Composite construction and demolition waste consists of rubble and demolition waste that is contaminated with other materials. Consider, for example, stone with polyurethane foam or gypsum board with stucco on it. Woodwork with tiles glued to it is also an example of composite construction and demolition waste.
Because these composite materials cannot be separated from each other, you can hand them in with the construction and demolition waste flow.
How is the waste collected?
You can turn in your construction and demolition waste separately at the waste recycling points. In Eindhoven you can use the Cure pick-up service against payment. Please contact Cure Customer Service for further details.
Asbestos can be handed in at special conditions at the waste recycling point.
You can also rent a big container at a waste collection company.
Construction and demolition waste:
- Construction and demolition waste is material that is released during a renovation or demolition
- A big part of the demolition waste is recycled
- Asbestos can be turned in, under conditions, at the waste recycling point
What happens to the waste?
After collection at the waste recycling point, the composite construction and demolition waste goes to a processing company that further separates the waste. All metal residues are removed from the waste using a large magnet. Using air pressure, vibrations and infrared, among other things, paper and wood are separated from the composite waste. A portion of the composite waste yields recyclable materials that are reused as raw material. Some residual waste also remains which can no longer be separated and is incinerated.
What qualifies as construction and demolition waste?
- Contaminated debris or other material
- Demolition waste combined with polyurethane foam, stucco, sealant edges, etc.
- Sortable waste: wood, metal, gypsum, clean debris, hard plastic
"In sommige gevallen moet u een sloopmelding doen. Informeer bij uw gemeente of u een vergunning nodig hebt of een melding moet doen."
