USGBC Massachusetts Chapter Residential Green Building Committee
C&D Materials Discussion on Agenda
Join the USGBC Massachusetts Residential Green Building Committee, RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts, and Boston Building Resources for a conversation about increasing reuse and recycling of construction and demolition (C&D) materials. This will be the main topic on the agenda for the October Meeting of the USGBC Residential Green Building Committee.
RecyclingWorks is developing guidance on how to divert C&D materials from landfills. We would like to hear from building professionals and others involved in the construction industry about your experience with reuse and recycling of these materials.
In addition, representatives from the salvage Boston Building Resources will present about donating reusable building materials to their retail store.
Topics for discussion include:
- Reuse: Connecting with salvage outlets, like Boston Building Resources, to reuse 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 commingled facilities
Please attend to learn about and share your experience with these or other issues related to diverting construction and demolition materials from disposal.
