Welcome to the Construction Recycling Alliance’s website. The construction industry is responsible for producing one third of the UK’s total waste every year – some 120 million tonnes. It is estimated that 85% of this waste can be reduced, reused or recycled.
The Construction Recycling Alliance is an umbrella organisation that represents companies within the construction industry who are dedicated to reducing, reusing and recycling unwanted material. In joining the CRA each member adheres to the following pledge:
‘We are committed to reducing, reusing and recycling waste material generated by our construction related operations. We pledge to maximise reuse and recycling rates wherever possible by utilising the latest methods and technologies available. We seek to comply with all guidelines and regulations relating to recycling within the construction industry and regularly review our corporate policies and procedures to ensure adherence.’
The CRA supports its members by sharing innovative recycling techniques, disseminating guidelines and regulations as well as liaising with policy makers at local, regional and national levels.
Our website includes information about the CRA, its members, how to join and the latest recycling news and information. There is also a facility to subscribe to our regular newsletter – ‘Construction Recycling Journal’ (CRJ).
