Construction & Demolition Waste Panel
LEEDv4, Diversion Best Practices, and Deconstruction, Oh My!
The St. Louis Region and the Midwest are blessed with open space and low tipping fees, which means that it is easy to overlook where our generated residential and commercial waste ends up. Despite this, many contractors and owners are looking for ways to divert materials from our landfills – through reuse, recycling and smart planning. With support from St. Louis Jefferson Solid Waste Management, USGBC-Missouri Gateway recently conducted two small research projects to learn more about the C&D credits in the next version of the LEED Green Building Rating System (LEEDv4) and to study some of the more difficult to C&D materials to reuse and recycle.
Join us for a free educational panel on Construction & Demolition Materials hosted by USGBC-Missouri Gateway and the Associated General Contractors of St. Louis on the State of Construction & Demolition Recycling in St. Louis. The panel will include a discussion of the recent USGBC-Missouri Gateway research projects as well as two local case studies – one on opportunities for C&D diversion on a Washington University project and the second on Deconstruction as an alternative to demolition.
