Construction and Demolition Waste
Construction and Demolition (C & D) Waste is made up of all wastes arising from construction, renovation and demolition activities, such as rubble, bricks and tiles. The construction and demolition industry is one of the largest producers of waste in Ireland.
C & D waste generation has been growing with the increase of the construction activities in Ireland. It was assumed that 500,000 tonnes was generated in the South East region in 2003.
