To reduce construction and demolition waste disposed of in landfills and incineration facilities by recovering, reusing, and recycling materials.
Develop and implement a construction and demolition waste management plan:
- Establish waste diversion goals for the project by identifying at least five materials (both structural and nonstructural) targeted for diversion.
- Specify whether materials will be separated or co-mingled and describe the diversion strategies planned for the project. Describe where the material will be taken and how the recycling facility will process the material including expected diversion rates for each material stream.
Provide a final report detailing all major waste streams generated, including disposal and diversion rates.
Alternative daily cover (ADC) does not qualify as material diverted from disposal. Include materials destined for ADC in the calculations as waste. Land-clearing debris is not considered construction, demolition, or renovation waste that can contribute to waste diversion.
