New perspectives on waste in the construction sector

Construction and demolition waste are reported by BRANZ to make up to 50% of all landfill waste in New Zealand. This is waste on a grand scale, waste of resources, waste of consumption, waste of energy. There must be a better way. Join our experts to hear how some construction sites are managing their waste to reduce this statistic and Sustainable Business Network's advice to the sector.

Circular economy perspective to designing out waste in the construction sector

James Griffin, General Manager Projects and Advisory, Sustainable Business Network

The best way to reduce waste is not to create it in the first place. James will explain how Circular Economy thinking can reduce C&D waste.

Waste plans – the whys and the whats

Kirsty Quickfall, Resource Recovery Adviser, Hamilton City Council

Under the newly adopted Waste Management and Minimisation bylaw, building site waste plans will need to set out how waste will be minimised on site. This will encourage project owners to think about waste early in the planning process, and plan for waste reduction in anticipation of an increase in waste levy rates. Kirsty will cover the new requirements in this area.
