Hire, reclaim and reuse scheme combats construction waste
A scheme to combat construction and demolition waste (CDW), of which the UK generates over 60 million tonnes per year, has been introduced by Dura Products, intended to address the issue of construction waste sent to landfill.
It enables certain types of recycled plastic kerbing and drainage solutions to be rented for a fixed length of time before being reclaimed and used again on future projects. The scheme aims to keep polymer waste in use for as long as possible to create a multiple recycling loop system that has a compounding positive effect on the environment.
The scheme should be suitable for short-term construction projects as it will provide an eco-friendly solution to waste produced by the demolition of temporary infrastructure. Instead of discarding the materials, units will be recovered and re-used.
