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:

NC State University requires a minimum of 75% of construction and demolition waste to be diverted from the landfill through reuse or recycling. Waste Reduction and Recycling offers rental services of dumpsters and rolloffs to assist with on-site source separation, and small projects performed by NC State may use the on-campus Dearstyne Convenience Site for all construction and demolition waste and recycling. For items that can't be reused in the current or future projects, the University Surplus Property Services team can assist in collecting and distributing those items through internal and public sales.
