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:

General trades contractors for all large construction projects are required to provide recycling and refuse data for waste generated by on-site construction projects. Most waste is co-mingled on-site and then sent to a sorting facility where recyclables are diverted. Additionally Denison makes an effort to recycle high value metals separately from the co-mingled waste stream in order to maximize returns and off-set recycling costs. Small construction projects utilize Denison's recycling and waste containers, which are sorted on-site (this data is not reflected in the information provided above).
