Some of the largest barriers of recycling C&D waste lie in financial feasibility, education, lack of C&D resources and available secondary markets. Because of these barriers, establishing a successful C&D recycling operation can be daunting. This paper will provide a cost analysis for diverting C&D waste. In addition, this paper will make recommendations for local and state governments to order to increase diversion rates in support of the 75% recycling mandate. In order to provide realistic diversion rates, the plan will be based on market conditions and identify those conditions, such as transportation costs, that limit diversion.
