The EBC 13th Annual Construction and Demolition (C&D) Materials Management Summit continues to be a primary industry forum that deeply explores the state of the industry in New England. C&D materials management has advanced with the success of the industry driven by regional, national, and international markets. However, C&D materials management remains a hot topic, in large part due to many of the challenges that remain unresolved. This 13th Annual Summit will provide attendees with state, regional and national perspectives on the industry, and include a keynote presentation from Mass DEP Commissioner Suuberg and discussions on: debris management in the aftermath of large-scale natural disasters; gypsum board recycling; and other topics; and end with a panel of representative from the C&D derived wood market, followed by a panel discussion among C&D generators and processors.

Who should attend: Construction Contractors, Demolition Contractors, Industry Consultants, Public and Private Project Owners, Solid Waste Processors, Haulers and Recyclers, Municipal and State Officials.

Attend and participate in this annual C&D Summit and gain insight into the regional and national developments affecting your business, learn more about the opportunities and barriers in certain C&D markets, and discuss the challenges of the industry with your colleagues.

Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
