C&D Debris Recycling

A waste composition study done by Metro (the regional government for the Portland metropolitan area), in 1994, determined that nearly 26% of the region?s disposed waste is generated by construction (including remodeling) and demolition debris (C&D) of structures such as residential and commercial buildings and roadways ? approximately 256,000 tons out of a total of about 1,000,000 tons. Much of this waste is easily reused or recycled, so it makes sense to target it for waste reduction and recycling.
