ABOUT THIS COURSE:
Over 90% of construction waste can be recycled. Oftentimes however, unless a project is pursuing LEED credits, waste isn’t managed carefully enough to do so. The way in which waste is generated, managed, and collected from the jobsite greatly impacts the recyclability of the material. Sorting technology, local infrastructure, and commodity markets dictate the rest. While it’s very important to select a responsible waste hauler and sorter, the ultimate recyclability of each material depends on how it is managed on the jobsite.
This on-demand class will highlight the specific, cost-effective opportunities to improve material diversion rates on construction projects, and how careful management and tracking can help.
This on-demand class is a GPRO Construction Management elective should take approximatley 65 minutes to complete.
AFTER THIS COURSE, STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
- Describe the impact that construction waste has on the natural environment
- Use the hierarchy of waste reduction opportunities to limit overall waste intensity
- Implement strategies on a jobsite to increase landfill diversion percentage
- Gather and communicate consistent, accurate and compliant waste data
CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS:
To receive continuing education credits, students must achieve an 80% on the learning comprehension quiz at the end of the course. The quiz can be taken as many times as needed in order to pass.
