The project aims to develop a green procurement strategy for construction and demolition waste in South Africa. The construction and demolition (C&D) waste constitutes one of the largest waste streams that are generated in South Africa. The demand for construction and demolition waste is increasing significantly. In fact, there is a growing body of knowledge that indicates the economic potential of the construction and demolition waste as a resource. However, it seems as if the pace of diversion of the C&D waste is much slower than expected. The latest State of Waste Report indicates that the generation of C&D waste constitutes about 13% of the total general waste that is generated in South Africa. A small fraction (10%) of this waste is diverted for reuse and recycling. This is a worrying trend considering that the Government has made a commitment to support the growth of the secondary materials economy.
