MR Credit 3.1: Materials Reuse
INTENT: To reuse building materials and products to reduce demand for virgin materials and reduce waste, thereby lessening impacts associated with the extraction and processing of virgin resources.
REQUIREMENTS: Use salvaged, refurbished or reused materials, the sum of which constitutes at least 5% or 10%, based on cost, of building (construction) materials, excluding furniture and furnishings. The minimum percentage materials reused for each point threshold is as follows: 5%: 1 point, 10%: 2 points
MR Credit 3.2: Materials Reuse-
Furniture and Furnishings

INTENT: To reuse building materials and products to reduce demand for virgin materials and reduce waste, thereby reducing impacts associated with the extraction and processing of virgin resources.
REQUIREMENTS: Use salvaged, refurbished or used furniture and furnishings for 30% of the total furniture and furnishings budget.
MR Credit 4: Recycled Content
INTENT: To increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.
REQUIREMENTS: Use materials, including furniture and furnishings, with recycled content such that the sum of postconsumer recycled content plus 1/2 of the preconsumer content constitutes at least 10% or 20% based on cost of the total value of the materials in the project. The minimum percentage materials recycled for each point threshold is as follows:10%: 1 point, 20%: 2 points The recycled content value of a material or furnishing is determined by weight. The recycled fraction of the assembly is then multiplied by the cost of assembly to determine the recycled content value.
