101. For the purposes of this Division, “construction or demolition waste” means any material from the construction, renovation or demolition of immovables, bridges, roads or other structures, and includes stone, debris or rubble, fragments of concrete, masonry or asphalt, siding materials, wood, metal, glass, textile materials and plastics, but excludes
(1) materials rendered unrecognizable by burning, crushing, shredding or otherwise, containers of paint, solvent, sealant, adhesive or other similar materials, wood treated to prevent the presence of mould or to increase resistance to decay, yard waste such as grass, leaves and woodchips, and materials, other than bituminous coated material, containing asbestos. The words “containing asbestos” have the same meaning as in the fourth paragraph of section 41; and
(2) any material mingled with household garbage, materials from an industrial process or any of the materials referred to in subparagraph 1.
Trees, branches and stumps removed to allow for construction work, soil excavated from land including soil containing 1 or more contaminants in a concentration lower than or equal to the limit values set out in Schedule I to the Land Protection and Rehabilitation Regulation (chapter Q-2, r. 37), and residual materials from a facility that recovers or reclaims construction or demolition waste or from another recovery or reclamation facility authorized under the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) are considered to be construction or demolition waste to which this Division applies insofar as in all cases the materials, although of a composition similar to that of construction or demolition waste, were unable to be recovered or reclaimed. The limit values referred to in this paragraph for contaminants do not apply to contaminants that do not originate from human activity.
