Benefits of LEED Certification

Obtaining LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification for your next construction or remodeling project will allow you to take advantage of incentives and savings that aren’t available to traditional construction projects. Our team is ready to provide LEED compliant C&D waste disposal standards for your project. This will reduce the environmental impact, and save hauling and disposal costs by keeping valuable C&D materials out of landfills.
