CDRA Benefits of C&D Recycling

Construction and demolition debris represent one of the largest components of the solid waste stream in the United States. Statistics regarding C&D quantities, characteristics, and management in the U.S. have not been tracked in the same details as municipal solid waste. This full report is meant for CDRA members only. 

How to Develop End Markets

New Gypsum Recycling Best Management Practices White Paper

The U.S. consumes 46 million tons of gypsum annually. 13.6 million tons gypsum drywall waste is generated in manufacturing, construction and demolition. Gypsum reclaimed from drywall can be used as a substitute for mined or synthetic gypsum for the manufacture of new drywall, Portland cement or as an agricultural soil amendment. The process begins with removing foreign material and separating the paper facing leaving a clean gypsum powder. Review our new guide to the process here. Thanks to our Gypsum Recycling Committee for leading the effort to develop this document.

How to Better Manage and Market C&D Fines

Small particle sized materials can be a challenge. The two documents below provide detailed information on how to work with regulator questions about the fines. Both documents are available for download. Executive Summaries of both are only available to CDRA members.


CO2 Calculator

The C02 calculator tool allows CDRA members to calculate the environmental benefits their recycling facility provides to society and the local community. The calculator allows users to input the number of tons their facility recovers every day, week, month or year, and they can see how that translates into the following:

  • Tons of CO2 saved per ton of recycled item — Includes all greenhouse gases that are saved by recycling a ton of this material 

  • Bulbs saved — The annual energy from this many standard 60-watt incandescent light bulbs is saved by recycling a ton of this material

  • Gallons of gas saved — The equivalent amount of energy in this number of gallons of gasoline is saved by recycling a ton of this material

  • Vehicles Saved — Recycling this material per ton equates to removing the greenhouse gas emissions of this many vehicles.

  • Home electricity —Recycling a ton of this material saves enough energy to power this many houses annually.

 Full resource coming soon.
