Waste Audit

US Treasury Dept DC Campus | Washington, DC | Completed: 2010

The U.S. Treasury Building complex, including a Main Building and an Annex, is located at 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C. MSW Consultants was retained to perform a waste audit to support the Main Building's pursuit of LEED Existing Building Operating and Maintenance certification. MSW Consultants obtained appropriate clearance to conduct this audit. In addition to achieving LEED certification, the analysis of the Treasury Building waste stream included a physical evaluation of the disposed wastes and recyclables for the purpose of identifying potentially recyclable materials contained in the waste stream, and estimated the capture rate of materials currently targeted in the Main Building's recycling program.
