Construction & Demolition Waste


Construction and Demolition Waste (C&D) waste is waste material generated by the demolition of roads, buildings, and other structures. C&D waste typically consists of mostly inert materials, such as concrete, brick, waste lumber, plaster, sheet rock, roofing materials, ceramic plumbing fixtures, etc.
Because C&D waste is mostly inert materials, C&D landfills do not have the same requirements for construction as MSW landfills. For this reason, C&D landfills are not permitted to accept household garbage or other MSW. MSW, hazardous wastes, furniture, waste tires, appliances, fluorescent lighting and mercury containing devices must be removed from a structure before it is demolished.
