Waste Audits

A waste audit helps your company meet LEED and BOMA BEST compliance for waste and recycling programs, while offering a series of practical recommendations that can assist in the implementation of waste reduction programs and can help save hauling costs over the long term.

The process employs a sort-and-weigh method of measuring the overall rate of waste diversion and the composition of waste, recycling, and organic streams. By analyzing a sampling of the waste generated, a review of quantitative and qualitative data provides a custom report which can be used to support company-wide sustainability initiatives and update building verifications for certifications such as LEED and BOMA BEST.

Waste Audit Options

In-Person Waste Audit 

Limited exposure sort-and-weigh waste audit to quantify material compositions of the landfill, recycling and compost stream. The resulting report provide comprehensive yet practical suggestions for waste reduction plans for your building to help your team reach your sustainability goals.  

  • Due to COVID, extra safety precautions will be in place and no volunteers will be assisting in the procedure 

  • LEED and BOMA Best compliant procedures 

  • Building must be at a minimum of 50% capacity and have no known COVID cases

Waste Audit Update (Compliant with BOMA BEST Pathway 1) 

Report created based on a past BOMA compliant waste audit, using waste compositions and 12 months of building specific pick-up weights (from hauler). The customized report will include recommendations for future waste diversion to support your company’s sustainability initiatives. 

  • Hauler must provide building-specific weights for each waste stream (waste, recycling, compost) prior to March 2020  

  • Capture rates cannot be calculated

Planned Proposal (Compliant with BOMA BEST Pathway 2 and 3) 

A customized proposal outlining the planned schedule, check-ins, cost, and procedure of the future in-person waste audit. A Green Calgary consultant will help keep you on track with your building’s sustainability goals. The waste audit will be performed only once the building has reached 50% capacity prior to June 30, 2021 (date may change based on future circumstances of COVID-19).  

  • Pathway 2 is for clients that have previously performed a BOMA Best compliant waste audit  

  • Pathway 3 is for clients that have not performed a BOMA Best compliant waste audit

  • Price of proposal is non-refundable and will go towards the future in-person waste audit prior to June 30, 2021
