Construction and Demolition Waste
Construction and demolition (C&D) waste makes up about 5 per cent of waste that is sent to landfill in the RDN. However, up to 95 per cent of this waste can be kept out of the landfill through material recovery practices and recycling.
Construction Waste Best Practices Guide
Reducing C&D waste will help the Regional District of Nanaimo achieve its waste diversion goal of 90 per cent. The Construction Waste Best Practices Guide highlights best practices, case studies and resources for construction and demolition industry members to identify opportunities to reduce waste and improve environmental performance.
