Facilitate the reduction of waste generated by building occupants that is hauled to and disposed of in landfills.
Conduct a waste stream audit to identify the top 5 recyclable waste streams by either weight or volume. The Waste Study shall categorize all waste streams consistently by either weight or volume, identify which waste streams are recyclable, and list the 3 waste streams for which collection and storage space will be provided. If no information is available on a typical waste stream for the project, projects should make projections based on the types of waste their operations will produce.
Provide an easily accessible area that serves the retail project and is dedicated to the separation, collection and storage of materials for the minimum of the top 3 recyclable waste streams as identified by a Waste Study.
Examples of potential waste streams include: hazardous or special waste as defined by local code, plastic film, plastics, metals, paper, cardboard, food waste, glass.
