The contractor on our project has established a weighing station for trucks and vehicles within the project boundary and is planning to use it to measure the amount of diverted waste for MRc2. The waste is taken off site by a different hauling company. In this case, the waste tickets or receipts showing the quantities of diverted waste will be issued by the contractor (not the hauler or the entity receiving the waste like the paper or steel recycling companies) but the documents are signed by both. Would this be acceptable by GBCI or should the receipts be issued by the party receiving the waste?

Rashed - So there is no central entity who is receiving all the waste and sending it out to be recycled? And each receiving entity has its own hauler or truck coming to your site? Ideally the receipts or a report should come from the party (parties) receiving the waste.
Here's the reasoning: While the weight will be verified by the tickets/receipts, you do not have any backup where the materials were taken or that they were recycled at all. You just have proof that a certain amount of waste left your site. Personally I would want to have something to back up where this waste went, and I can imagine GBCI could ask for it. Maybe you already have that and did not include it your description above? If not, I would suggest having something from your haulers that verify the location the materials were taken (recycler or landfill) and the disposition of them from that destination (if applicable).
