Successful construction waste management planning predicts the types and quantities of waste materials generated, determines the most cost effective outlet for these materials, assigns responsibility for oversight and equips the team with the handling instructions needed to meet project goals. Daniel Hartsig, Director of Project Management at WasteCap Wisconsin will highlight the key characteristics of each of these areas and why they’re important to the project team.
Lincoln Public Schools requires that all recyclable material such as wood, metal, and cardboard be separated from trash during building and remodeling projects to divert as much of this waste from the landfill as possible. Brittney Albin, Sustainability Coordinator for Lincoln Public Schools will talk about contract requirements, oversight, and outcomes on their building and remodeling projects since implementing this policy.
