I’m just reviewing documents for an interiors fitout project at the moment and I’m very impressed by the work of the architect and builder in recycling on the project.
Of the 2518.97kg of waste produced on the building site only 23.4kg went to landfill. Everything else was either reused or recycled.
The 23.4kg of waste was solely made up from builders lunches and consumables.
This shows that San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom’s construction waste recycling target of 75% is very achievable.
