C&D Debris Recycling
Construction & Demolition (C&D) material is targeted for landfill diversion by the City & County of Honolulu and the Neighbor Island counties because of the significant amount generated. Various county studies showed in 1995, over 30% of the waste generated (or 600,000 tons/year) was estimated to be C&D material.
Sustainable Management of Construction and Demolition Materials. EPA promotes a Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) approach that identifies certain C&D materials as commodities that can be used in new building projects.
Sustainable Materials Management Options for Construction and Demolition Debris (2018). This document summarizes various reports produced by EPA since 2012 to help practitioners, regulators, and other stakeholders manage CDD in a manner that is protective of human health and the environment.
Industrial and Construction and Demolition (C&D) Landfills . EPA's minimum technical criteria that industrial landfills must meet.
State and Local Government Construction and Demolition (C&D) Materials Measurement Reports. A collection of reports showing state-wide C&D materials amounts that were disposed and/or recycled for recent years. Data is not available for all states.
Minimizing Construction & Demolition Waste
Historically, Hawaii's primary solid waste management option has been disposal in landfills. With shortages of landfill sites and stricter federal government regulations (40 CFR 258 "Subtitle D") requiring a significant upgrading of waste disposal facilities, the state legislature directed the Department of Health to evaluate solid waste management practices in the state and develop a statewide plan. The result of the study was the 1991.
