Solid waste management - waste stream audit

MRc6 | Possible 1 point


To facilitate the reduction of ongoing waste and toxins generated by building occupants and building operations that are hauled to and disposed of in landfills or incineration facilities.


Conduct a waste stream audit of the building’s entire ongoing consumables waste stream (not durable goods or construction waste for facility alterations and additions). Use the audit’s results to establish a baseline that identifies the types of waste making up the waste stream and the amounts of each type by weight or volume. Identify opportunities for increased recycling and waste diversion. The audit must be conducted during the performance period.
