Abstract: São Paulo is one of the biggest cities in the world, with a population of 10.434.000 people,
according to the 2000 Census. The amount of waste generated in construction and demolition
of buildings makes their management a very complicated issue.
The companies that perform the waste-removing services, the carters, are getting organized
around the Selection and Transfer Areas (STA), as a mean to set a destination for the
collected material.
Recently, due to Resolução CONAMA-307, an specific resolution on construction an
demolition residues on a national basis, established by the National Environment Council,
which demands a management plan on every Brazilian municipality, with reutilization and
recycling goals, STAs are being equipped with crusher and sieve, as a mean to provide the
classificated material to be utilized as aggregate in pavement, as much as in non-structural
In this paper, São Paulo city’s Municipality requirements for operating of Selection and
Transfer Area of Jaçanã (North Side of the city) are presented, showing the process of
selection and segregation of the returnable materials in this STA. Lastly, it also presents the
newly implanted system to crush concrete, mortar and ceramic material, to obtain aggregate
