Q1 : What is the composition of C&D materials in broad terms?

Since the material will not decompose and is therefore suitable for use as fill in reclamation projects. The non-inert C&D material comprises bamboo, timber, plastics and packaging material. It is collectively called "C&D waste" and is disposed of at landfills.

 
Q2 : What is the split between inert and non-inert C&D materials?
A2 :    The split between inert and non-inert C&D materials is about 9:1.
