Construction and Demolition Waste Update

The Waster has updated the Construction & Demolition Waste page at “The Landfill Site”.

In tonnage terms construction and demolition waste is the UK’s largest waste stream accounting for 90 Million tonnes of material per year in England and Wales alone.

Whereas three years ago when the page was last comprehensively updated, construction and demoltion waste recycling was seen as just that, some now view it as part of the emerging green philosophy of “sustainable construction”.

Meanwhile the Waster says: “Maybe if the civil engineers really get the hang of all this “sustainability” they will improve their poor public image as demonstrated in this joke”:

Three engineering students were discussing the possible designers of the human body.One said, “It had to be a mechanical engineer, look at all the joints.”
Another said, “No, it had to be an electrical engineer, the nervous system is just a marvel of millions of electrical connections.”
The third said, “Actually, it was a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline right through a recreational area?”

    Trust you to get the joke wrong. The punch line is who else would put the recreational area between two sewers. The punch line you have used gives me some concern for your knowledge of anatomy….

    Keep up the good work.
