We Know LEED®!

leedToday, developers, property owners, construction management companies and general contractors are building new buildings and remodeling older buildings with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

To meet these standards, NER will provide roll-offs for source separation of recyclable material on site such as the following:

  • Concrete/Masonry Only
  • Asphalt Only
  • Brick Only
  • New Drywall (Gypsum) Only
  • Wood Only
  • Metal Only
  • Plastic/PVC Only
  • Cardboard Only

With NER being a licensed RECYCLING facility, you don’t have to source separate on-site! You can use ONE CONTAINER and we will separate the material back at our recycling facility and provide you with all of the proper paperwork to meet your LEED requirements for all of projects! NER has a large selection of roll-off container to suit all of your needs!

What is LEED?

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

The LEED Rating System was created to transform the built environment to sustainability by providing the building industry with consistent, credible standards for what constitutes a green building. The rating system is developed and continuously refined via an open, consensus-based process that has made LEED the green building standard of choice for Federal agencies and state and local governments nationwide.

The first step to LEED certification is to Register your project. A project is a viable candidate for LEED certification if it can meet all prerequisites and achieve the minimum number of points to earn the Certified level of LEED project certification. To earn certification, a building project must meet certain prerequisites and performance benchmarks (“credits”) within each category. Projects are awarded Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum certification depending on the number of credits they achieve. This comprehensive approach is the reason LEED-certified buildings have reduced operating costs, healthier and more productive occupants, and conserve our natural resources.
