Recommendation

Encourage public infrastructure waste minimisation and designing for deconstruction

Section: 6.5. Moving to a circular economy

How

This should include the following steps:

  1. Require all infrastructure projects to incorporate waste-minimisation plans in procurement and design objectives and use recycled products where feasible.
  2. Encourage prefabrication and standardised options as part of infrastructure delivery.
  3. Investigate the efficacy of a resource exchange mechanism for infrastructure projects, through a partnership between government and the construction sector.
