If you are one of the many mixed C&D recyclers or demolition contractors in search of what to do with vinyl siding in your material mix, then the C&D Recycling Forum, Sept. 25 – 27 at the Turf Valley Resort & Conference Center in Ellicott City, (Baltimore) Md., is the event for you.
Among the many important topics the forum will delve into is emerging end markets. On Monday, Sept. 26, in a session titled, “Recycling a Larger Mix,” presenters offer a look at strategies to diversify tap into several emerging end markets. Attendees will hear from Sam Fisher of Sherman’s Valley Recycling about how that company is able to recycle vinyl siding. Also slated to speak during this session is Terry Weaver of USA Gypsum, who will discuss markets for gypsum drywall scrap. Andy Lake of Armstrong will also share how the ceiling company has modified its program (which has recycled more than 100 million square feet of old ceiling material) to be more recycler-friendly.
But that’s not all that the forum will have to offer during the three-day event. Rich programming held over the course of the forum will explore alternative energy markets, demolition and construction projects that achieved high recycling rates, changes to the LEED rating system, advice on concrete and asphalt crushing and much, much more. A full schedule of sessions is available at www.cdrecycler.com/forum.
