Each year, waste from new construction, renovation and demolition projects generates over 20 percent of Vermonts trash. That adds up to 90,000 tons of construction and demolition waste (C&D) which ends up in landfills each year. Additionally, Vermont has some of the highest waste disposal costs in the country. Fees range between $65.00 to over $100.00 per ton and its not expected to get any cheaper. Vermont has created a Construction Waste Reduction web page that describes a range of resources to help prevent and reduce waste during construction, renovation, deconstruction, and demolition and save money in the process.
