>EPA's "Jobs Through Recycling" Grants Network
>EPA's WasteWise program has a new initiative to get organizations --
>public, private and non-profit -- to reduce
>their waste from building construction, renovation, and demolition
>activities.  The WasteWise Building Challenge is designed to help
>organizations expand their waste reduction efforts into the area of
>construction and demolition (C&D) debris, including reducing, reusing
>and recycling C&D debris and buying recycled building products.
>Advantages to organizations that pledge to the Challenge include
>potential cost savings, opportunities to get publicly recognized for
>their efforts and achievements, improved environmental performance, and
>technical assistance.  WasteWise is offering general technical resources
>on the topic to all, and will be providing direct, hands-on technical
>assistance from C&D recycling experts to a limited number of partners
>with large building projects.  In addition, the first 50 partners to
>pledge will receive a free CD full of green building information.
>Consider taking the next step by accepting the WasteWise Building
>The program is limited to partners of the WasteWise program, but it's
>free and relatively easy to join the program.
