The purpose of the Resource Conservation Program (RCP) is to promote and manage the use of recycled and solid waste products and materials throughout the Statewide system of transportation construction and maintenance projects as required by
NC G.S.§ 136‐28.8(g) and
G.S.§ 130A‐309.14(3). The NC General Assembly requires that an annual report be prepared by every department and submitted to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) by October 1st of each year. In addition to the annual report, on behalf of the department, the Materials and Tests (M&T) Unit is required to review bid procedures and processes every year to encourage the purchase and use of recycled materials. NCDOT 2018 General Specification
104‐13 requires that all contractors submit a report of the recycled materials used on every NCDOT project for which they contract with NCDOT for by July 1st of every year.
The Resource Conservation Program is also responsible for tracking the use of Coal Combustion Products (CCP) that are used by the department as required by § 130A‐309.219. If you are currently planning on using Coal Combustion Products on an NCDOT project, then please consult the CCP Process Guidelines and the Special Provision list in the Links section on this page.
