c&d material

Construction & Demolition (C&D) materials consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. These materials can come from large construction projects or from demolition work on your own home and can include concrete, lumber, and brick.

Benefits of Sustainable C&D Practices
  1. Waste Reduction: Implementing recycling and reuse strategies can significantly reduce the volume of waste sent to landfills.
  2. Resource Conservation: Using recycled materials and adopting efficient construction techniques helps preserve natural resources.
  3. Energy Efficiency: Sustainable practices often involve the use of energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy sources, reducing the carbon footprint.
  4. Cost Savings: Sustainable practices can lead to long-term cost savings through reduced material costs, energy consumption, and waste disposal fees.
  5. Improved Health and Safety: Reducing pollution and hazardous materials on C&D sites enhances the health and safety of workers and surrounding communities.
