16B.327 RECYCLING CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION WASTE FROM STATE BUILDINGS; REQUIREMENT.

The commissioner shall require in contracts for the construction, renovation, or demolition of a state building that the contractor and any subcontractor must divert from deposit in a landfill and must recycle at least 50 percent of the nonhazardous construction and demolition waste, measured by tonnage or volume, produced by the project or demonstrate that the waste was delivered to construction and demolition waste recycling facilities that maintain a 50 percent annual recycling rate. This requirement applies to a project to construct, renovate, or demolish a state building that receives funding from the bond proceeds fund after January 1, 2011, provided that:

(1) the project is located within 40 miles of a construction and demolition waste recycling facility that meets the requirements of this section and can process the applicable building materials; and

(2) for construction and renovation projects, funding from the bond proceeds fund is $5,000,000 or more.

For the purposes of this section, "state building" means a building wholly owned or leased by a state agency, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, or the University of Minnesota.
