This is the Construction Waste That Your Business Must Be Recycling

Construction and demolition waste can take many different forms, depending on the job that you’re undertaking.

This kind of rubbish makes up a huge portion of the waste produced in Australia every single year. Thankfully though, much of it can be recycled.

Here’s the construction waste that we can help you recycle at Sydney City Rubbish.


Brick waste is common on most commercial and residential building sites, as well as all manner of demolition jobs.

We’re able to remove your brick waste and ensure it’s reused responsibly and does not end up in landfill.

Intact bricks can be used on your other building projects, while broken bricks and rubble can be utilised as brick chips or road base.

Timber and Joinery

Timber and other wood waste can be recycled, as long as it isn’t treated.

Untreated wood waste can be turned into mulch, used as firewood, used in landscaping projects and much more.

However, treated wood can also be reused in other ways. Utilising treated wood on your other projects or repurposing it into useful items is a great way to avoid pollution.

Concrete and Rubble

Concrete and rubble can be used in many landscaping projects, as filler, to cover walkways or even as a base for pavement and paving.

Older concrete can also be crushed up and turned into aggregate, which is then able to be used in new concrete.

By ensuring this happens, you’ll be preventing concrete from ending up in landfill, which is a bad result for the environment.

At Sydney City Rubbish, we’re ready to remove your concrete as part of a comprehensive Sydney rubbish removal service.

Scrap Metal

Scrap metal is present on most Sydney building strip out and demolition sites.

There are obviously many different types of metal, but thankfully virtually all of these materials can be recycled in one way or another.

Steel, copper, iron, aluminium and heavy metals like lead are just some of the common construction waste metals that can be recycled.

A professional Sydney rubbish removal company like Sydney City Rubbish will help you ensure that you’re recycling as much metal waste as possible.


Plasterboard is one material that is highly recyclable.

This is because the main ingredient in plasterboard is gypsum, which is a naturally occurring substance.

Therefore, it’s essential that you hire a Sydney rubbish removal company to responsibly recycle your plasterboard.

The environment will thank you.
