Construction Waste Management Plans

The goal of a construction waste management plan is to reduce the amount of construction waste being sent to the landfill. The plan is a written document that outlines what materials you will recycle at your project site, where the materials are going, how they will be separated, as well as who is responsible for managing the materials.

City of Fort Collins – New construction projects in the City of Fort Collins are required to have a written Construction Waste Management Plan outlining how one will recycle concrete, wood, cardboard and metal as part of the Green Building Code http://www.fcgov.com/building/pdf/green-constr-waste-plan.pdf


LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Gallegos Sanitation has a dedicated LEED Green Associate onsite to help your project achieve the material and resource credits. Our LEED Program trains project managers, superintendents, and subcontractors on how to divert large amounts of waste from the landfill. Diverting waste from the landfill is done through the creation of a construction waste management plan, waste stream audits and both reuse and recycling of project waste.

In 2011, GSI supported the Construction Waste Management for LEED Certified projects such as the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery and The Lincoln Center.

Construction Materials GSI Can Recycle Include:

Asphalt, Concrete, Drywall, Glass, Metals, PVC Piping and Fencing, Wood, and Cardboard. If there is an abundance of non-recyclable materials on a job site, GSI will research alternative options for landfill diversion such as donation of materials to local salvage material organizations.

A monthly weight report is emailed to you so you track your progress.
