Sustainable Waste Management for Your Construction Rubbish

construction rubbish

Every construction and demolition project will produce some sort of waste. But it’s what you do with it that matters!

At Sydney City Rubbish, we have plenty of experience in dealing with all sorts of building rubbish and strip-out waste.

We use our rubbish removal trucks to shift large quantities of material efficiently and safely, so that you don’t have to.

And when we do move this waste, ensure that it is always disposed of sustainably where possible. That means either reuse or recycling.

Sustainable waste management for your construction waste is so important, for a number of reasons.

We must do what we can to protect the environment from the dangers of this sort of rubbish, which can cause havoc on natural eco-systems.

Here are just some of the types of rubbish that we remove and how we make sure that they are dealt with responsibly.

Wood Waste

Wood waste is one of the most common types of rubbish we find on any kind of building project, demolition job or office strip-out service.

Thankfully, timber is also one of the most recyclable materials we encounter, so long as it’s not treated wood.

Plenty of wood waste can actually be repurposed and reused on other building projects. Alternatively, it can also be mulched and utilised in gardens or as fire fuel.

Brick, Concrete and Tiles

Brick, concrete and tile waste is more often seen on a strip-out or building demolition project and must be dealt with sustainably.

Too many companies simply dump this type of waste in landfill, where it will languish. It can also cause issues with soil pollution.

However, these materials can be repurposed into filler for road repairs, as well as building a path or other brick-based area.

Metal Waste

Recycling scrap metal is absolutely essential on any construction site.

At Sydney City Rubbish, we have plenty of experience in dealing with old scrap metal. We work with certified facilities to ensure that your metal waste is responsibly recycled.

Whether it’s metal piping, wiring, beams and struts or any other metal, we’ll remove it professionally and safely.

In the end, that makes for a much better result for the environment, and a better financial outcome for your business.


Plaster is another common type of waste that is quite easy to reuse.

The principal component of plaster is gypsum, a naturally occurring resource. When plaster is properly recycled, this gypsum can be used in the manufacturing of new plasterboard.

In the long run, that prevents plaster waste from ending up in landfill or even worse spots, like waterways and parklands.
