Term Definition
Construction Debris

Waste generated by construction, renovation and demolition of buildings, roads and other structures. The waste included in construction debris is often large, bulky and heavy, making removal of the debris a rather challenging task that requires special equipment and professional knowledge. Most of the construction debris handled today goes to landfills, although some substances found in this debris can be recycled into other products. Because recycling reduces loads in landfills and decreases strain on the environment, it is the preferred method for construction debris whenever possible.
