LEED Reporting Services

Cooper Recycling provides LEED reports by request and is available per load and job site. Currently, we are the only recycling facility in NY to have received certification from the Recycling Certification Institute (RCI). Under LEED v4 MRpc87 US Green Building Council will provide an extra LEED point for C&D material that is taken to certified facilities such as ours.

The program, developed by the Construction & Demolition Recyclers Association & USGBC, strives to ensure integrity, transparency and reliability in the recovery / recycling reports of participating C&D recycling facilities.

Per MRpc87, project teams must:
1) Meet the minimum recycling requirements of the C&D credit(s) in the applicable LEED rating system; and,
2) Utilize a recycling facility that processes and recycles comingled C&D materials that has received third party certification of their recycling rates.
