Pollack, Sanford
September 2008
C&D World;Sep/Oct2008, Vol. 1 Issue 5, p12
The author comments on the bundling of construction and demolition (C&D) materials with municipal solid waste by governing bodies in franchise agreements related to waste collection, and its negative impact on C&D recyclers. He asserts that the practice does not promote the recycling of C&D materials. Such materials may be produced from various types of projects, including site clearance and roadwork.
