604-Trash-It: the LEED Program

604-Trash-It’s continued goal is to implement successful waste management plans specifically designed to minimize your environmental impact. We are committed to providing our clients with the necessary skill and experience to create and sustain an environmentally focused building project.

Our sustainable waste management practices are recognized by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)—an internationally recognized rating system for commercial buildings and homes administered by the CaGBC (Canada Green Building Council).

What is LEED?

LEED provides a recognized standard for developing more sustainable and energy efficient buildings. The objective of this certification is to create a healthier environment for residents by promoting the design, construction, and maintenance of buildings that conserve energy, use fewer resources, and minimize pollution.

How the LEED Rating System works

In order for a project to receive LEED certification, there are a number of prerequisite measures that must be met. The LEED Rating System is separated into credit categories where points can be earned. The number of points accumulated will determine the level of certification the project will receive. There are four levels of certification—certified, silver, gold, and platinum.

To earn important points, debris from construction, demolition, packaging, and land clearing needs to be diverted from landfills, with reusable materials going to appropriate destinations.

604-Trash-It has the experience and the proper training to successfully perform LEED certified projects. We will also generate, track, and document your reports in accordance to the LEED criteria, helping you attain your recycling compliance goals.
