What does it cost?

Cost estimates for this credit

On each BD+C v4 credit, LEEDuser offers the wisdom of a team of architects, engineers, cost estimators, and LEED experts with hundreds of LEED projects between then. They analyzed the sustainable design strategies associated with each LEED credit, but also to assign actual costs to those strategies.

Our tab contains overall cost guidance, notes on what “soft costs” to expect, and a strategy-by-strategy breakdown of what to consider and what it might cost, in percentage premiums, actual costs, or both.

This information is also available in a full PDF download in The Cost of LEED v4 report.

Description of change:
Edit the fourth paragraph under "Commingled, source separated and counting materials streams" section to read as follows:

"All recycling facilities must be regulated by a local or state authority. Note that regulatory authorities often do not regulate recycling rates of facilities. To determine the mixed waste processing facility recycling rate, projects must use an average diversion rate for the facility that generally corresponds to the time materials were generated on the project and sent to the facility. The average recycling rate for the facility must exclude ADC. Mixed recyclable materials that are processed mechanically over the same recycling line are counted as one “stream” in LEED, even if the processing facility separates the output into multiple materials for recovery after processing."
