CMRA active on several fronts.
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, www.concreterecycling.org. 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.
A Web site devoted to providing information on recycling drywall materials has debuted at www.gypsumrecycling.com. The site is considered a living document, so suggestions for Improvement can be sent to the CMRA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Progress continues on the new awards program for C&D recycling developed by the CMRA. Deadline for entries closes Dec. 16, 2004. More entries are being sought. The nomination form is available online at www.cdrecycling.org or by calling the CMRA at (630) 585-7530.
