The treatment and disposal of construction waste has grown in emphasis over recent years due to European and other legislation and the concerns regarding the limited availability of landfill sites.

EPIC and its members take this issue very seriously and the manufacturers within EPIC have conducted extensive research and trials to identify all the potential ‘end of life’ options that are practical, feasible and economic.

This section summarises the latest position concerning insulated panels that are entering the waste stream or are at the end of their life and covers the available options for end of life disposal. The information has been gathered into EPIC’s Guide on the ‘Identification and Disposal of Insulated Panels used in Buildings’.
