Strip Out Waste Guidelines in Consultation
Waste Guidelines Link
The Better Buildings Partnership has developed the BBP Strip Out Waste Guidelines to assist tenants, building owners and demolition contractors in the procurement and execution of best practice strip out operations. These guidelines include a number of practical tools that can be utilised to procure manage and evidence consistent strip out processes that maximise recovery without compromise to timelines or safety. These guidelines draw on BBP’s extensive expertise, that of its partners and suppliers, and learnings from recent case studies conducted in Sydney with support from Edge Environment and the EPA’s Circulate, Industrial Ecology grants program, that demonstrate that resource recovery of 60-80% is both highly desirable and achievable. BBP members have committed to implementing these guidelines and recovery targets, and are including the principles of these guidelines in their tender processes. Strip out waste industry stakeholders are encouraged to acquaint themselves with this guideline.
