Information applies only to waste from do-it-yourself construction or demolition projects. If construction debris is mixed with demolition debris, the entire load is considered demolition debris.
Contact a recycling company below to ask about recycling construction debris from new construction or building projects. These items may include lumber, concrete, asphalt, metals, and cardboard. Recycling construction debris is cheaper than disposal.
Give away, sell, or donate good condition construction materials. Contact a reuse company below to ask about donating your specific items. Verify accepted items and hours.
Demolition debris must be disposed as garbage. Demolished or renovated structures may contain asbestos, lead, mercury, and other dangerous contaminants. It is recommended you hire a certified contractor or inspector to identify, remove, and dispose of hazardous demolition debris.
