Credit 4   Recycled Content  1-2 Possible Points

     According to U.S. Green Building Council LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations, the intent of this credit is to increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials. (LEED 2009 for New Construction and Major Renovations, Page 52).

     The steel used in Flexospans panels typically contains an average post-consumer recycled content of 25.5% and an average post-industrial (pre-consumer) recycled content of 6.8% based on data published by the Steel Recycling Institute (November 2009).  

     This value is based on data from the Steel Recycling Institute publication Steel Takes LEED with Recycled Content (March 2009).  Because of unique project circumstances, it is the responsibility of your LEED project team to determine if your project is eligible for certification and whether Credit 4 for Recycled Content points will be available for the Flexospan product supplied to your particular project.
