The National Demolition Association Announces C&D Debris Recycling Symposium

The National Demolition Association, Doylestown, Pa., has announced plans for an inaugural International Symposium on the state of C&D recycling to be held in Chicago in the fall of 2009.

"This gathering of government regulators, industry professionals and members of academia is designed to provide a forum to discuss ways to increase the amount of construction waste and demolition debris being recycled globally," says Michael Taylor, CAE, executive director of the National Demolition Association.

"In addition to dealing with such diverse issues as stormwater management, diesel emissions, the impact of our activity on global warming and hazardous materials handling, the association wants to maximize the reuse of the commodities generated on our project sites every day. We also want the event to help develop sound public policy to expand opportunities to expand the C&D waste stream," he says.

The National Demolition Association will partner with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Federation of Demolition Contractors in the U.K., the European Demolition Association, and numerous other organizations involved with recycling and construction.

The International Symposium on the state of C&D recycling will be a gathering of federal, state and local regulators with companies involved in the demolition and recycling process to discuss ways to develop environmentally sound and economically viable ways to recycle C&D waste, according to the association. Sessions will cover topics such as current generation and recycling rates, market development, new technology, administrative barriers and economic disincentives to successful recycling.

More information about the event will soon be available online at the National Demolition Association’s Web site www.demolitionassociation.com.
