A Non-Profit Transforming Waste into Resources Menu

C&D Waste Management

Are your projects meeting your C&D waste diversion expectations? WasteCap can write C&D specifications, review waste haulers, prepare waste management plans, provide on-site education, conduct inspections, track project performance and publicize final reports.

By utilizing WasteCap TRACE, its proprietary software, WasteCap will keep all of your project’s documentation in one convenient location.

Scope of Work

WasteCap can provide the following services, packaged together or selected a-la-carte:

Specifications

The first step for project success is clearly defined specifications for reuse and recycling of your waste streams. WasteCap will provide an editable template that can be customized to your projects needs, while retaining best management practices.

Bid Preparation & Review of Waste Haulers

Let WasteCap take the headache out of reviewing and writing bids for trash and recycling collection. WasteCap will recommend haulers based on their past performance and cost. WasteCap can handle any or all waste hauler contracts.

Based on your preference, the waste hauler can report directly to the general contractor or be a subcontractor under WasteCap. This will reduce your paperwork and on-site management for pickup requests and scheduling.

Database Access

 WasteCap will utilize its Resource Directory to provide you with options within your desired service radius. WasteCap will be able to provide technical assistance, market information and research support.

Waste Management Plan

Creating a construction and demolition waste management plan is a crucial step for your project’s success. WasteCap will develop and implement a plan that will:

  • Establish waste diversion goals for the project by identifying a minimum of five materials (both structural and nonstructural) targeted for diversion and approximate the percentage of the overall project waste from these targeted materials.
  • Specify whether materials will be separated or commingled and describe the diversion strategies planned for the project.
  • Include a description of where the materials will be taken and how the recycling facility will process the material.

Exemptions

Not all materials are easily reused or recycled. Disposal of certain materials has health and other environmental considerations. When appropriate, WasteCap can assist in obtaining exemptions from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for the recycling of materials.

On-site Education & Instruction

On-site workshops focused on waste management plan implementation save you the work required to repeatedly instruct site teams or manually separate waste that’s been incorrectly directed.

WasteCap will instruct the contractor, employees and subcontractors about their role in the program. WasteCap will also ensure the the proper placement, timing and labeling of collection bins. If requested, an additional fee for signage will be applied.

Ongoing Inspections

Regular site and process inspections keep your team on track. WasteCap will interview job site crews, check for missorted materials and correct any errors. Monthly reports of your materials (by weight and volume) will inform you of progress, deficiencies and remediation possibilities.

Tracking and Reporting

WasteCap will compile waste tickets, metrics and reports all in one convenient location. Utilizing WasteCap TRACE, WasteCap will digitally track and produce comprehensive project evaluations. This includes weight, volume, GHG emissions and financial impact. A final report will be completed upon project completion. The WasteCap team will also publicize your results through a case study and press release.
