What happens to each component after it is no longer required? Can you Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose or Recycle the component? What is
international practice compared to Australia? What impact does your assessment have on the design of the Project? Complete your assessment and then
submit it and explore the issues of waste minimisation in design with your peers on the discussion board.
Use the template provided to consider waste management options for each component of the Project (minimum 25 rows).
