C&D recyclers and demolition contractors face many challenges in order to remain competitive in their businesses. From legislative issues to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) to materials theft—the issues abound.
The C&D Recycling Forum, Sept. 23-25 at the Hilton Long Beach and Executive Meeting Center in Long Beach, Calif., will tackle many of these hot topics during a session titled, “Taking on the Issues,” Sept. 24 at 3:30 p.m.
Long-time waste industry consultant Bob Brickner of GBB Inc., Fairfax Va., will moderate the session with subjects that are diverse and having an effect on the industry.
Jason Haus of Dem-Con Companies, LLC, Shakopee, Minn., will provide an update on regulatory conditions including the EPA’s Non Hazardous Secondary Materials Rule (NHSM). Haus also will discuss progress the Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA) is making to certify the recycling rates of C&D recycling facilities through the Institute for Certification of Sustainable Recyclers independent, third party certification.
Richard Lorenz, Central Environmental Services Inc., Orlando, Fla., will provide advice on how to prevent metals thefts from construction and demolition sites-an issue that can cost demolition contractors thousands of dollars in lost revenues.
This is just one of several sessions geared at helping improve the businesses of those who handle C&D debris. More information about this and other sessions is available at www.CDRecycler.com/Forum.
