In 1996, 136 million tons of construction & demolition (C&D) debris was generated - 57% by non-residential construction. Most of this waste could have been recycled, thereby reducing the demand for virgin materials. Waste reduction by recycling C&D debris can also turn a cost into a savings for builders. Instead of paying haulers to dispose of C&D debris from a job site, the materials can be sold to a recycling facility, or given to a recycling facility in exchange for free hauling. Learn the best practices in waste management, how to turn trash into profit, and how to earn LEED credits and help the environment at the same time.

Objectives

  • Describe demolition and construction waste technologies and strategies
  • Understand the economics of waste management
  • Calculate the reduction in waste needed for LEED projects
  • Describe how waste reduction was achieved using case studies
