Reducing waste and our contribution to landfill

Create a re-use/recycle strategy for the life cycle of buildings

Appreciating that demolitions, refurbishments and new buildings are a constant at Universities, I think we should create a process to ensure we're recycling and re-using as much as we can of buildings throughout this process. This would involve: demolition works being geared towards recycling as much as possible of the building materials so they can be re-used or recycled into new building materials, and also creating our new buildings out of as much recycled materials as possible.
