Construction & Deconstruction Council

Recycle Colorado’s C&D Council stakeholder group and C&D End Market Development Report were launched in 2019 to begin building a circular economy for C&D in Colorado. At the same time, a focus on these materials as the next step beyond traditional household recycling and composting and as a significant part of climate and zero waste goals began taking hold organically across the Front Range and in our mountain communities. 

Hosted by the C&D Council, this page serves as a knowledge base to support the growth of the C&D industry.

C&D Policy 5-Year Vision (2022-2027)

  • C&D waste generators statewide have more incentives to divert their materials from the landfill through local policies or state-level legislation.
  • Through its C&D Council and other advocacy, Recycle Colorado has supported the development of local policies that drive investment in processing infrastructure and new end market solutions. Emphasis is placed on promoting deconstruction over traditional demolition as a means of preserving value and better quality materials at end-of-life.
  • A centralized recycling authority has developed greater knowledge and data reporting of C&D waste generation, material flows, recovery rates, and infrastructure needs in Colorado to support appropriate C&D policy interventions.
  • State government leads by example with C&D recovery goals, data collection, and other strategies to reduce waste on state construction projects.
