Metal scrap reclaimed and sold. Recoverable windows, doors, etc. given away or sold through annual yard sale. Specific weights are estimated per the campus standard:

Additional documentation to support the submission:

We have changed how we manage our C&D waste. We now require the contractors to remove all waste. We give them our standards which includes a section mandating all contractors to divert 50% of waste from the landfill. The numbers reported above are not actual weights. They represent the minimum diversion rate that we require from all contractors.
