MR Prereq 1: Storage & Collection of Recyclables



To satisfy this prereq, the buiding must provide for an area that is dedicated to the separation, collection and storage of materials of at least paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastic and metal. [fyi: you must remember this for the exam!]

The minimum recycling area requirement ranges from 82 sf - 500 sf depending on the square footage of the building.

*** An interesting note is that of all the building types, hospitals generates the most amount of solid waste/day!

Yes, these minimum areas are simply guidelines.

The author of this article may have been living near a river, or a creek, in Iran, and this cannot be generalized to everyone. This cannot be generalized to everyone living in the Persian Empire in the past.
