A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contribute to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

California as well as the City of San Rafael have strict regulation regarding construction and demolition waste. According to San Rafael Green Building Requirements - ordinance #1879 & 1881 - pg 11 - "at least 50% of all construction and demolition debris generated by the project will be diverted." However, Dominican made a greater effort and diverted 78.2% of its construction and demolition waste in the year of 2010.
