Construction and demolition (C&D) materials are hefty. It is why we can so effectively build roads, bridges and buildings out of them. It's also why, by weight, they are the most significant material in the North American waste stream. This creates a challenge for recycling, as it's usually too expensive, in terms of ROI, to ship most recovered C&D end products, including wood, concrete, drywall, asphalt, and asphalt shingles.
The Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA) has made available to members detailed guidance documents on the small particle sized materials from recycling construction and demolition materials while providing other interested parties Executive Summaries of the papers on the organization's website.

Several actions can be taken by governments at all levels to support the recycling of construction & demolition industry waste products. One of the most common tactics is landfill disposal bans on recyclable materials in the waste stream. Two examples are the ban on drywall disposal in British Columbia, and the requirement in King County, Washington that all C&D loads with more than 20 percent recyclable material be rejected at the transfer station and sent to a Material Recovery Facility.
