On this date, the Sustainable Habitat Cluster highlights the importance of recycling Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW), in the three dimensions of sustainability.
In the environmental dimension, CDW recycling makes it possible to reduce the mass of waste sent to landfills and to reduce the need to exploit virgin resources. In the economic dimension, the reintegration of components, once useless in the production chain, provides added value to them in the market.
Finally, the reduction of illegal disposal points for this waste prevents the development of disease outbreaks in these areas, contributing to the social well-being of the population.
Among the members of the Sustainable Habitat Cluster, you can find those who take CDW recycling into account in their construction activities, as well as those who carry out the treatment and management of this waste!
