Zero Waste C&D Pilots


BioCycle, March 2010

The Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) received an EPA Resource Conservation Challenge grant for construction and demolition pilots in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, to take place over the next two years. The pilots will strive for zero waste through source reduction, reuse and recycling. As part of the project, NERC will work with construction site managers to develop zero waste materials plans; provide on-site technical assistance; document materials diverted at each location; and develop training tips, implementation tools, fact sheets and case studies.
