This guidance document aims to inform on the possibilities and requirements related to recycling and reuse of the major waste streams from demolition activities, thus promoting the selection of optimal solutions for recycling and reuse.

The document focuses on the following:

Non-hazardous materials. The document does not describe decontamination or disposal options for hazardous substances. For the report on hazardous substances: M3.4

Reuse and recycling options that do not require intensive sorting. Since this project develops materials on best practices for pre-demolition waste audits with the aim of performing selective demolition (sorting at the source), this document focuses on recycling options that only require limited sorting steps (e.g. magnetic separation) of the material fractions after selective demolition.
