EDCO's Construction, Demolition, and Inert (CDI) Recycling Facility



SANCO processes mixed construction loads of wood, concrete, asphalt & gypsum board. Solid, Special, Hazardous and Green Wastes are not accepted at the facility.

When you recycle, you're ensuring conservation of precious natural resources. Equally important, the quantities of wastes that can flow through a facility like SANCO Resource Recovery are very large, with equally large impacts on the consumption of regional landfill capacity.

How to Dispose of CDI

  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Drywall
