Title Construction site waste - From onsite sorting to the processing centres
Original title Déchets de chantier - Du tri sur site aux centres de traitement [in French]
Bibliographic information July-Aug. 2007, No.98, p.28-29. Illus.
Abstract From 1 July 2002, only inert waste that cannot be further treated or usefully converted is accepted in landfills in France. As a consequence, construction enterprises need to limit their production of waste and resort to on-site sorting in order to lower the cost of landfilling. This article presents an example of how to organize waste streams on a construction site.
