Constructing a Circular Economy
There’s no reason why we can’t reuse materials and source recycled products while we build in Philly.
Philadelphia is experiencing a building boom as our population grows for the first time in generations. But even though the EPA reports that an impressive 75% of construction and demolition debris is recycled in the US, construction and demolition debris still accounts for about 32% of materials going to landfills.
At Circular Philadelphia, we work with construction and demolition recyclers, deconstruction companies, builders and city officials to increase reuse and recycling of building materials while also addressing Philadelphia’s pervasive illegal dumping problem. We also work with architects, building operators and purchasers to require and source reclaimed and recycled products for their projects.
