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:

B. Procedures to be Used
a. The following materials will be separated and handled in the following manner:
i. Ferrous Metals
1. All ferrous metals such as metal stud framing, ductwork, electrical equipment, etc. will be separated and taken to Mervis Industries. Due to the anticipated minimal amount of this type of material, we will pile materials and load into a truck for delivery to the recycling center. At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.
ii. Non-Ferrous Metals
1. All non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum will be separated and taken to Goodman & Wolfe. Due to the anticipated minimal amount of this type of material, we will pile materials and load into a truck for delivery to the recycling center. At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.
iii. Untreated Lumber, Plywood, OSB, Particle Board, and Drywall
1. Due to limited amounts, if any, these types of materials will be placed in a dumpster for transport to C&D landfill.
iv. Cardboard, Paper & Beverage Containers
1. These materials will be separated and stockpiled on the jobsite and taken to ISU Recycling Center for processing. Estimated weight of materials will be documented.
v. Plumbing Fixtures, Doors, Electrical fixtures
1. All plumbing fixtures will be taken to Habitat for Humanity. Estimated weight of materials will be documented.
vi. Concrete and Masonry Materials
1. All material of this type appears to be contaminated due to the presence of paint. As a result, all of this material must be taken to a state permitted solid waste C&D landfill per IDEM Guidance Sheet 329 IAC 10-2-37. Given this IDEM requirement, this contaminated material is not eligible for recycling and therefore cannot be taken into account in the landfill diversion requirements as called for in the project specifications 011510. All concrete and masonry materials will be separated and put into a specific dumpster and taken to C&D landfill. . At time of delivery, the load will be weighed and tickets will be documented.
