Construction and demolition (C&D) materials consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. C&D materials often contain bulky, heavy materials, such as concrete, wood, metals, glass, and salvaged building components.
Reducing and recycling C&D materials conserves landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials, creates jobs, and can reduce overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs. For more information from the State of Vermont, click here.
Reuse If you have items that might be of value, please contact someone listed here to see if they might be interested.
Recycling C&D waste can be recycled. Ask your contractor or waste hauler to use a recycler rather than a landfill. The Agency of Natural Resources maintains a web site that lists many other avenues for recycling, visit www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/wastediv/CanD/main.htm.
An addition to construction debris recycling options in the area is Hammond Grinding & Recycling Inc., (603) 523-4353.
