Contractors can haul their own construction debris or use any Licensed Private Hauler to take debris to any of several facilities, including landfills or others described below. Haulers and facilities receiving the debris can provide the information a contractor needs to complete the online Construction Recycling Report.
Mixed C&D Debris Processors
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has authorized several facilities to process mixed (commingled) construction and demolition (C&D) debris.
For the Contractor’s Construction Recycling Report, most mixed C&D processors provide a Contractor with a weight ticket summary that itemizes landfilled and recycled tons for each load from the Affected Project. To provide that information, they have to examine each incoming load to determine the tons landfilled and tons recycled.
Austin Resource Recovery will register a mixed C&D processor as a Qualified Processor if it meets certain criteria, including having an independent third party validate the facility’s average diversion rate over several months. That simplifies both the processing and reporting for the Qualified Processor.
Instead of having to examine and report on each load from an Affected Project, a Qualified Processor can provide a contractor with a simpler report on the total tons received from an Affected Project and the Qualified Processor’s average diversion rate.
