Recycling at Rancho Verde has two components. The first is in the thoughtful use of resources during construction of the project. Over 20% of the materials used in the building’s construction were manufactured locally while more than 13% of the value of materials used came from post-consumer or post-industrial content. Additionally, 75% of the site’s construction waste was diverted from landfill.

On-going recycling efforts include both field and office staff. Each office desk has a recycling trash "combo" and there are recycling stations no more than 10 seconds walk from any desk. Space is provided to recycle paper, cardboard, metals, glass and plastic in all common areas. Also, recycling/trash sorting stations are provided in the parking area where workers return from the field and empty their trucks each day.
