Regardless of whether you are taking on a DIY project at home or working on a large-scale construction project, dealing with the disposal of construction waste such as bricks, cement and rubble can be difficult. This is partially due to how heavy these materials can be, not to mention the vast quantities of materials which can often need to be removed, making this notoriously difficult for the average joe to transport.

rubble and building waste

Did you know that construction waste is responsible for around 61% of the 222.9 million tonnes of waste that is produced each year in the UK? Without proper disposal plans in place, you can quickly find yourself with a mountain of construction waste to get rid of. Unfortunately, some people think that construction waste disposal is going to be a hassle and expensive, so instead they resort to fly tipping. A whopping 56,000 reports of fly-tipping are reported year on year, all of which are directly involving construction waste. 

Construction waste disposal doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming or expensive. With One Waste Clearance, it is quite literally the opposite. By getting in touch with one of our team members, we are able to get the ball rolling and plan your disposal before your project even starts. Ensuring that any construction waste is appropriately disposed of in an effective manner. Read our helpful tips below for more. 

How should you dispose of construction waste?


Wherever possible we recommend reusing building materials. For instance, old bricks, metals, ceramics, tiles and building materials can be used again for other projects. Old bricks are often in demand as they can be used for renovation projects within conservation areas. They could also be reused to create a garden path or bbq. Leftover broken construction materials such as slabs, rubble, bricks etc can be used for hard-core. 


Any material leftover that can not be repurposed elsewhere on the construction project needs to be disposed of correctly.
