is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Due to the increase of hurricane generated debris, the greater New Orleans area land fills have had to comply with present and new rules from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ).  LDEQ has a representative at all land fill cells inspecting each and every load for acceptable and unacceptable debris.  The land fills have established additional protocols including policy and procedures for all transporters; therefore we must pass the information to our clients to insure that all debris put into STCS, LLC’s containers are of an acceptable nature.

Below is a list of acceptable and unacceptable debris. Please note that we can transport most unacceptable debris.  However, there will be an up-charge on the load of unacceptable debris.

Non hazardous waste generally considered not water-soluble, including but not limited to metal, concrete, brick, asphalt, roofing material, sheetrock, plaster, lumber from a construction demolition and other building structure materials, furniture carpet, painted or stained lumber yard waste and other vegetative matter.

The incidental admixture of construction and demolition debris with asbestos-contaminated waste (i.e. incidental asbestos-contaminated debris that cannot be extracted from the demolition debris)

  • Asbestos Containing Materials (i.e. asbestos roofing shingles, siding and insulation)
  • White Goods (i.e. refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, air conditioners, dishwashers, motors containing oil, mattresses, and sofas)
  • Electronic Equipment (i.e. TV’s, computers, monitors, printers, fax machines, stereos)
  • Tires (i.e. any and all rubber types of car, truck, tractor, bicycle, tires)
  • Compressed Cylinders (i.e. Propane tanks, oxygen tanks, acetylene tanks, batteries)
  • Garbage (i.e. Bags of trash containing consumable foods and food products)
  • Household Hazard Waste (i.e. full or partially full paint cans, pesticides, herbicides, cleaning products, solvents)
  • Contaminated Soil (i.e. fuel soaked soil, toxic or hazardous soaked soil)
  • Treated Wood (i.e. creosote pilings, railroad timbers, CCA treated wood, green pilings)
And any other debris deemed unacceptable by LDEQ or the Landfill

Arrangements can be made to transport the unacceptable debris at an additional cost.
