Waste Disposal FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right waste disposal company for your job

1. What does waste disposal mean?

Waste disposal is the removal of construction and demolition waste from construction sites. When materials are considered non-recyclable and a risk to both human health and the environment, they are disposed of in nearby landfills. Below are construction and demolition wastes that you can dispose of:

  • Asbestos (or any asbestos-containing materials)
  • Asphalt
  • Brick, drywall and masonry block
  • Carpets
  • Porcelain, concrete and ceramic
  • Mirrors and tiles
  • Bathroom and Kitchen materials like sinks, bathtubs or toilets
  • Materials containing hazardous elements like lead and mercury
  • Untreated wood (plywoods, particleboards etc.)

2. What are the three methods of waste disposal?

When waste recycling is not possible, here are three methods of waste disposal:

  1. Incineration: For materials that are non-recyclable and are combustible, it will go through thermal treatment. These will be taken to waste incineration plants or wood furnaces with the resulting heat used to generate electricity and heat in buildings.
  2. Chemical-physical and biological treatment: Generally, for wastewater and polluted excavated materials, this treatment aims to remove the pollutants from the waste for safe landfilling. It's an effective method for hazardous waste disposal.
  3. Landfills: Non-recyclable waste that cannot go through incineration will be deposited in landfills. Residues from the thermal treatment will also be sent here. But before disposal, these materials and residues must follow the landfilling requirements and regulations.

3. What construction waste can be recycled?

Below are the types of construction waste that can be recycled:

  • Plastics
  • Wood
  • Plasterboard
  • Glass
  • Bricks and tiles
  • Packaging
  • Concrete, brick, asphalt, soils and stones

4. Why is the recycling of construction waste important?

Mainly, waste recycling is important because it will benefit the environment. Recycling construction materials decreases the consumption of our natural resources, therefore saving huge amounts of energy. Since we now do not opt to simply dump our wastes in landfills, recycling has significantly decreased the wastes in landfills. Economically, we have benefited from recycling construction and demolition waste through reduction of costs. This could be the reduced costs when disposing and transporting waste and how recycling costs less than disposing of the material.


5. What is a disposal fee?

For disposal of waste, estimated fees in urban areas in Australia range from $45 to $105 per tonne. Meanwhile, rural areas are charged around $42 to $102 per tonne. Green waste, clean soil, bricks and concrete are $40/cubic metre while recycling mix, both heavy and light are $100/cubic metre.
