Our Construction Waste Recycling Services

Bywaters are experts in handling your construction and demolition (C&D) waste from projects of all sizes. Whether you’re a sole trader completing small projects, or a large company working on skyscrapers in the city, we can manage your waste safely and sustainably, in line with our green initiatives.

We recycle all forms of construction waste including plastic, wood, plasterboard and most commonly recycled inert materials such as concrete, bricks and stones. We’ll also manage your hazardous waste, like treated timber, concrete additives and contaminated soils.

Construction waste is taken to our specialist facility in East London where we have a dedicated recovery facility, especially for C&D waste. This involves trommel screens which are mechanical screening machines that separate any fine waste from bulkier items such as bricks and wood offcuts. We also have a tipping service for construction waste, which is also handled sustainably.

Construction Waste Recycling FAQs

Construction recycling is beneficial for your business as it costs less to recycle waste than send it to landfill, and demonstrates corporate social responsibility while also improving your company’s awareness of sustainable work practices. It also ensures you are in compliance with waste regulations, as falling to adhere to them can land businesses with a penalty charge. Nearly all of your construction waste can be recycled, reused or recovered, so it helps the planet by minimising greenhouse gases, eliminating landfill waste and reducing energy consumption.

While it can be hard to avoid creating construction waste during a project, you can reduce how much you produce by planning ahead before the work starts. This allows you to figure out the volume of materials needed. You should also avoid over-ordering, though if this does happen, try to reuse or donate the leftover materials if they’re in good condition.

Broken glass can’t be recycled with your C&D waste, as it’s not easily broken down. Some plastics which release harmful substances when processed can’t be included either, while old paint cans contain dangerous contaminants, preventing them from being safely recycled.

Construction waste can be reused in a variety of ways. For instance, masonry is crushed to make road bases, appliances such as sinks and baths can be refitted if they are still in good condition, and metals can be smelted into new products. Any leftover, undamaged bricks are perfect for new developments, and recovered glass can be reused in decorative materials, or as insulation and abrasives.
