Meet Trevor and Robert
Dumpsters.com’s Trevor Ditch and Robert Di Pasquale III are now certified LEED Green Associates. With their new accreditations, Ditch and Di Pasquale can leverage expert jobsite sustainability solutions — no matter the type, size or scope of the project — including ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) principles.
Ditch has been with the company for over seven years and currently serves in the role of account executive sales leader. His clients include companies that specialize in renewable energy production on the national level, along with large construction companies with multiple jobsites running simultaneously.
Di Pasquale, currently an account executive, has been with Dumpsters.com for more than five years. Examples of his clients include a top 10 construction company and a nationwide commercial solar services company. Both partners regularly require waste diversion for projects of all sizes.
What Is the LEED Green Associate Certification?
LEED Green Associate Certification is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. It is given to individuals who complete a required examination on green building practices and LEED site support with a score of 85% or higher. Beginning in 2009, all LEED-accredited professionals must renew their titles every two years. This applies to LEED Green Associates, LEED AP professionals and LEED Fellows.
How We Became Certified
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) outlines the processes for creating efficient, cost-saving and sustainable buildings. Becoming certified as a LEED Green Associate takes months of preparation for the two-hour, 100-question final exam on material sourcing, waste diversion and construction practices.
Ditch and Di Pasquale took the test to provide our partners with up-to-date green practices for jobsite sustainability. For six months, the two studied from provided books and other online resources before taking a final examination at a testing facility in Pennsylvania. Specific to our partners’ needs, Ditch and Di Pasquale learned how to better assess material life cycles and employ current recycling and waste diversion practices.
"A big part of having the LEED certification on our side is we're on the forefront of the trends in our industry when it comes to commercial construction and even building maintenance."
