Waste generated during construction is recycled.
605.1 - Hazardous Waste (Required)
The construction and waste management plan shall include information on the proper handling and disposal of hazardous waste. Hazardous waste is properly handled and disposed.
605.2 - Construction Waste Management Plan (6 points)
A construction waste management plan is developed, posted at the jobsite, and implemented diverting, through reuse, salvage, recycling, or manufacturer reclamation, a minimum of 50 percent (by weight) of nonhazardous construction and demolition waste from disposal. For this practice, land clearing debris is not considered construction waste. Materials used as alternative daily cover are considered construction waste and do not count toward recycling or salvaging.
For buildings following the new construction path that also have a renovation component, the waste management plan includes the recycling of 95 percent of electronic waste components (such as printed circuit boards from computers, building automation systems, HVAC, fire and security control boards) by an E-Waste recycling facility.
- Waste materials generated from land clearing, soil and sub-grade excavation and vegetative debris shall not be in the calculations.
A recycling facility (traditional or E-Waste) offering material receipt documentation is not available within 50 miles of the jobsite.
Post C&D waste management plan on-site. Evidence that at least 50% of waste materials are being recycled or salvaged.
605.3 - On-Site Recycling (7 points)
On-site recycling measures following applicable regulations and codes are implemented, such as the following:
Materials are ground or otherwise safely applied on-site as soil amendment or fill. A minimum of 50 percent (by weight) of construction and land-clearing waste is diverted from landfill.
Alternative compliance methods approved by the Adopting Entity.
Compatible untreated biomass material (lumber, posts, beams, etc.) are set aside for combustion if a solid fuel-burning appliance per Section 901.2.1(2) will be available for on-site renewable energy.
No documentation required, but builder rep shall point out on-site recycling efforts and explain 50% goal.
605.4 - Renewable Materials (6 points MAX)
Construction materials (e.g., wood, cardboard, metals, drywall, plastic, asphalt roofing shingles, or concrete) are recycled offsite.
- A minimum of two types of materials are recycled. (3 points)
- For each additional recycled material type (1 point):
- asphalt roofing shingles
