Credit 2: Construction Waste Management 
1–2  LEED points

Intent
To divert construction and demolition debris from disposal in landfills and incineration facilities. Redirect 

Recyclable 
Recovered resources back to the manufacturing process and reusable materials to appropriate sites. 

Requirements
Recycle and/or salvage nonhazardous construction and demolition debris. Develop and implement construction 
waste management plan that, at a minimum, identifies the materials to be diverted from disposal and whether the materials will be sorted on-site or comingled. Excavated soil and land-clearing debris do not contribute to this credit. 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 point
         75% - 2 points

Potential 
Technologies & Strategies
Establish goals for diversion from disposal in landfills and incineration facilities and adopt a construction waste management plan to achieve these goals. Consider recycling cardboard, metal, brick, mineral fiber panel, concrete, plastic, clean wood, glass, gypsum wallboard, carpet and insulation. Construction debris processed into a recycled content commodity that has an open market value (e.g., wood derived fuel [WDF], alternative daily cover material, etc.) may be applied to the construction waste calculation. Designate a specific area(s) on the construction site for segregated or commingled collection of recyclable materials, and track recycling efforts throughout the construction process. Identify construction haulers and recyclers to handle the designated materials. Note that diversion may include donation of materials to charitable organizations and salvage of materials on-site
