Slabs/Rubble

Too Good To Waste

What would you like to reduce, reuse, repair or recycle?

Slabs/Rubble

Give away surplus building materials like broken stone or brick on Gumtree or Freecycle, or ask family, friends or a local community building or gardening project if they need any materials. Why not turn rubble into a rockery, to edge a flower border or as a low wall. Examples can be found at http://myzerowaste.com/2010/09/recycling-rubble-without-a-car/.

According to the Environment Agency around 20 million tonnes of construction, demolition and excavation waste sent to UK landfills in 2010.
