Use SKB for your LEED project
SKB’s Integrated C&D Recycling System achieves a recovery rate of over 90%, which means that using our facilities will guarantee your project will achieve 2 LEED certification points (for MR2.1 & MR2.2) with the potential for an additional point for exemplary performance. In addition to our recycling services, purchasing recycled material products from SKB (such as recycled concrete, asphalt, shingles, etc.) will count toward LEED credits for Recycled Content (MR4.1 & MR4.2) and Regional Materials (MR5.1 & MR5.2).
SKB Recycling will provide contractors and consultants with all the documentation necessary for your LEED project certification. We track every load that enters our system and every load of recycled material and residuals we send out. SKB Recycling’s Integrated C&D Recycling System is unique in that we have multiple facilities conveniently located in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, which offers our customers the ability to efficiently route their loads—reducing transportation time, fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
SKB Recycling also exceeds Minnesota's Sustainable Building Guidelines (B3) 75% landfill diversion rate for C&D.
