LEED MRc4 Products

Materials and Resources - Credits 4.1 and 4.2 : Recycled Content, Post-Consumer + 0.5 Pre-Consumer

This credit is designed to increase the demand for recycled materials in construction. BuildSite Green Data provides the post- and pre-consumer recycled content of participating manufacturers’ products to help in achieving this credit.

The total recycled content of a project’s materials is determined by cost. The contribution of each material in a construction project is determined by its cost relative to the total materials cost for the project.

Post-consumer recycled content comes from products that have been consumed by household, commercial, industrial, or institutional end-users. The material can no longer be used for its intended purpose, but it is diverted from the waste stream and recycled (or “downcycled”) into a new product.

Pre-consumer content (also known as post-industrial content) is waste generated by a manufacturing process that cannot be reused in that same process. It is diverted from the waste stream and recycled into a new product.
