LEED® and C&D diversion assistance
We can provide all the documentation you need to meet the waste management requirements for LEED projects and C&D ordinances.
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.
Due to equipment failure, the Q1, Q2, and Q3 2018 Diversion Rates are below 65%. New equipment was installed in August, 2018. We anticipate a return to a Diversion Rate above 65% for Q4 2018. 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 (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.

For a Fee
We can provide detailed wastes audits of the materials collected for a fee depending on the size and complexity of materials. There is a minimum report fee of $125 (and a charge of $75 and 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.
Give us a call at 415-456-2601. Specify to Customer Service that this is a LEED and/or C&D diversion project so they can direct you to the right person.
Please notify the attendant at the scale house that you will need documentation of the materials being sorted BEFORE you enter the facility.
