On-Site Recycling, Waste Management

The RainShine House received 18 points toward the LEED certification under the LEED MR3.2 and Earthcraft waste management guidelines. These guidelines require a waste management plan to be implemented on the site during construction. Strategies include chipping and recycling formwork, drywall, etc. as seen in the photos below. One requirement states that the plan must be clearly labeled on site, as seen on the containment area in the photo below. For more information on Earthcraft requirements, please visit their website.
