Abstract:This report builds on the findings of a survey of construction waste carried out by APT Environmental in June 1999 in the Greater Nottingham area. It incorporates a review of current recycled material producers and investigates the potential and current use of inert and non‐inert construction waste arisings. The materials have been categorised under the Environment Agency's classification system. From this, an analysis is carried out and the current market for all the materials is established. The problems in satisfying the potential markets for these arisings are also discussed.
