Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling

Florida has a MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) Recycling goal that includes C&D (Construction and Demolition debris). Construction and Demolition Debris accounts for almost 25% of Florida's total Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) stream. A wide range of these materials can be recovered and reused or recycled into new products.

C&D Debris Recycling and Disposal is tracked by the FDEP through annual reports from Counties and Permitted C&D Facilities statewide in accordance with Florida Administrative Code rule 62-701.730(12). Debris recycled and disposed must be reported in tons by county of origin via the Florida DEP Business Portal. A cubic-yards-to-tons conversion formula is provided to assist facilities without scales in fulfilling this reporting requirement.
