Cooper Recycling

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. Cooper Recycling in Brooklyn is trying to maximize material recovery by using custom-engineered equipment and state-of-the-art technology. 

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.

Proper attire is required for this tour. Participants should wear sneakers or boots, long pants and long sleeves. Safety gear will be provided.
