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:

George Mason University (Mason) has committed to designing and constructing buildings that meet, at the minimum, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards and the Virginia Energy Conservation and Environmental Standards. Within LEED, there are credits associated with construction and demolition waste diversion which the university tracks. While Mason has its buildings built to LEED Silver standards and the Virginia Energy Conservation and Environmental Standards, Mason has limited budget to complete the LEED certification process for each new building. The numbers listed above are for 2013 projects. The construction and demolition waste for the other projects are the responsibility of the contractors and responsibly disposed of but not specifically tracked.
