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:

Belmont University’s goal is to design high performing and sustainable buildings. As part of this goal, a construction waste management plan is implemented on major construction projects. This management plan identifies the likely recyclable construction materials on a project, and the locations and vendors where those recyclables will be handled. Typically, comingled dumpsters are used, and materials are sorted off-site and subsequently hauled to the appropriate recycler location. This process greatly reduces the amount of waste input into our regional landfills
