COURSE TITLE: Guidelines for C&D Debris Removal and Recycling
COURSE NO: C03-026
Guidelines for C&D Debris Removal and Recycling
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the required procedures to be followed when generating, storing, transporting, or disposing of hazardous waste.  This course also provides guidelines on how to keep it out of landfills by reducing its volume, reusing it, and recycling it. Several successful case studies of recycling demolition materials are presented.

 

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 non-hazardous 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 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil, environmental and structural engineers as well as construction personnel and facility managers who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the EPA guidelines revolving around handling construction and demolition waste.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Federal definition of hazardous waste
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • The three categories of hazardous waste generators
  • The four lists of hazardous wastes
  • The four characteristics of hazardous wastes
  • Hazardous waste codes
  • Typical RCRA wastes in C&D debris
  • Managing C&D debris containing mercury, lead, and asbestos
  • Hazardous waste requirements checklist for construction
  • Life cycle of a typical renovation/construction waste
  • Methods for reducing the amount of waste generated
