Documentation of this credit was easy because we are using a hauler who has a CORR certified facility that is near to our job. We tried this pilot credit once before and did not achieve it because the drivers took the waste to the facility nearest the project, which was not their CORR certified facility. I think the verified recycling rate is very important, so I am hoping to see more facilities become certified. I feel that a focus on the waste streams is pertinent to shifting the marketplace and driving momentum on hard to recycle material streams, at the same time a huge focus needs to stay on the commingled materials handlers, as they handle the bulk of materials. Maybe inclusion of certified facilities is a great way to go to give more legitimacy to commingled waste hauling while still focusing on driving progress with individual materials streams.
