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:
1. Planning derives its program policies regarding waste diversion from the CSU Chancellor's Office Executive Order (EO) 987 states that sustainable practices, materials, and other considerations be made in the design, construction, and operation of buildings and other structures on CSU campuses. While this EO primarily indicates consideration of measures to conserve water and energy, it also expressly indicates that materials and equipment with long life cycles should be used as well as sustainable building products. 2. Additionally, Planning includes in its general packets for campus builds verbiage entitled "Construction and Demolition Materials Recycling Requirements". This includes, but is not limited to the following: --The requirements of waste diversion as outlined by California Assembly Bill 75 include a mandatory 65% reduction of source materials sent to California landfills. --A contractor must include in a proposal a "Contractor's Construction Waste and Recycling Plan" before commencement of work. --A contractor must complete and submit quantitative reports for construction waste materials as a condition of "the approval of the third progress payment." 3. Planning has committed to obtain an equivalent of LEED Gold status or higher for all future projects thus ensuring all previous department project conditions for LEED projects are met in addition to all applicable LEED Gold options chosen for the projects in question.
