about the book

National governments are active in promoting recycling and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. This guide addresses the opportunities at the design stage of a project for minimising the generation of waste by the use of recycled components and materials in buildings. It reviews current experience of designing with recycling in mind, the processes by which components and material can be reclaimed and the opportunities for specifying them in construction work.
