What is Hardfill Waste?

Many homeowners who don’t realize that they can produce a lot of waste during the renovation or construction of their homes want to know what is hardfill waste. Hardfill Waste refers to any material that is not recyclable or biodegradable such as concrete, stones, brick, soil, pavers, sand, rubble, or asphalt, and these are also called “inert waste”. These items are often found piled near driveways and yards after construction projects have been completed.

It is called hardfill waste because these are solid and generally come from natural sources so they should also go to the landfills to fill up holes or gaps or to be soil fillers. When hardfill waste comes fresh from the construction site, these can also be composed of wood, plastics, metals, cartons, papers, and plastics or rubber. But these are not part of the hardfill waste types, these materials must be taken out and go to their proper waste disposal facilities.  

In Christchurch,  we separate the rubbish that can be recycled or reused. After segregation, about 35 percent of the waste will go to recyclables and reusable items. Yet, if we will do more serious segregation, more potential items for recycling can be derived especially from  building waste that comes from home construction projects.
