Construction and Demolition (C&D) materials consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. Certain C&D materials can be identified as commodities that can be used in new building projects, thus avoiding the need to mine and process virgin materials.

Examples of C&D materials include:

  • Concrete
  • Wood (from buildings)
  • Asphalt (from roads and roofing shingles)
  • Gypsum (the main component of drywall)
  • Metals
  • Bricks
  • Glass
  • Plastics
  • Salvaged building components (doors, windows, and plumbing fixtures)
  • Trees, stumps, earth, and rock from clearing sites

Businesses, municipalities, counties, and state agencies spend considerable amounts of money each year to remodel, remove, or demolish structures. Finding alternatives to disposal can be a sustainable and competitive option.

Reducing and recycling C&D materials conserves landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials, creates jobs, and can reduce overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs.
