Construction and Demolition

Most materials generated during new construction, renovation and demolition of buildings, roads and other structures can be recycled. In the long run, recovery of these materials conserves resources, saves energy and protects natural features.

Materials can either be reused onsite or placed into a container for recycling offsite via one of American Waste's recycling centers. 

Whether you order a project container from us or self-haul materials to one of our fee-based facilities, we will accept all non-hazardous C&D wastes from a project.


We actually recycle the following array of C&D materials:

  • Rubble

  • Shingles & asphalt roofing materials

  • Plastics (containers, films, sheeting)
  • Aluminum (including siding)
