Hazardous Waste Generated by Construction and Demolition

Mark P. Rossow, Ph.D, PE Retired

Any company involved with building-construction, demolition, or renovation creates construction and demolition (C&D) debris. This debris can consist of three types of waste: (1) inert or nonhazardous waste; (2) hazardous waste as regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA); and (3) items that contain hazardous components that might be regulated by some states. This course describes the required procedures to be followed when generating, storing, transporting, or disposing of C&D-related hazardous waste. Often the best way to deal with the waste is to reduce its volume, reuse it, or recycle it; the course provides guidelines on how this can best be done. Several successful case studies of recycling demolition materials are presented.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
