>The Other Side of Building Green
>June 14, 2006 - Buffalo, NY

>materials can be recycled and reused. Current trends in green
>building make it easier than ever to deconstruct, reuse and recycle
>building materials. Reducing and recycling C&D debris conserves
>landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new
>materials, creates jobs, and can reduce overall building project
>expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs.
>Deconstruction and Beneficial Use: The Other Side of Building Green
>offers a full day of educational programs featuring industry and
>government experts discussing current business, operations, and
>regulatory trends and how they are impacting construction and
