DEMOLITION MATERIALS RECYCLING
During the construction, renovation, and demolition of homes,
commercial buildings, bridges, highways and other public works
projects, large quantities of waste material are created.
C&D materials may include wood, concrete, glass,
shingles, wallboard, metal, and paint.

stumps and rocks may also be generated.
Recycling and reducing the amount of C&D materials conserve
natural resources, reduce landfill waste, lower expenses for new
building projects, create jobs, and limit water and air
pollution. Over 100
million tons of C&D waste can be generated within a year.
Concrete, asphalt, metal, and wood are the most commonly
recycled materials from construction and demolition.
