  • The Institution Recycling Network Baystate Health, June 21, 2007 / 603-229-1962
  • Pretty self-explanatory here. The statistics speak for themselves
  • This is a sample monthly recycling report and is self-explanatory
  • No notes needed here
  • Again this is pretty self-explanatory, and these are measured in the monthly recycling report. Greenhouse gases such as methane are calculated in the recycling report under MTCO2E.
  • No notes needed here
  • The Institution Recycling Network Baystate Health, June 21, 2007 / 603-229-1962 We generally earn an innovation credit for exemplary performance in C&D Recycling

    • Environmental Impact
    • C&D, The Connecticut Example
    • Achieving Exemplary Performance
      • Contractor LEED Training, Data Compilation, Documentation, Template Preparation, Project Follow-up Through Certification Including:
      • Project Materials Audit and Recycling Assessment
      • Waste Management Plan (WMP)
      • Integration of the WMP with the General Contractor operations and schedule

      • Monthly Waste Management Reporting
      • Final waste audit report
      • LEED template submittals
      • Develop, implement and document compliance with an IAQ management plan. LEED template submittals
    • Recycling saves money
    • and it’s good for the environment.
    • Recycling is often 15-25% less costly than disposal.
    • Energy Savings: Aluminum requires 20 times more energy to produce from bauxite ore compared to producing it from scrap.
    • Emissions Reduction: one ton of wood recycled saves .54 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Less waste can lead to fewer disposal facilities, potentially reducing associated environmental issues including methane gas emissions which contribute to global climate change . Reducing, reusing, and recycling C&D materials offsets the need to extract and consume virgin resources, which also reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Deconstruction , salvage and selective demolition methods divert large amounts of materials from disposal and provide business opportunities within the local community. Reducing the amount of Construction & Demolition (C&D) materials disposed of in landfills or combustion facilities provides numerous benefits: REDUCING C&D MATERIALS
    • A Very Large Waste Stream
      • 40% of Raw Materials, 25% of Solid Waste
      • More recyclables in one job than most organizations generate in a year
    • A Very Recyclable Waste Stream
      • 20+ Different Materials
      • 85% - 99% Recycling Rates
      • Less Expensive Than Disposal
    • The Current Picture in Connecticut and Overall Landfill Reduction Goals: Connecticut does not have a formal C & D landfill reduction goal. The landfill reduction goal is currently stated as an overall per capita reduction of 58% to be achieved by 2024.
    • Question: To Equal the Overall Reduction of Landfill (per capita basis and goals) by 2024, what is the percentage of increase in C & D recycling statewide that we would have to achieve?
    • Answer: Only 5%
    • Increasing C &D Recycling by only this percentage can have the same impact as the state’s overall 15 year plan!
    • Question: When could we achieve this increase?
    • Answer: Now!
    • Question: How high a recycling rate can we achieve?
    • Answer: Based on the our experience, LEED goals, although not mandated, are easily attainable at little or no cost increase*
    • 50% recycling/diversion from landfill; or one LEED Credit
    • 75% recycling/diversion from landfill; or two LEED Credits
    • *A 50% recycling/diversion from landfill is easily achieved on any and all projects without an increase in cost to the project owner
    • Greenhouse Gas Reduction 1,313,111 MTCO2E
    • Barrels of Oil Saved 839,654
    • Cars Kept Off Road/Year 70,357
    • Houses Powered/Year 46,905
    • Compared to the current C&D recycling rate of 7% recovery, these figures represent an improvement of: 714%
    • And a manifold improvement over the current overall Connecticut per capita goal. The Construction Industry can have a huge, positive impact on the environment!
    • Should be able to achieve 50%-75% on most projects w/o cost impact to the budget
    • Achieve both LEED credits with little to no cost impact to the project
    • Team ”buy-in” is required
    • Establish plan early and be creative
    • Subcontractor education is essential achieve success
    • Established waste management plan day one
    • Items to be salvaged
    • Recycling (ceiling tile, carpet….)
    • Specialty recycling (gypsum)
    • Packaging to limit waste
    • Handling mixed debris
    • Know site conditions
    • What lay down areas are available
    • On site sorting yields best value
    • When commingled C&D is necessary?
    • Are covered dumpsters required? When
    • Extreme dust control measures (water)
    • On-site segregation
      • Need lay down area
      • Challenge Materials
        • Gypsum
        • EDPM Roofing
        • VCT
      • Ceiling tile removal storage
    • On site staged segregation
      • Temp storage of materials
      • Change out dumpsters
    • Off-site segregation
    • Including Demolition and Recycling in the Project, A Step by Step Process:
    • A bullet point summary;
    • At Project Inception :
    • Architect and Owner discuss opportunities for Deconstruction
    • Architect and Owner discuss recycling in general terms; what materials will come out of the project? What are the opportunities for recycling and a soft- targeted recycling rate?
    • Recycling Consultant is retained (optional)
    • RFP Stage :
    • RFP is developed to contain Deconstruction as well as Demolition and Construction Waste Recycling Language and Requirements
    • All Contractors respond to RFP to include Deconstruction and Hard-Targeted Recycling Goals based on RFP requirements
    • Pre-Demo and Demo Phase :
    • A Demolition Waste Management Plan is written
    • Deconstruction occurs before general demolition
    • Demolition Waste Management Plan is followed during Demo
    • Demolition Waste Audit Reports are produced periodically
        • Construction Phase :
    • A Construction Waste Management Plan is written, and followed during Construction
    • Construction Waste Audit Reports are produced periodically
    • A note about Waste Management Plans and Waste Audit Reports:
        • Recycling is maximized via an effective Waste Management Plan. Eco One Solutions plans are written as a parallel document to the Architect’s specifications and thus can be easily followed by the project Superintendent.
        • Eco One Solutions Waste Audit Reports note the positive environmental effects of the project’s recycling efforts, and create a positive feedback loop for all contractors during the project
    • 50% Recycling = 1 Point
    • 75% Recycling = 1 Point
    • Innovation Credits
      • 95%+ Recycling Rate
      • Return materials to the job
        • Examples: Aggregate or wood returned to the jobsite
