A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

Because we build to LEED Silver, responsible handling of demo waste is part of the scoring system, and therefore needs to be properly addressed to maintain the LEED standard. Our two main contractors over the last three years, Consigli and Rolland Chabot, recycle any materials that can be salvaged, both because of Bates policy and because of their internal incentives. The Bates Operations employees also remove usable materials prior to demolition, such as copper, furniture, appliances, and mechanical devices.
