Title:RCRA in Focus: Construction, Demolition, and Renovation
Document Date:09/01/2004
Description:This document discusses the regulatory status of construction and demolition (C&D) waste and ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle C&D waste. Most C&D debris is nonhazardous and is not regulated by EPA. However, many states have specific definitions of C&D debris that effectively determine what materials are allowed to be disposed of in nonhazardous waste landfills, C&D landfills, or incinerators. Although EPA does not regulate most C&D waste, they encourage efforts to keep the hazardous components of C&D waste out of landfills to conserve natural resources and protect human health and the environment.
