Did You Know?

About 8,000 lbs of waste is thrown into the landfill during the construction of a 2,000 foot home. The objectives of construction waste management are to divert construction and demolition debris from landfill and give it a higher value purpose.

For example, recyclable and recovered wood-based materials can be directed to various manufacturing processes, while reusable materials are diverted to the appropriate use.
