LEED

Lone Star Disposal specializes in hauling and processing waste for LEED certified projects.  We offer recycling solutions that virtually no other hauler in the Houston market can – either comingled or source separated at the jobsite.  This allows project managers the flexibility to choose how they recycle for maximum efficiency on the job.

 

Commingled Recycling 

With comingled recycling, the customer places all debris into one container, which we haul to our licensed recycling facility for processing.  This method reduces the number of containers required at a customer’s location, thus preserving valuable jobsite space.  It also alleviates worker confusion and the need for additional man-hours to constantly monitor what is being thrown into the various recycle containers required for source separated collection.  Our highly trained staff sorts the waste, separating the recyclables from the residual and documents the volume/yardage of each commodity on Load Inspection Forms.  Specific commodity information from the Load Inspection Forms is then entered into the Lone Star Disposal LEED Project Tracking Tool.  This tool automatically tracks the amount of material recycled by commodity from each job and even compares the total amount recycled to a job specific recycling goal.  The LEED Project Tracking Tool is kept on file and forwarded to the customer upon request.

Source Separated Recycling

We can also provide customers with a source separated recycling option.  Using this system, we provide a separate container for each recyclable commodity as well as a general waste container at the jobsite.  The customer is responsible for separating the recyclables and loading them into their respective containers.  Lone Star Disposal will then haul the source separated recycling containers directly to the appropriate commodity recycling facility.  Recycling volumes are then entered into the job specific Lone Star Disposal LEED Project Tracking Tool for reporting purposes, just as with our commingled recycling program.
