The Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA) has developed a number of tools to assist contractors and developers divert materials from construction and demolition projects. CMRA developed these tools with funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Construction and Demolition Recycling Assistance grant program.
These tools include master specifications for waste management and recycling, including planning documents and reporting forms for both new construction and demolition projects.
Before using any of these tools, please take a few moments to review the introduction and background provided by CMRA. These samples are meant to be used and modified as appropriate, so they must be edited to suit the project and site locale.
