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:

Third party contractors that do most of the construction and demolition on campus are strongly encouraged to divert whatever material they can. This effort was recently formalized in the new Guidelines for Business Partners in 2014.


The performance year is FY 2013. The percentage diverted is an approximation estimated by Wright Construction, the company that completed the renovation of the Bentley House. The Bentley House was the only major project on campus in FY 2013.
