C&D Recycling, Construction & Demolition Waste Recycling
From yesterday’s building materials into today’s new buildings.
Construction & Demolition Waste Recycling systems separate mixed construction demolition waste into material groups comprised primarily of aggregates, wood waste, metals, fibers, plastic grades, textiles and organics/soils.
Construction and Demolition recycling, usually called C&D Recycling,
Construction and Demolition recycling, usually called C&D Recycling, is created when buildings are destroyed or during the construction process. These materials include concrete, metal, brick, lumber, drywall, carpet, pipe, plastic, and other materials used in construction. C&D recycling materials account for around 25 percent of all materials that are processed through recycling centers. While the use of green building techniques has helped to reduce the amount of C&D materials, there is still a large amount of these items that must be recycled, creating the need for advanced construction and demolition processing systems.
Most often, C&D materials are accepted as mixed recyclables due to the large amount of time it would require to sort them. Construction and demolition recycling requires very heavy duty recycling systems because of the weight and size of the chunks of material. The Green Machine® C&D recycling equipment utilizes a number of different devices to separate these materials by type. This process includes grinders, screens, shredders, automatic optical sorting, air and water separators, and manual sorting to reduce the volume of waste and separate each commodity.
Once separated, these commodities are bundled and sent to paying markets for reuse rather than being sent to a landfill. The Green Machine® construction and demolition processing systems are constructed to be the most efficient and low-cost C&D recycling equipment on the market. They are heavy duty systems that can withstand the large volume and high weight of materials involved in demolition recycling.
We invite all interested customers to view a demonstration of our construction and demolition processing systems and to speak with us about their C&D recycling needs.
