Abstract: Abstract: Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris disposal has become problematic at Army installations in both economic and environmental terms. Some installations report that C&D debris constitutes about 80% of their solid waste stream. However, alternatives to conventional demolition and landfilling can divert more than 75% of debris from the landfill at considerable cost savings. Fort Leonard Wood, MO plans to remove 16 1960s-era Motor Pool buildings and eight accompanying storage and guard buildings. Demolishing these buildings will result in a significant amount of debris. As part of the Installation Strategic Sustainability Plan (ISSP), Fort Leonard Wood must reduce the amount of solid waste deposited in its waste stream, of which C&D waste is a major part. A sustainable way to reduce C&D waste is to reuse and recycle building components and materials. To facilitate that effort, this work: (1) characterized the target construction materials as re-usable, recyclable, and potential debris; (2) identified beneficial use opportunities for salvaged and recycled materials; (3) developed a “waste minimization plan”; (4) identified apparent or suspected hazards their impacts on reuse and recycling building materials; and (5) ensured that this characterization is inclusive of all buildings of the type.
