C&D debris is uncontaminated solid waste resulting from construction, building remodeling, repair, deconstruction or demolition operations. It is estimated that it is the source for 30% of all waste sent to the municipal landfills. Much of the waste could be usable. We pay three times for materials that aren't used or recycled: once when we buy materials, second for disposal and third time when we purchase new materials to replace those that could have been reused.
