Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris waste often contains bulky, heavy materials, including concrete, wood, asphalt , gypsum, metals, bricks, and plastics.

C&D debris also includes salvaged building components such as doors, windows, and plumbing fixtures.

C&D waste makes up between 30% and 40% of the total amount of solid waste that is created in Nova Scotia.

Reducing C&D debris conserves landfill space and reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials. It can reduce the overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs.
