More than 70 percent of the Construction and Demolition (C&D) material generated in the United States is recycled, according Dr. Timothy Townsend of the University of Florida, speaking at C&D World 2015, the Annual Meeting of the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA). He added that the area of landfill avoided by recycling this amount of C&D is annually equivalent to more than 440 acres at a waste depth of 50 ft.
