Construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) is the champion waste stream in the MRC d’Argenteuil. Indeed, the MRC’s 2015 report shows that the quantity of CRD material collected at our ecocentres has increased by 250% in 5 years! Many residents use this service, resulting in the diversion of almost 2,500 metric tons from the landfill.

Did you know?

CRD waste is mostly generated by road and public infrastructure work as well as the building sector. An increasing market for recycled aggregates is giving a new life to these materials. Green buildings promote waste reduction on the construction site and the reuse or recycling of CRD waste. More and more companies are specializing in the resale of used moldings, doors, stained glass windows, etc., which have style or a vintage look.
