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:

In 2008, a section on ''Construction/Demolition Waste management and Disposal'' that asked for a minimum of 75% of diversion from landfills was added to the ''McGill construction standards'' document. In November 2010, a presentation of this part of the standards was done to the Project manager asking them to make sure these standards be respected from then on. In addition, a table to fill-in to report on this is accessible on our website.
The numbers above are the quantities on the projects reported only. This is accordance to McGill's Green Building Standards that requires diversion of 75% of construction materials from landfills, as part of LEED certification.
