C&D Waste Manual
The NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) developed this manual to help design and construction professionals prevent waste, increase materials recovery, and thereby reduce exports to landfills. Since C&D waste management requires a cooperative effort, the manual provides guidelines for all of the usual project participants. DDC's Office of Sustainable Design (OSD) disseminates City-specific information on sustainable design and provides resources for its managers, consultants, and client agencies.
