Reused construction products
The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, suggests that ‘reused construction products’ are:
'Construction products that can be extracted from the waste stream and used again without further processing, or with only minor processing, that does not alter the nature of the construction product (e.g. cleaning, cutting, fixing to other construction products).'
