Home Services LEED ® HUB About L&J Contact Us

Before you begin your project,
L&J has some suggestions:


After your initial contact with L&J Waste, we will schedule a meeting with the Lead Contracting Officer to plan waste management needs and the best way to carry out your plans safely, environmentally, and according to LEED®-NC standards. During the meeting the topics to be discussed are: Materials to be Recycled, Job Site Clean Up, Record Keeping/Reporting, and Variance Requirements per Subcontractor.

Once your needs are met, we will meet individually with the subcontractor(s) and all parties will be given a Green Building LEED® package, which will contain information about the process and procedures of your project as-well-as waste management and recycling.

It will be the responsibility of each subcontractor to ensure that their individual crews comply with the waste management plan by assigning an LEED® coordinator, once the information is distributed.

Waste management and recycling will be the basis of each subcontractor orientation and field meeting.

A monthly progress report from the general contractor should be submitted to ensure that everything is on track for maintaining your project goals.

Record Keeping/Reports

A monthly progress report from the general contractor should be submitted to ensure that everything is on track for maintaining your project goals.

L&J Waste Recycling will maintain and provide Waste Management Audits, Weight Tickets, Destination Reports, Onsite Waste Log, Overall Waste Diversion, and Invoices detailing all cost. The information will be used to complete the LEED® 2.1 letter template. LEED® reporting will be made weekly, bimonthly, or monthly depending upon what was agreed upon during the contract negotiation and orientation.

Clean Up

Not only is a clean site safe, it makes it easier to make out how must waste is being generated. Site subcontractors will be instructed to clean their areas daily and all cleaning will be done so at the expense of the subcontractor. Hazardous waste and materials will be disposed of in accordance with Hazmat standards.


L&J Waste Recycling will be responsible for the handling and disposal of miscellaneous debris that may be encountered at the building site during development. The sorting and separation  of wastes will be done a L&J Waste Recycling, which is an LEED® compliant waste management company.


Waste materials not suitable for reuse will be disposed of at an off-site landfill or incinerator. First consideration will be given to salvage for recycling. Any reuse will be coordinated via the Lead Contractor. Each subcontractor will be monitored to ensure that accurate measurements of materials they are providing on-site. L&J Waste will inspect all materials prior to delivery to its waste facility. In the event that substandard materials are found, they will be sorted on-site (project) until they can be picked up by the supplier.

Separation & Delivery

In accordance with the LEED® Program, materials that are recovered at our facility include, but are not limited to: drywall, plastic, cardboard and paper, plastic, wood (unpainted and untreated), metal (ferrous and non-ferrous), aggregate materials (concrete, asphalt, dirt, and other earthen materials).

Bulk recycling dumpsters will be stored at a location on-site agreeable by both L&J Waste Recycling and the Lead Contractor and subcontractors. Salvageable waste products will be protected and stored at the building site by a method that maximizes recovery of identified materials.

Quantities Estimation Examples

L&J Waste Recycling will provide dumpsters for all mixed recyclables. All construction waste will be delivered to the L&J Waste Recycling facility and then separated into the correct categories. They will then be weighed and the tonnage figures will be converted into landfill diversion percentages for the project.
