OWRR must be placed on the pre-bid
meeting agenda to discuss regulatory requirements, the
required solid waste management plan, and distribute resource
lists to the bidders.
OWRR must be placed on the pre-construction
meeting agenda to review the above topics, meet or get the
contact info for the project contact, and discuss monthly reporting
Prior to the creation of the
Final Solid Waste Management Plan, a meeting is needed to review the Draft
Plan and discuss monthly reporting requirements. This meeting is to include
the Contractor, the UNC Construction Manager, and OWRR?s Construction and
Demolition Waste Specialist. Subcontractors may also be included in this
meeting or subsequent follow up meetings, as necessary.
Throughout the construction process
and prior to project completion, OWRR, the Construction Manager, or
the Contractor may request periodic meetings to discuss progress
or difficulties encountered with the development, implementation or
reporting of plan requirements.
|The Contractor is required to
submit a Draft Solid Waste Management Plan
(Section 01505) five days from Notice to Proceed OR prior to removal of ANY waste from

Payment Application. Failure to do so may delay payment.
This submittal must be in an OWRR approved format
and the summary must be filled out electronically.
accordance with Section 02070, items
or materials identified during the design process for salvage or reuse

Also, the University, as a State institution,
is accountable for controlled property and equipment including
electrical, mechanical, and plumbing equipment. The Contractor shall
deliver any surplus equipment to the Surplus Property Warehouse and
return a receipt for the equipment to the Facilities Services Data
At the completion of the project, the design team is to provide OWRR and

- quantities landfilled, recycled, reused, and salvaged;
- a break down of the types of materials recycled, reused and
- salvaged; the percent of total waste of each of the categories listed;
- the destinations of these materials;

- any success stories or challenges incurred.
