Separation of construction and demolition waste

Under article 8.8 of the Building Decree 2012, waste must be properly separated during construction or demolition. Depending on the amount of construction and demolition waste, in accordance with paragraph 1 of article 8.9, requirements are to be specified for separating waste materials into categories and for their (temporary) storage and disposal.

It is expected that Article 4.1 of the Building Decree specifies into what fractions the waste is to be separated.

  • Hazardous waste as defined in chapter 17 of the List of Waste in the European Communities Waste Directive Regulations;
  • Masonry demolition waste, excluding plaster;
  • Bituminous roofing;
  • PAH contaminated materials;
  • Asphalt;
  • Roof gravel;
  • Other waste.

The regulations do not apply if the quantity of waste in a fraction is less than 1 m3.

Article 4.1 also states that the fractions should be stored and disposed of separately on the construction or demolition site. If that is not reasonably possible, the competent authority may give permission for separation at another location.

The requirements in the Building Decree are broadly in line with articles 4.11 and 8.4.1 of the Model Building Regulations.
