Marin Sanitary Commercial Contractor ServicesLEED® AND C&D DIVERSION ASSISTANCE

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.

We can provide all the documentation you need to meet the waste management requirements for LEED projects and C&D ordinances.

Diversion Reports

If you do not need a detailed analysis of your materials, or if you have a single source of material such as pure concrete or asphalt shingles, we can provide you with a letter that shows the material(s) recycled, weights, and the quarterly facility diversion rate.

For contractors that need to reach higher diversion rates, it is recommended that materials be source separated. If you haul to the facility on your own, please inform the facility you use (the booth on Jacoby or the scale house on Andersen) of the contents of the load (i.e. concrete). This way, the material will be noted on the scale ticket and can be used to show a higher overall diversion rate. If you rent debris boxes from MSS, please inform customer service when you order the box what material will be placed in the box. All “Mixed Debris” boxes will receive the facility diversion rate.

2019 Diversion Reports

2018 Diversion Reports

Please note that due to equipment failure, the Q1, Q2, and Q3 2018 Diversion Rates are below 65%. New equipment was installed in August of 2018. We anticipate a return to a Diversion Rate above 65% for Q4 2018.

Detailed Wastes Audits

For a fee, we can provide detailed wastes audits of the materials collected depending on the size and complexity of materials. There is a minimum report fee of $125 (and a charge of $75 an hour for sorting) for a detailed report that includes pictures of the waste stream, analysis of the stream, and suggestions on ways to divert more materials.
