Managing Construction Waste: Closed Loop Drywall Recycling

  • LENDLEASE 200 Park Avenue, Floor 9 New York, New York 10166 (map)

This results in about 10 million tons of gypsum wallboard debris generated each year; but only 5 percent is consistently diverted. This leaves a huge opportunity for improvement. Join Urban Green Council for this energetic round table discussion where waste management experts will share their experiences piloting closed loop drywall recycling in New York City.
