CMRA active on several fronts.

The Construction Materials Recycling Association (CMRA), Eola, Ill., has been active on several fronts in recent months.

The CMRA has been working with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) on resolving the state's ban on using C&D fines as alternative daily cover. The CMRA, in conjunction with the state's two C&D recyclers and Green Seal Environmental, has been working with the DES to find a solution to a regulation that cut off disposal options for the natural byproduct of C&D processing.

Furthermore, the CMRA is also working with Green Seal Environmental, which manages CMRA's New England Chapter, to develop a list containing data on C&D fines composition throughout the country. The goal of the project is to show regulators what actually makes up the fines region by region. The findings of the study will be released next year.

The CMRA plans to develop a new Web site devoted to concrete recycling, The site will be designed to provide recyclers the marketing direction to promote the use of recycled concrete and to create a single source for all available literature on concrete recycling.

Recently, the Portland Cement Association, Stokie, Ill., endorsed the project and promised to assist in the site's development. The CMRA is currently seeking other partners in this long-term project.
