DEFRA Minister Lord Henley visited Brighton on 31st March 2011 to find out how we work with builders to reduce and reuse construction waste. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Environment had accepted an invitation to visit us as part of his desire to learn more about recycling “at ground level” and how more waste can be diverted from landfill. We spoke to the minister at length about how DEFRA could put more effort in to promoting wood reuse rather than promoting just wood “downcycling”… the minister was certainly sympathetic.
