Construction & Demolition Recycling
Reuse and recycling of C&D materials is one component of a larger holistic practice
called sustainable or green building construction. The efficient use of resources is a
fundamental tenet of green building construction. This means reducing, reusing, and
recycling most if not all materials that remain after a construction or renovation
project. Green building construction practices can include salvaging dimensional
lumber from the project, using aggregates reclaimed from crushed concrete, or
grinding drywall scraps for use on site as a soil amendment.
At the end of a building’s life, demolition generates large amounts of materials that
can be reused or recycled, principally wood, concrete and other types of masonry,
and drywall. Rather than demolish an entire building, consider “deconstructing” all
or part of the structure. Deconstruction is the orderly dismantling building
components for reuse or recycling. In contrast to demolition, where buildings are
knocked down and materials are either landfilled or recycled, deconstruction
involves carefully taking apart portions of buildings or removing their contents with
the primary goal being reuse. It can be as simple as stripping out cabinetry, fixtures,
and windows, or as involved as manually taking apart the building frame.
Through careful planning, reuse and recycling of C&D materials can actually be
more economical than disposal. GEL has the state of the art recycling equipment to
process all of your construction and demolition debris needs.
The plant in Orange City is one of the few in Central Florida with the capabilities

internationally recognized symbol for
recycling the arrows go around in a
circle because recycling is an infinite
process. Each arrow represents a
different part of the recycling process
from collection to remanufacture to
resale. Recycling reduces our
garbage level, and making new
products out of recycled ones
reduces the amount of energy
needed in production.
