EPA Guidelines for Construction & Demolition Debris (AIA# TCEGDD) (3 credit hours/3 HSW Hours)
Any company involved with building-construction, demolition, or renovation creates construction and demolition (C&D) debris.  This debris can consist of three types of waste: (1) inert or nonhazardous waste; (2) hazardous waste as regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA); and (3) items that contain hazardous components that might be regulated by some states.  This 3 hour course describes the required procedures to be followed when generating, storing, transporting, or disposing of hazardous waste.  Often the best way to deal with the waste is to keep it out of landfills by reducing its volume, reusing it, and recycling it, and the course provides guidelines on how this can best be done.  Several successful case studies of recycling demolition materials are presented.
