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:

Construction Management is responsible for removing all waste from construction projects. We receive a final cost for removal from the site, but it does not distinguish what is recycled or what goes to the landfill. We take that cost and divide it by 45 per ton tippage fee to estimate tonnage.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

The method to collect data was to pull the cost of waste disposal from Construction Management projects greater than or equal to $100,000.00. This information is typically available on the final invoice for projects. The final total weight of waste disposed of by the project would be the total cost divided by $45.00 per ton tippage fee.
