U.S. demolition waste studied

Fairfax, VA— Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) completed a detailed evaluation of the amount of demolition material generated annually by the “traditional” demolition industry in the United States. The evaluation concluded that over 115 million tons per year (2004 data point) of demolition material are handled across the United States and the industry reuses/recycles an estimated 73% of that overall material.

The evaluation was completed under contract to the National Demolition Association (NDA), headquartered in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. It concluded a six-month data collection and evaluation period where GBB worked with the NDA and its almost 600 “demo contractor” members regarding their demolition waste quantities handled and recycling habits. Participants were located throughout 40 states.
