To divert construction and demolition debris from disposal in landfills and incineration facilities. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process and redirect reusable materials to appropriate sites.

Requirements

Recycle and/or salvage non-hazardous construction and demolition debris. Calculations can be done by weight or volume, but must be consistent throughout. The minimum percentage debris to be recycled or salvaged for each point threshold is as follows:

% Recycled or Salvaged Points
50% 1
70% 2
