Waste Stream

Construction & Demolition

Demolition waste and construction materials don’t have to be considered refuse. Instead, they can be reused to build something new.

Fast Facts

Give debris a second life

Americans throw away approximately 3.7 trillion pounds of construction debris every year. Yet a majority of construction and demolition debris that gets tossed could be recycled. This not only helps you operate more sustainably but can also result in cost savings for your business. Some common materials you should be recycling include metal, cardboard, wood, and plastic.

  • Recycled wood is used in furniture and even bedding for pets
  • Crushed concrete paves the way for new roads
  • Plastic debris shows up in new bottles, playground equipment, and even clothing
