Separation of Debris

Separating Materials On Site
Job site separation of non-salvageable but otherwise recyclable debris materials will facilitate recycling, and is strongly encouraged. For example, the separation of both scrap wood and drywall during the construction of a house should be undertaken if feasible, particularly where those materials represent a large portion of the total materials generated.

Debris Boxes
To encourage source separation, facilities often accept separated materials at a lower fee than mixed debris. Debris box companies may offer similar discounts. Labeling debris containers and educating subcontractors will help ensure clean, source-separated loads.
Please refer to our Waste Recycling Packet for approved Debris Box companies.
