Building owners are increasingly seeking out new methods and technologies for handling their waste streams in order to minimize the amount they need to send to landfills. This course describes a series of strategies that architects can use to help their clients manage waste sustainably – and reduce their waste management costs – by design. The course reviews a systems-based approach to planning for the diversion and/or recycling of waste products during construction; discusses what types of waste can be recycled and where it goes; describes the role that architects can play in designing facilities to optimize waste management after occupancy; and reviews how effective waste management plans can earn LEED points during construction and after occupancy.
