Lunch and LEED: Construction and Demolition Recycling


Want to know what it takes to develop and implement a construction and waste demolition management plan? David Hertzberg can show you how!

This Lunch and LEED session will cover aspects of the process to reduce construction and demolition waste disposed of in landfills and incineration facilities - by recovering, reusing, and recycling materials. Attendees will learn what it takes to develop and implement a construction and demolition waste management plan. This type of plan includes: establishing waste diversion goals and strategies; determining where structural and non-structural materials will be taken and how recycling facilities will process such materials; and providing a final report detailing all major waste streams generated, including disposal and diversion rates.

Finally, David Hertzberg will explain how 'Alternative daily cover' (ADC) does not qualify as material diverted from disposal(s), and how one can include materials destined for ADC in the calculations as waste. Land-clearing debris is not considered construction, demolition, or renovation waste that can contribute to waste diversion.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand recycling flow
  2. Learn how the USGBC plays a part in construction waste recycling
  3. Understand current and future market challenges
  4. Learn how construction waste recycling can be a closed loop system

This session will provide GBCI CE credit for attendees.
