  • 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

      • 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.
    • 7. 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
    • 8.
      • 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
    • 9.
      • 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.
    • 10.
      • 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!
    • 11.
      • 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
    • 12.
      • 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!
    • 13.
      • 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
    • 14.
      • Established waste management plan day one
      • Items to be salvaged
      • Recycling (ceiling tile, carpet….)
      • Specialty recycling (gypsum)
      • Packaging to limit waste
      • Handling mixed debris
    • 15.
      • 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)
    • 16.

      • 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)
    • 18.
      • 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
    • 19.
          • 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
    • 20.
      • 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
