Update #4

The EPA recently released the latest data on construction and demolition waste in the US.

In 2018, 600 million tons of C&D debris were generated!!

Demolition represented over 90% of total C&D debris generation. Concrete was the largest portion at 67.5% followed by asphalt concrete at 17.8%. Wood products made up 6.8%, and the other products accounted for 7.9% combined.

C&D waste is hugely understudied in the US, so we are happy to see this data released by the EPA and hope to see much more research on building material waste and reuse in the future.

Update #1

Thanks to all of you that have donated we are over 10% of our goal. We hit 3,000 this morning so 2 more zeros and we will meet our target :)

The photo here is from our friends at Old Windows Workshop. OWW is a great example of how reuse can be a powerful way to lift up our communities, save materials and change lives! Help us spread the word and increase our ability to help other communities!

"Old Window Workshop Cooperative (OWWC), is a women worker-owned cooperative based in Springfield's South End. OWWC provides employment and business ownership opportunity for women struggling with poverty. Our cooperative contributes to economic empowerment for women resulting in strong families and safer communities.​"

Thanks again everyone! Keep sharing and posting. Joe
