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:

The FGCU AB-8 College of Health Professions Building is being built with a goal of at
least Silver Certified building. As such, there are general requirements and procedures for compliance with certain U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Prerequisites and
credits needed for the project to obtain LEED Silver Certification.

The Waste Management Plan is detailed to assist the project team in taking the necessary steps to fulfilling the requirements for these prerequisites, in order to divert all scraps and waste from landfills and back into the production stream for recycling into usable products. The Waste Management Plan is designed to make sure that the subcontractors working on the construction of the AB-8 building does not arbitrarily dispose of chemicals and garbage in such a way and to minimize our recycling potential or to adversely affect the environment during the construction of this building. During the construction period there will be various containers on site specifically for concrete, paper/cardboard, plastic, metal, wood and un-recyclables. Subcontractors will be required to separate their waste into the appropriate container as required per their contract. There will be no food or beverage allowed inside the building, with the exception of water. All eating and drinking will be confined to a Manhattan Kraft designated area outside of the building. The details of the Waste Management Plans will be strictly adhered to during the construction of the building. It is our guidelines to make sure that every person working on the project is aware of the necessary precautions needed to be taken while performing the scope of their work, during the construction period.

This data is from 2011-2012 and includes the waste from Marieb Hall's construction.

FGCU has committed to certify all future building construction LEED Silver or higher, so we will continue to measure these materials and collect this data.
