Cook County’s Demolition Debris Diversion Ordinance has allowed the County to recycle or reuse 90% of building materials from demolitions and renovations, keeping them out of landfills, reclaiming valuable materials, avoiding Greenhouse Gas emissions and creating jobs. Enacted in 2012, the Ordinance sets standards and requirements for building material reuse in suburban Cook County. Please join them on March 5th, 2015 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm CST, to learn about the development and implementation of the ordinance and how its principles could be beneficial to your community.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
