According to WRAP the construction industry is responsible for some 120 million tonnes of construction, demolition and excavation waste every year – around one third of all waste in the UK. Over 500 signatories including J&B have now signed up to WRAP’s "Halving Waste to Landfill" commitment. Every Signatory has to sign the following statement of intent "We commit to playing our part in halving the amount of construction, demolition and excavation waste going to landfill by 2012. We will work to adopt and implement standards for good practice in reducing waste, recycling more, and increasing the use of recycled and recovered materials"

In terms of construction, demolition and excavation waste handled by J&B our recovery rate for 2010 was 94% which compares to the industry average of 89% according to WRAP. We work with our Construction Sector customers to increase the quantity and quality of materials we recover and provide them with an effective measurement and reporting systems for the recovery of waste they produce on a site specific basis. This also helps them comply with their obligations for Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs)

All materials taken from co-mingled paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and metal to wood, construction and municipal.
