Lookup Value?: Recycled Materials

From Lookup Field?: GreenSustainability Lookups

Definition (May contain conditions that must apply)

Structure includes multiple products that have a significant amount of postconsumer recycled content. Major green building programs tend to use 25 percent postconsumer recycled content as a threshold. Postindustrial recycled content tends to count toward overall content, but to a less scale. Some more common examples of recycled content materials include masonry, paving stones, or foundations with fly ash; aluminum gutters and downspouts; decking; drywall fibers, insulation, and house wrap; vinyl plastics; countertops; and cabinets, interior doors, or trim. More details are available on Home Innovation Research Labs “Browse Green Certified Products” tool or LEED Environmentally Preferred Products credit table.
