  5. Proper storage and transportation: Store and transport materials in a manner that prevents contamination and damage.

  6. Educate employees and contractors: Educate employees and contractors on the importance of recycling and the proper methods for sorting and storing materials.

  7. Keep track of waste and recycling: Keep track of the waste generated during a construction project and ensure that it is properly disposed of and recycled.
