1.65 A National Economic Approach to Improved Management of Construction and Demolition Waste

A holistic national approach is required to handle the growing issue of construction and demolition (C&D) waste management in Australia. Through this project, the discrepancies and inconsistencies related to C&D waste management regulations in each jurisdiction will be identified and recommendations for harmonising reforms made. The project will also develop a case for creating a marketplace to trade waste across sectors and jurisdictions. The project will deliver an innovative integrated supply chain model based on a cradle-to-cradle (lifecycle) approach that will streamline C&D waste management processes, while effectively reducing/reusing/recycling C&D waste. A key deliverable will be recommendations to aid national harmonisation of the economic factors and drivers/barriers that govern C&D waste management in a market-driven economy.
