Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling

- Much of the waste stream in the U.S. is made up of construction and demolition waste

- Most C&D waste ends up in landfills, despite the fact that a huge portion of these types of debris are
  reusable or recyclable

- C&D waste is made up of the materials used or created in the process of construction, renovation or
   demolition of structures ( residential or commercial buildings, roads, bridges, etc)

-C&D debris is usually non-hazardous

- This type of waste is a serious issue in the United States due to the volume of debris that ends up in
   solid waste landfills, creating the potential for ground water contamination

- Every year less land becomes available for the disposal of solid waste

- Choosing to recycle C&D waste can help save natural resources

- The most common waste materials that are potentially recyclable by construction companies and
   builders include wood, paint, carpet, plastic and metal, among other items

- Demolition contractors or construction companies can help in recycling these types of items, using
  any of the following three methods:

1) Mixed Material Collection (recyclable items are moved from the demolition or construction site and
    sorted at the appropriate facility. They are then sent to be processed and recycled. 

2) Source Separation (items are separated into categories at the job site and then send to processors
   to be recycled. These categories can include wood, metal, plastic, etc)

3) On-Site Processing (items are processed at the job site and are immediately prepared for reuse)

- The recycled materials that come from building and demolition sites have many different uses,
   including reuse for building, fuel sources, mulch, etc.

- Not only is C&D recycling highly beneficial for the environment, but it can also help to save a
  company money. This type of recycling can decrease many costs during a specific job, such as
  disposal costs,construction materials costs, transportation costs, labor costs (since less materials are
  being handled), and the cost of needing new materials for landscaping.

Building Green from the Start

-  Builders can do more than make sure that the waste at their job sites is recycled. They can ensure
   that each project is built to be green!

-  Constructing as well as operating any kind of building requires the use of energy and materials. This
    leads to large amounts of waste

-  How these buildings are built can greatly affect the ecosystems on earth in many ways

-  More and more builders are choosing to “build green” as the impact of new construction takes its toll
   on the environment

- Sustainable building means implementing more resource-efficient ways of construction, renovation,
   operation and demolition

-  Green building can be accomplished in many ways. Some examples include:

            1) Building with materials that have a less negative effect on the environment (recycled material,
                 biodegradable material, durable material, non toxic material)

            2) Reducing waste during construction, demolition or remodeling

            3) Designing buildings that are healthy for the occupants and use energy more efficiently
