Managing Construction Waste: Recycling from Floor to Ceiling

  • Shaw Contract 853 Broadway, 3rd Floor New York, NY 10003 USA (map)

534 million tons of construction and demolition (C&D) debris were generated in the United States in 2014—more than twice the amount of municipal solid waste. New York City aims to send zero waste to landfills by 2030, and it is vital that the construction industry implement solutions to meet these goals. Urban Green Council’s three-part event series will explore innovative practices that will shape the future of Construction Waste Management.
Managing Construction Waste: Recycling from Floor to Ceiling focuses on the pre-demolition removal practices that are key to managing carpet and ceiling tile, highly-recyclable materials. Join us as experts in carpet and ceiling tile recycling discuss cost-effective practices in manufacturing, recycling and writing effective specifications for these materials.
