Construction Material Reuse and Recycling

In addition to our terminal waste diversion, we have an extensive recycling program and a very successful construction waste diversion program.

We work with our partners to reuse and recycle construction waste materials from large capital projects. All construction projects must have site and project-specific construction waste management plans. In 2016, we diverted just over 4.2 million kilograms of construction waste—the equivalent of ten Boeing 747 aircraft. This includes a range of materials such as wood, drywall, metals, asphalt and 2.7 million kg of concrete (61 per cent of recycled materials). This equalled a 96 per cent recycling rate, matching our average over the last five years.
