Construction Waste Reduction

In addition to a general Waste Reduction Plan, it is important for large projects to specify its waste management goals in subcontractor agreements. This assures that the expectations and procedures are communicated clearly to everyone. The following is a sample specification in a subcontractor agreement:

"The subcontractor will make a good faith effort to reduce the amount of waste generated on the job-site and recycle material as per the contractor's Waste Reduction Plan. The subcontractor will follow the designated handling procedures for each type of waste generated on-site and provide documentation to verify material reuse, recycling, and disposal as indicated in the waste Reduction Plan."
