Recycling & LEED

C&D Recycling

Contractor's Disposal has partnered with local companies to provide Construction Demolition debris recycling.

 

In 2019 We sent over 20 MILLION pounds of material to local recycling centers!

 

C&D debris is non-hazardous, non-contaminated solid waste that originates from construction, repair, remodeling, and/or demolition projects.

 

Please watch this video to learn more about what we do.

 

 

The debris is brought to a local C&D Single Stream Recycling facility and there it is sorted and recycled. Recycling C&D debris is great for the environment as this debris accounts for about 30% of all solid waste in the U.S. and most of this waste goes to landfills. As a result, C&D debris recycling conserves valuable landfill space and reduces resource consumption. In addition to the environmental benefits, C&D debris recycling saves money and keeps tipping fees low.

 

Contractor's Disposal is not only committed to providing the highest quality service and support, but also helping out when we can and proactively looking for ways to be competitive with price. We believe our approach to waste recycling is a great value to our clients and supports our efforts to provide first class service.
