Workshops on recycled materials for civil works
Author: Ryan Collins
Utilising recycled materials such as concrete, bricks, tiles and asphalt has become a standard civil engineering practice in NSW. Making use of these materials reduces the need for mining raw materials, makes civil projects more sustainable and can save businesses money.
The Use of Recycled Materials for Pavements, Earthworks and Drainage training course, supported by NSW EPA, will be conducted at several locations in the Sydney Metropolitan area and in regional New South Wales in 2013. On successful completion of the course, participants will:
- have an improved understanding of the benefits of using recycled materials in - civil construction
- have a working knowledge of relevant legislative requirements and need for conformance by all stakeholders involved in the production and use of recycled materials
- be able to supervise and/or perform the required testing to ensure compliance with both Roads and Maritime Services (formally RTA) and NSW EPA requirements
- receive credit for appropriate units of competency from the Certificate IV in Civil Construction depending on skills, experience and knowledge of participants.
