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 hosting three large stakeholder meetings across the state to learn about the experience of contractors, architects, C&D haulers and processors, salvage outlets, and others involved in the C&D waste stream with reuse and recycling of these materials. The first multi-stakeholder meeting was held on June 23 in Boston.
The second multi-stakeholder meeting will be held on September 22 at the MassDEP Central Regional Office in Worcester. 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 scale of a project?
- C&D Processing: Best practices for capturing high-value materials at comingled sorting facilities
Please attend to share your experience with these or other issues related to diverting construction and demolition materials from disposal. Refreshments will be provided.
RSVP: Email email@example.com or call 888-254-5525. Please let us know which event you plan to attend, your name, business, title, email, and phone.
