General C&D Debris Information
C&D Debris Recycling
Illinois landfills are filling up with C&D and other wastes, and some landfills will close in the near future; therefore, it is wise to find other alternatives other than landfilling C&D debris. In addition, illegal dumping of C&D debris can result in future health risks, decreased property values, and cleanup costs. Proper management and reduction of the amount of C&D waste you generate can save money, conserve resources, and preserve the environment.
