Hello, we are currently working on a new building under LEED V4, and we have doubts regarding what is considered a material "stream".
Our current solution involves a Certified Waste Management service that is authorized to remove and transport our materials to recycling facilities. This service picks up two containers that contain the 5 materials we have targeted to divert from landfills, they later separate these materials and send them to different facilities that recycle in their own way (every time the containers are taken, we are handed a report that indicates the amount of each material that was recycled).
Considering that we can get ahold of the information regarding how each of the 5 materials are treated and what percentage of it has been recycled individually, does this allow us to comply with 5 streams? Or as they're all being recycled does it just count as 1 single stream?
