Construction and Demolition (C&D) Forum: Closing the Loop on C&D Materials

On May 31, 2006, the California Integrated Waste Management Board (now known as CalRecyle) hosted a forum on issues surrounding the procurement, reuse, and marketability of construction and demolition (C&D) waste, as well as the infrastructure for its diversion.

The purpose of this forum was to share information on C&D diversion as it relates to creating infrastructure and markets for C&D materials.

The forum presented two panels of experts:

  1. Local governments' experiences with creating and/or using infrastructure to divert C&D waste.
  2. Industry and local government perspectives on issues related to creating markets for C&D materials and reusing C&D materials on site.

The complete forum transcript is available.


Panel 1: Creating Infrastructure--Learning from the Experts

Panel 2: Closing the Loop on C&D Materials--and Overview of Expansion Opportunities
