Event Details

Reducing Landfill - War on Construction Waste!

Inspired by the ABC's War on Waste programs, the AGDF believes residential building waste should be the next focus for resource management of construction materials and waste. Our next Main Event will tackle this issue and include an interactive workshop focusing on the issue of residential building waste. The conference line up will include speakers from Government, local councils, waste management industries, successful recyclers and industry innovators. 

Karen Greaves, from Aecom / Lendlease, will be facilitating a workshop which will utilise one of Queensland's largest residential community land development projects as the case study and catalyst to explore change.

  • understand the latest in prefabrication and design practice
  • contribute to a real project scenario where practical ideas will be developed
  • hear of success stories and industry challenges
  • learn how you can implement substantial differences on your projects 
  • network with professionals involved in best practice implementation
  • earn up to 8 CPD points for attendance (conditions apply).
