Construction and demolition waste

Construction and demolition waste Construction and demolition waste (C&D) is generated during the construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings or structures. These wastes include materials such as concrete, bricks, wood and lumber, roofing, drywall, landscape and other wastes.

In Minnesota, more than 80 percent of the 1.6 million tons of construction and demolition waste was landfilled in 2013. Much of this waste can be recycled or reused.

Stakeholder meetings

In late 2018, MPCA held four stakeholder meetings across the state for organizations and individuals involved in the construction and demolition sector to provide feedback and suggestions on how to improve the overall construction and demolition system.

Agency staff are compiling notes from these meetings.
