Presentation Transcript

1. Survey of CCA-Treated Wood in the C&D Waste Stream CCA TAG Meeting May 13, 2004 Orlando, Florida Florida Center for Solid and Hazardous Waste Management A Type I (Statewide) Research Center created by the Florida Legislature in 1988

2. The Center’s mission is to sponsor and conduct research in the area of solid and hazardous waste management. We work with faculty at nine universities.

3. Construction & Demolition Debris Electronic Waste Hazardous Waste Management Incineration Landfills Medical Waste Management Principal research areas include: Municipal Solid Waste Management Pollution Prevention Recycling and Reuse Socioeconomic Issues Special Wastes Waste Reduction

4. Current CCA Research Projects

12. The Contribution of Wood to C&D Debris

13. Survey of Disposal Facilities in Florida Provide data/information on the occurrence of CCA-treated wood in the waste stream.

14. Survey of Disposal Facilities 23 facilities were visited across the state between February 26 – May 4 Class III landfills C&D landfills Materials Recycling Facilities (MRFs) Class I landfill (one facility) Staff observed that there is very little difference in the type of waste accepted at Class III landfills and C&D landfills.

17. Survey of Disposal Facilities

18. Preliminary Data!! Total # of loads observed = 342 Est. total volume of all loads = 6501 yd3 # of loads containing wood = 319 or 93% (319/342) Est. total volume of wood = 1566 yd3 or 24% (1566/6501) # of loads contained treated wood = 141 or 41% (141/342) Est. total volume of treated wood = 261 yd3 or 4% (261/6501) Survey of Disposal Facilities

20. Due to safety issues, the source of the loads (residential/ commercial, construction/ demolition/ renovation, etc.) could not be determined for all loads. Survey of Disposal Facilities

21. Dedicated Loads (Deck/Dock)

22. Dedicated Loads

23. So, the PRELIMINARY data indicates that only 1.5% of the 342 loads were “dedicated loads”.

24. Dedicated load from a dock builder

25. The identification and removal of CCA-treated wood is VERY difficult in some instances.

27. Identification of treated wood is difficult when the wood is painted.

28. End tags help identify CCA-treated wood

30. Is it CCA, ACQ or Copper Azole?

31. Color differences between untreated and treated wood (NOT WEATHERED)

32. Mixed wood debris

33. Weathering and paint make identification difficult

34. Treated wood may be hidden in landscaping and yard waste

35. Survey of Disposal Facilities Of the 141 loads that contained treated wood: 63% were identified by the greenish hue 37% were from a structure that is typically treated (fence, deck, dock, etc.) 10% were identified through consultation with landfill staff, hauler, or other expert 5% were identified by end tags *note: some loads were identified using more than one method

42. How waste enters MRFs

43. Waste Sorting at MRFs

45. A concrete tipping floor such as this makes picking and sorting easier

46. Some landfills have more area for walking around the waste to sort out recyclables

47. Most landfills have little room for sorting waste after tipping

48. Phone Survey

49. Contractors – 14 Decks – 6 Demolition – 5 Docks – 31 Fencing – 140 Marine – 34 Woodworks - 2 Businesses that participated

50. Typical Uses Decks, Boardwalks

51. Typical Uses Fences

52. Typical Uses Docks

53. Typical Uses Utility Poles

56. Phone Survey Results General contractors reported CCA-treated wood was in SOME of their loads Deck Builders reported that nearly ALL the decks were CCA-treated Demolition Contractors reported that VERY FEW of their loads contained CCA-treated wood Dock Builders reported that MOST docks were CCA-treated

57. Fence Builders 21% reported less than half of their discarded wood waste was CCA-treated 2% reported that half of their discarded wood was CCA-treated 38% reported that most of their discarded wood waste was CCA-treated 39% were unsure how much of their discarded wood was CCA-treated

58. Marine Contractors 14% said a small amount of their wood waste was CCA-treated 12% said most of their wood waste was CCA-treated 56% said all of their wood waste was CCA-treated 18% were unsure how much of their discarded wood was CCA-treated

60. Waste wood disposed in a roll-off

64. Residential Collection
