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:

As a part of a 2022 demolition of a temporary office building on campus, IC worked carefully to assess opportunities to reuse building materials such as office doors, tires, and furniture. Demolished materials were then sorted and materials that could be recycled - including metal and clean fill. Our campus doesn't conduct much demolition, but when it does it works according to campus policy to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill.
