Construction and Demolition Recycling
Austin City Council in Austin, Texas, has passed an ordinance intended to increase the reuse and recycling of materials from construction and demolition projects. The ordinance had been under discussion in the summer of 2015, including comments made by a skeptical demolition contractor.
With the ordinance passed, beginning Oct. 1, 2016, the city of Austin will require 50 percent diversion of materials from construction projects larger than 5,000 square feet. In 2019, the ordinance will expand to include all commercial demolition projects.
