Advancing sustainable management of construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) waste

The waste generated from construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) activities accounts for around 27% of all waste generated in Canada. The large amount of CRD waste which could be prevented or recycled is sent to landfill without utilization, resulting in environmental problems and waste of resources. The aim of project is to provide the best management practices and policy recommendations for CRD waste management in Montreal West. The outcome of this study is expected to be used for supporting the strategic planning of CRD waste management to achieve sustainable development in Montreal West. The city of Montreal West will be able to make an informed decision when updating its residual materials management strategy, taking into account the life cycle of CRD residues.
