Welcome to CalRecycle’s recycled content construction products catalog! This site is intended to help specification writers, architects and planners design with durable, energy efficient and lasting products for environmentally sustainable construction projects.
If you’re in need of products to meet CALGreen, the US Green Building Council’s LEED requirements, or just want to help “close the loop”, this site can be a resource to your project.
