled! Steel, aluminium, plasterboard, timber, concrete, glass, carpet, windows, doors, tiles, bricks, appliances and aerosol cans can all be re-used or recycled; you just need to plan ahead. These websites make finding drop off centres and timing council collections easy and they have all the information you need to responsibly manage your renovation waste in Australia.
