Waste Management Agency, Inc. (BVSWMA, Inc.) Twin Oaks Landfill in Grimes County, Texas, has been awarded Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
This is the first municipal solid waste landfill facility in the nation to be awarded LEED certification for all on-‐site infrastructure.
What is LEED?
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green
Building Council. It provides third-‐party verification that a building or community was designed and built with the following strategies in mind: energy savings, water efficiency, carbon-‐dioxide emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
How LEED standards were built into the new landfill
Twin Oaks Landfill includes more than 18,000 square feet of area constructed to LEED-‐ Silver requirements in three structures: a driver service area, an administration office and an equipment maintenance building. Some of the LEED components of this facility include water-‐saving fixtures, energy-‐saving lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, and the use of recycled and local products as construction materials. The roadway parking infrastructure of the landfill facility also is part of the LEED certification through the use of concrete surfaces that reflect heat.
Protecting an endangered species
In addition to the LEED certification, Twin Oaks Landfill expands on its commitment to the environment and to the local community with the preservation of more than 160 acres of property that serves as a natural habitat for the endangered Navasota ladies’-‐ tresses orchid.
“The citizens of the entire Brazos Valley should be very proud to be leaders in the area of environmental stewardship and responsible municipal solid waste disposal” said BVSWMA, Inc. Executive Director Bryan Griesbach. “The Twin Oaks Landfill has already attracted environmental professionals from around the country who came to tour this one-‐of-‐a-‐kind facility, and I’m sure many more will follow as the facility provides for the region’s solid waste disposal needs for the next several decades.”
