Legal Requirements for Construction and Demolition Waste Transportation

Within QLD, The Environmental Protection Act 1994 (the Act) states that we all have a general environmental duty (GED). This means that we are all responsible for the actions we take that affect the environment.

The Environmental Protection (Waste Management) Regulation 2000 states under Section 24 – Responsibilities of Transporter that “While transporting the waste in Queensland, the transporter must carry a document containing the information received from the generator under section 23.”

Within NSW, Section 143 of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 mandates that waste must be transported to a place that can lawfully accept it. Both the owner of the waste and the transporter are legally responsible for ensuring that the waste is transported to a lawful place. Failure to do so may result in fines and penalties for both parties. To avoid these consequences, owners of waste must demonstrate due diligence and take reasonable precautions to prevent such offenses.

Minimising Environmental Impact of C&D Waste

Everyone at All Seasons Skip Hire cares for the environment and if you implement sustainable practices in construction and demolition projects can you significantly reduce the environmental impact of construction and demolition waste. Consider these strategies:

  • Segregate Waste – Separate different types of waste materials on-site to facilitate reuse and recycling. This practice also helps ensure the proper disposal of hazardous materials.
  • Plan for Deconstruction – Incorporate deconstruction planning into the project design to facilitate the reuse and recycling of materials after the structure’s useful life.
  • Use Environmentally Friendly Materials – Opt for sustainable, eco-friendly materials in construction projects, such as green concrete or recycled steel.
