ABSTRACT
The article presents its author's view on the rapid expansion of construction and demolition recycling as more architects and owners support sustainable building practices. Recycling is almost always a key element and more contractors are offering their own "green building" services while processors are recycling everything from wallboard to roofing and haulers are adding recycling as a new service. The realities of the waste hauling business don't always jibe with the priorities of sustainable building and recycling.
