MR Prerequisite: Construction and Demolition Waste Management Planning

  • Be sure that excavated soil, land clearing debris, and alternative daily cover (ADC) are excluded from the calculations.
  • Ensure that the construction waste management plan (CWMP) identifies at least five different materials for diversion and includes the anticipated percentage of total waste that the material steams represent. Include on-site diversion strategies or explain why on-site diversion strategies are not available.
  • In the construction waste management plan (CWMP), make sure to address soil, land clearing debris, hazardous materials, and other materials not contributing to the diversion. Even materials that cannot be used toward credit compliance must be addressed in the CWMP.
  • When materials are donated or given away, be sure that the construction waste management plan indicates how the materials will be tracked (including how much is received and information about where the materials are going).
