100% waste recycling at St Paul’s Square

Figures received to the end of October from main contractor, Shepherd, show that 100% of the waste removed from English Cities Fund's St Paul’s Square development in Liverpool during construction has been recycled.  This is in excess of targets set by the Considerate Constructors scheme.

All segregated materials (including card, plastics, wood and metal) have been decontaminated where necessary and sold to end users as baled, shredded or graded product.  Much of the residual waste has also been put to good use, with soils, brick and concrete being used as hardcore and plasterboard being shredded for use in agricultural products.

The total waste recycled amounted to over 63,600 kg occupying a volume of over 216 cubic metres.

“Our new sustainability policy document, Capable Sustainable, outlines our commitment to minimising waste on site,” says project  manager, Michael Broadhead.  “Through intelligent management of the supply chain and sorting of any unavoidable waste, we’re lowering the landfill burden at St Paul’s Square.”
