Transforming Land Sustainably: The Advantages of Using Inert Waste for Large-Scale Projects

CRL (Commercial Recycling) are excited to be working with Highpost Golf Club near Salisbury on a large land transformation project. Using inert waste tipped onsite by our customers, their current driving range will transformed with the addition of slopes and mounds enclosing and undulating the landscape to enhance their customers’ practice area and overall experience at the club.

As part of this project, we are also opening a brand new inert tipping facility at Highpost Golf Club. This new facility will be fully licensed to accept all inert waste types from individuals and businesses of all sizes. Materials accepted will include:

  • Concrete
  • Rubble
  • Sands
  • Clay
  • Soil
  • Chalk

You can call us on 01202 579579 for more information, the tipping prices and to check if the materials you have will be accepted at the Salisbury inert tipping facility.

The Environmental Impact

The choice to reuse inert waste in any landscaping project, such as the land transformation at Highpost Golf Club, is an environmentally friendly one.

Large construction projects have a considerable impact on the environment. Excessive waste generation, depletion of natural resources, and pollution from conventional construction practices are some of the concerns that need urgent attention. Reusing inert waste, in projects such as this, offers a range of environmental benefits:

  • Waste Diversion: By utilising inert waste, large amounts of construction and demolition waste can be diverted from landfills, reducing the pressure on waste disposal sites and mitigating pollution risks.
  • Conservation of Natural Resources: The use of inert waste reduces the demand for virgin materials like sand, gravel, and stones, preserving natural resources and diminishing the need for resource-intensive extraction processes.
  • Lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Using inert waste reduces energy used, as we aren’t using energy for the production of new materials. Consequently, greenhouse gas emissions associated with manufacturing processes are reduced, contributing to climate change mitigation efforts.

How is Inert Waste Used in Land Transformation Projects?

Inert waste can be used in an array of ways as part of land transformation projects, most commonly, inert waste would be used for:

  • Land Reclamation: Crushed inert materials can be used to fill and reclaim land, preparing it for construction purposes.
  • Infrastructure Construction: Inert waste can serve as a foundation material for roads, bridges, and other infrastructure projects.
  • Landscaping and Beautification: Inert waste materials can be incorporated into landscape design, providing eco-friendly alternatives to conventional decorative elements.
  • Erosion Control: Utilizing inert waste in erosion control measures helps stabilize slopes and prevent soil erosion during and after construction.

Using inert waste in large land transformation projects represents a significant step toward sustainable and eco-friendly construction practices. Reducing waste and conserving natural resources aligns with global efforts to combat environmental challenges. As construction industries continue to embrace greener practices, integrating the use of inert waste with their other processes will play a crucial role in shaping a more sustainable and resilient future for the planet.

If your construction or DIY project is producing inert waste that you need to dispose of then CRL’s new inert facility in Salisbury will be ready to accept waste from 21st August 2023.
