Construction and Demolition
Dalhousie diverts more than 75% of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste. There are mixed C&D and metal bins in select locations on campus. For small internal jobs, staff coordinate materials for a local hauler to bring to the local C&D recycling site. For larger jobs, external contractors are required to meet the 75% diversion outlined by HRM and for LEED projects. C&D material is often source separated further to ensure recycling efforts are beyond landfill cover.
Construction and Demolition Waste includes:
- Clean shingles/ Gravel roofing;
- Clean and painted wood;
- Drywall and ceiling tiles;
- Scrap metal.
