C&D Debris Recycling
A Wisconsin Waste Characterization Study report from May of 2003 done for the Department by Cascadia Consulting Group, Inc. shows that C&D wastes comprise 28.7 percent of the waste being landfilled in Wisconsin or more than 850 thousand tons per year. Of the 4.7 million tons of waste going to municipal solid waste landfills, C&D wastes, paper and organic materials (food wastes) comprised two thirds of the total.
