Deconstruct This!

You only have to look outside and see the cranes dotting the skyline to know that construction is booming in our region, and with it, construction material! In 2014 alone, 500,000 tons of construction materials were generated at jobsites in Seattle. While construction and demolition (C&D) materials comprise a large portion of the waste stream in the U.S., repurposing and recycling the concrete, drywall, wood, and other materials from construction projects creates jobs, keeps valuable resources out of the landfill, and helps avoid greenhouse gas emissions.

 

This roundtable will explore the opportunities around C&D material salvage and recycling. Kinley Deller of King County will talk about the development of their C&D recycling ordinance, and Kathleen Petrie and Gabriella Uhlar-Heffner from the City of Seattle will share lessons learned from the city’s ordinance from both a building and waste perspective. Noel Stout of Dedicated Deconstruction, a salvage and deconstruction firm in Seattle, will also talk about the benefits of building disassembly in order to recover items for use in new projects or remanufacture.

 

Speakers

·         Kinley Deller, King County Solid Waste Division

·         Noel Stout, Dedicated Deconstruction

·         Gabriella Uhlar-Heffner, Seattle Public Utilities
