Construction and demolition (C&D) debris is a varied solid waste stream from the construction, renovation and demolition of buildings. C&D waste is not federally regulated, except to the extent that solid waste landfills must follow a few basic standards outlined in the Federal Register (40 CFR part 257). States therefore, have the primary role in defining and regulating the management of C&D debris. Building demolition waste can include the following discarded material: concrete, drywall, plaster, plywood, laminates, steel, aluminum, copper siding, doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, shingles and more. Many of those involved in generating C&D debris can save money and landfill space by reusing, recycling, donating or otherwise reducing the amount of C&D debris they throw away.
