Construction waste

Advancing the use of recycled building materials in new construction
Adam Teva V'Din has a long-term commitment to building regulatory tools to end the scourge of construction and building waste dumped in urban and rural landscapes.

More than 3 million tons of construction waste per year could be recycled.

But lack of adequate legislation, poor or non-existant enforcement, and a shortage of designated recycling sites means that every year thousands of tons of reusable construction waste is landfilled or discarded in the countryside, alongside roads and in precious open spaces.

Adam Teva V’Din is working to expand awareness among relevant parties by publishing position papers and economic analyses. Our position is that only legislation requiring the use of recycled building materials in government projects will provide market incentives for reusing valuable resources.
