1 A Free, Confidential & Non-Regulatory Program Smart Waste Management alternatives for Iowa business & industry Reduce Reuse Recycle

2  Grant-funded, free, confidential and non- regulatory program  Administrated by Iowa DNR  7 IWE reps located throughout the state Program Success: 3,366,457 TONS diverted from landfill disposal $87,251,878 in cost savings to companies

3 Jim Reimer Area 6 Resource Specialist 641-938-2845

4  Types / quantities of wastes generated  Recycling markets for wastes  Re-usable materials to meet your needs  Waste reduction strategies  Waste Audits / Waste management plans  Funding opportunities  Educational programs

5 Economic  Avoid disposal cost  Avoid material purchase  Receive payment for re-usable and recyclable materials  Identify and correct inefficiencies in processes Environmental  Protect the environment  Avoid regulatory compliance/liability issues  Foster “good neighbor” image  Establish protocols for waste management SOP, EMS, LEED

6  foundry sand  noodles  portland cement  55 gallon steel drums  disinfecting solution  masonry sealant  cotton/poly fabric  golf cart bodies  urethane foam  pallets & wood waste  toilet paper holders  rubber floor mats  old law books  plastic spools  powder coat paint  mineral spirits

8 All non-hazardous solid waste resulting from construction & demolition activities. Ceiling tiles Drywall Porcelain Asphalt Fluorescent lights Window glass Asphalt shingles Insulation Wood Bricks Land clearing debris Cardboard Field Office wastes Building Carpet & pad Metals interior Concrete Paint fixtures Dirt Plastic film

9 ResidentialBusiness/Industry Paper Organics Plastic Construction Top 5 Materials for Residential/Industrial Combined: 1.Food Waste 2.Cardboard and Kraft Paper 3.Film Plastic 4.Compostable Paper 5.Untreated Wood 20% 29% 32%20% 14% 18% 11% 16%

10  C & D waste $42.00 per ton  Untreated, clean lumber $20.00 per ton (ground and used at landfill during wet weather)  Clean concrete, no wire, 6-8 inch pieces taken for free (road base at landfill) Great River Regional Waste Authority

11  Cost Reduction Minimizing materials through planning and recycling Waste hauling and disposal costs lowered Architectural Salvage profits  Public Relations Marketing to clients interested in environmental initiatives  Certification Qualify for green building certification – LEED, NAHB, USEPA  Tax Deduction Donate deconstructed materials to non-profit  Environmental Footprint Reduction Less depletion of natural resources, use less energy and water than manufacturing new materials, create less pollution, reduce greenhouse gasses

12  Waste Reduction Goals and Requirements  Bid Spec/Construction Waste Mgmt. Spec  Timetable  Reuse and Recycling Markets  Designate a Recycling Coordinator  Monitoring Tools and Reports  Site Logistics  Educating Employees and Sub- Contractors

13  Reduce – look for ways waste can be prevented in the first place  Reuse – what can be salvaged for use in the project, or donated  Recycle – important to identify markets for recyclable materials early in the project Landfill Reduce Reuse Recycle Waste-to-Energy

14 Asphalt plants - shingles Concrete for fill or crushed for aggregate Architectural Salvage Donation to Preservation Station / ReStore Ceiling tile / carpet take-back programs Bricks to landscapers Cardboard/Metal/Plastic Recyclers Wood for mulch, animal bedding, energy

15  Drywall  Fiberglass Insulation/Fiberglass  Window Glass  “Dirty Loads” – materials not separated  Hazardous or asbestos-containing materials

16 Material Recovery Facility Co-mingled C&D materials arrive and are sorted for recycling by a combination of mechanical and hand-sorting Source-Separated Recycling Facility Materials are separated at the job site for recycling – cardboard, wood, metal ……. Most cost-effective option

17  Do I pay you, or do you pay me?  Will you provide containers?  Will you pick up or do I have to deliver?  How much must I store before pickup?  Are pickups automatic, or when I call?  How will we keep track of weight of materials/quantity of materials?  What will happen to the materials I am recycling?


19 Feb 2006 – Apr 2008 Three Phase Project 1. Construct new police station 2. Demolish old police station 3. Construct new parking facility Total material generated: 17,126 cu yd Material recycled/reused: 16,239 cu yd 94.8% Recycled Cost for Recycling: $25,561 Avoided Landfill Cost: $117,040 (87% savings) Revenue from Recycling: $8,631

20  Cardboard – 9 tons recycled  Concrete/Asphalt – 18,000 ton recycled  Wood – 220 tons recycled  Metal – 91 tons recycled Reused Materials = 49 tons Wood and metal for construction Chain link fence from site Auction of materials/fixtures Habitat ReStore harvested prior to demolition
