During the 25th annual meeting of the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), which took place during Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020, in Las Vegas, March 10-12, the group held their annual fundraising event to support C&D industry research and advocacy efforts.

"Over the 25-year history of the CDRA the group has been committed to building resources for our members, to market development and to educating regulators and legislators about the recycling of construction materials and demolition debris" said William Turley, CDRA Executive Director.

"The CDRA has directly funded, or helped to facilitate, nearly $1 million in research and advocacy to understand and support C&D recycling and market development. Our annual fundraising event is essential to maintaining our ability to make these long-term investments in the industry. Through the overwhelming generosity of our members, we were able to raise an additional $56,000 just this week" Turley said.

The CDRA has funded research on a wide range of subjects that include concrete recycling, shingle recycling, C&D fines characteristics and the environmental benefits and economic impact of C&D recycling.

The CDRA hosted its annual C&D World meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada last week in conjunction with ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020, the largest construction equipment exposition in the U.S.
