The EBC 16th Annual Construction and Demolition (C&D) Materials Management Summit continues to be the primary industry forum that explores the state of the C&D industry in New England. C&D materials management continues to be an important and much discussed topic, not just regionally here in New England, but also at the national and global levels.

The continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic into 2021 presented the C&D industry with an extended period of adaptation to rapidly evolving business and economic circumstances. The Summit will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear from industry leaders as they reflect on the continuing impacts from COVID, recent industry trends, and changes in the C&D market. As we gear up for 2022, the Summit will look to the many challenges and opportunities ahead for the industry.

The Summit will present on a range of relevant topics including market development for C&D recycling, new uses for C&D material, and innovations in demolition practices. The Summit will also convene a panel of experts to discuss regional and national trends in the industry. The opening presentation this year will be by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Acting Deputy Commissioner Paul Locke.

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.

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

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the program.
