The recent Queensland Government Recycling and Waste Report states that Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste has increased in 2018 greater than Queensland’s population growth. Construction and demolition waste (C&D) are non-putrescible waste arising from construction or demolition activity. It may include materials such as concrete, asphalt, bricks, treated timber and steel. A total of 10.9 million tonnes of headline wastes (municipal; commercial and industrial; and construction and demolition) were reported in 2017–18—an increase of 1.1 m tonnes from 2016–17. Of this figure, approximately 5.3 million tonnes of C&D waste were reported, with a significant 2,592,287 tonnes unrecovered and disposed at landfill. https://www.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0021/93711/recycling-waste-qld-report-2018.pdf
