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:

Evergreen's single construction project in 09-10 was a major renovation of the College Activities Building (CAB) designed to meet LEED Gold certification standards. A high rate of diversion of construction/demolition waste was a specific goal.

College construction/renovation (over 5,000 square feet) is required by state law to achieve a minimum of LEED Silver certification. The CAB project was supported by a student vote and fee to take it to LEED Gold.
