Where a building’s recyclable waste is sorted off-site, BREEAM requirements relating to segregation of recyclable waste need not be met. In such cases, the assessor should provide evidence of the following:
- That a waste management plan is in place which provides adequate storage for the frequency of collection
- That the space could reasonably be converted to comply with all BREEAM waste storage requirements if required
- That an on-going co-mingled waste recycling contract is in place
- The typical recycling rates from the waste management company
BREEAM assesses the sustainability of the building itself rather than the management practices of the current occupier.
