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:

The College has Best Practices designed as directives for Construction and Demolition Contractors working for Middlebury College as well as for the staff of the college. These Best Practices ensure that hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated from demolition and construction of buildings on the Middlebury College Campus are managed to reflect the commitments made by the Middlebury College Board of Trustees. These Best Practices can be found here: http://www.middlebury.edu/sustainability/commitment/planning/construction

This data is from the construction of the Middlebury College Field House, Lobby Addition, and Squash Court (April 2013 to present).

Middlebury's Bubble was taken down as part of this construction project and rebuilt at Castleton State College 30 miles south of Middlebury rather than deposited in a landfill. See more at: http://www.middlebury.edu/sustainability/news-events/news/2013/node/454428
