    Hi All,

    in the process of lifting concrete from my garden to lay a new patio. i have massive amounts of concrete waste now as a result. what is the best way to get rid of it. is it skip, can it be crushed to make hardcore, so saves me money on buying mot 1.

    any help appreciated.

    pic attached for reference, bulk of it (90%) is the large chunks at the back, with smaller amounts of the small rubble near my hand.

    thanks

    We have a local waste/hardcore company who provide a free tip for material that they crush to make hardcore. You just take it along and drop it in their skip. You could crush your own but it can be hard work if you’ve got loads. I got rid of about 15 trailers full :eek:

    If you've got lots a grab lorry will be cheaper than a skip, or bag it up and take to the local tip

    Could you dig a hole in the garden and bury it?

    Considered just doing 30mm of this rubble then 70mm hardcore on top. Any idea if I can do this?

    If you take it to the tip, first check that they allow it.
    Inert waste is generally limited now, my local area only allows 10 bags per year per house or you pay for it.
    That's bags about the size of a 15kg dogfood bag, although I part fill them so I can carry them and count them as 1/3 of a bag.
