General C&D Debris Information


C&D Debris Recycling
Wastes from new construction, renovation and demolition projects generates about 25% percent of solid waste volume. Much of that material ends up in landfills, which is a problem because:
  • some current landfills are reaching capacity and will close in the near future,
  • locating new landfills is a tough job and takes years to accomplish, and
  • costs of landfilling goes up each year.
Builders and demolition contractors can save money and help the environment by recycling various components of construction and demolition waste rather than disposing of this material. Tremendous opportunities exist for reusing and recycling C&D waste. For additional information, check below under Other Resources.
