To reduce construction and demolition waste disposed of in landfills and incineration facilities by recovering, reusing and recycling materials.
CITIES, COMMUNITIESDevelop a detailed construction and demolition (C&D) waste management plan and commit to divert minimum of 35% of C&D waste from all infrastructure works and construction undertaken by the city development authority. This includes but is not limited to roads and highways, transits, water supply and wastewater treatment plants, public spaces and parks and buildings owned by the development authorities. The plan must include an overall project waste diversion goal and identify the strategies for waste diversion. Alternative daily cover (ADC) does not qualify as material diverted from disposal. Land- clearing debris is not considered construction, demolition, or renovation waste that can contribute to waste diversion. Provide a C&D facility within or outside the city boundary to treat C&D waste generated from all infrastructure works and construction undertaken by the city development authority. Ensure that waste from city/ community is treated by the assigned facility. For cities, where C&D waste management services are undertaken by the subcontractors, ensure all above requirements are met.
