Construction & Demolition (C&D) Materials Reuse and Recycling Workshop

at Cape Cod Cooperative Extension

You can help RecyclingWorks develop best management practices for building professionals to increase recycling and reuse of construction and demolition materials. RecyclingWorks is coordinating a stakeholder engagement process that will inform the development of this guidance. RecyclingWorks is partnering with many associations, including The Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, to learn about reuse and recycling of these materials from the experience of transfer station directors, contractors, architects, C&D haulers and processors, salvage outlets, and others involved in the C&D waste stream.

We invite you to attend a workshop on C&D materials on Cape Cod. This workshop will focus on local opportunities to increase reuse and recycling of these materials. Topics for discussion include:

  • Reuse: Connecting with salvage outlets to capture reusable materials.
  • Source Separation: What materials make sense to separate on-site and at what project scale?
  • C&D Processing: Best practices for capturing high-value materials at comingled facilities

Please attend to share your experience with these or other issues related to diverting construction and demolition materials from disposal.

To RSVP, please email David Quinn: dquinn@barnstablecounty.org.
