Institution diverts non-hazardous construction and demolition waste from the landfill and/or incinerator. 

Soil and organic debris from excavating or clearing the site do not count for this credit.  


This credit applies to all institutions that have conducted a major construction, renovation and/or demolition project in the three years prior to the anticipated date of submission. 


Institutions earn the maximum of 1 point available for this credit by diverting all of their non-hazardous construction and demolition waste from the landfill or incinerator in a one-year period. Incremental points are awarded based on the percentage of waste that is recovered. For example, an institution that diverts 50 percent of its construction and demolition waste would earn 0.5 points (half of the points available for this credit). 

See scoring table and example in the STARS Technical Manual.
