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:

Oberlin College's Board of Trustees's green building policy lead Oberlin to purse increased construction and demolition waste diversion. The Environmental Policy commits the college to strive to salvage, store, and reuse as much construction waste as possible. Counters in the new Alumni Association office are recycled bathroom stalls and the reconstructed Adam Joseph Lewis Center wetlands features limestone excavated from the renovation of Asia House. Oberlin partners with local construction and demolition waste experts to maximize diversion.
