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:
C&D can be a significant portion of the university’s waste stream, however, it’s overall contribution fluctuates from year to year depending on the scale of projects. The California State University Administration Manual (SUAM) General Conditions Section 01151 states that regardless of delivery method (Major Cap, Minor Cap, JOC, etc.) a minimum 50% diversion rate (by weight) is required. This Section also states that Contractors must submit a Waste and Recycling Plan, which at a minimum should identify and estimate types and amounts of waste, job site source separation plans, landfill options and alternatives to disposal (i.e., facilities accepting salvaged or recycled materials), and tonnage calculations demonstrating Contractor will meet or exceed 50% diversion rate requirement. This Waste and Recycling Plan must be approved by the Construction Administrator before work can commence. Upon conclusion of the project the Contractor must also submit a Reuse, Recycling, and Disposal Report, including disposal receipts indicating weights of materials, landfilled or otherwise diverted. Furthermore, the University can assess non-conformance penalties to the JOC contractor, via deductive change order, for violating Recycling & Refuse Disposal Requirements: $100 per incident per day.
