To understand and ultimately reduce contamination levels in the recycling stream.
Complete annual recycling audit by on-site personnel or third party during the reporting period. Process requires physical separation of the recyclables by commodity and contaminate. Identify weights and percentages of contamination in the recyclables that should be removed for a more accurate diversion rate.
Request information on accepted recyclable materials and contaminates from service provider(s). Keep a sample or full day’s recyclables and labeling containers for the 12 Market Categories. Recruit volunteers to separate the recyclables in a public area to educate facility staff about the percentage of contamination in recycling. Record material types and their weights.
- Narrative describing audit of recyclables
- Documentation of the recyclable audit (include all reports and photographs).
