Builders and demolition contractors can save money and help the environment by recycling various components of construction and demolition waste rather than disposing of this material. An April, 2004 survey conducted by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection shows that recycling asphalt debris, concrete rubble, used bricks and blocks, felled trees and stumps and wood scrap costs significantly less than disposing of these materials as solid waste.
