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.
