EPA: Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris

This portion of the U.s. EPA website provides information on reducing and recycling construction and demolition (C&D) debris.

The "Where You Live" section describes regional and state programs. The "Reducing C&D Debris" section describes a wide range of C&D debris reduction techniques by methodology (reduce, reuse, recycle, and rebuy) and by material. The "What You Can Do" section gives practical advice on reducing and preventing C&D debris when planning a construction/remodeling project. The "Publications" section lists recent publications, case studies, and factsheets. Finally, the "Related Links" section offers a wealth of relevant links on C&D research/funding; green building; and disaster debris.
