GreenCape has been working with companies to showcase examples of the successful reuse of builders' rubble and demolition waste in the construction industry.

The 15 ha site of the new Woolworths Distribution Centre in Montague Gardens originally contained buildings which had to be removed. A quick demolition would have generated more than 16 000 cubic metres of mixed waste, which would have cost R12.3 million to landfill, with transport costs exceeding R64 000.
