Even though the majority of construction waste is recyclable, the overall recycling rate for construction and demolition waste in NYC is estimated to be less than 50 percent.

On June 29, join Urban Green's Emerging Professionals for a tour of Cooper Recycling’s construction and demolition recycling facility in Brooklyn. You'll get a firsthand look at the recycling process and learn about certification and processing.

Cooper Recycling is an active transfer station. All tour participants are required to wear the following:

  • Sneakers or work boots. Open-toe shoes are strictly prohibited.
  • Long pants, long sleeves (recommended)
  • Clothes and shoes that can get dirty
