GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Materials Management in Site Cleanup

Title:
Sustainable Materials Management in Site Cleanup

Abstract:
Sites undergoing cleanup provide opportunities for reducing waste and diverting it from landfills. Many of the opportunities involve reusing onsite materials, reusing or recycling materials offsite, and procuring construction materials with recycled content. Site-specific examples of applying these and other strategies and an extensive compendium of related tools and resources are now available in this issue paper compiled by the Engineering Forum of the U.S. EPA's Technical Support Project.
