The EBC 18th Annual Construction and Demolition (C&D) Materials Management Summit remains 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.

2023 saw the C&D industry address new challenges and the need to adapt to rapidly evolving business and economic circumstances like new developments in processing technologies and current disposal options in New England and beyond. Summit presentations will cover a range of relevant topics including case studies on C&D materials management, source separation, and recycling, as a well as presentations focused on specific material streams (wood, gypsum, shingles). The Summit will also incorporate informational sessions on hazardous building materials management and embodied carbon considerations for construction. Attendees will hear industry leaders reflect on these and other recent industry trends and changes in the C&D market.

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. As we gear up for 2024, the Summit will look to the many challenges and opportunities ahead for the industry.

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 (5.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the program.
