WRAP launches online recycled product guide

A new online guide to help the construction industry source products with recycled content has been launched by the Waste and Resources Action Programme.

Over 150 products, ranging from roofing and underlay to bricks, concrete and board, are included in the guide, which will be updated regularly.

"An increasing number of construction clients and planning authorities are setting minimum requirements for recycled content. The recycled product guide is invaluable for identifying possible product substitutions," said David Moon, WRAP’s programme manager for construction procurement.

For each product, the guide gives the percentage of recycled content, its life expectancy and the supplier, as well as the recycled materials used.

The guide is the latest in a number of tools produced by WRAP to help stimulate greater use of recycled materials in the construction industry.

It has also produced guidance to help contractors and clients identify opportunities for increasing the use of recycled content in their projects.
