"Construction and demolition waste makes up 40–50% of New Zealand’s total waste going to landfill, according to government and council documents." Read more in this BRANZ Level article.

Given the volume of construction waste it makes sense to keep it above ground and reuse it wherever possible. The Whanganui District Council acknowledges construction waste constitutes a large proportion of the waste stream to landfill and is looking at options to reduce this by reuse and recycling.
