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:
OSU requires all new construction and major renovation projects meet the equivalent of U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver equivalent standard. A mandatory component of LEED certification is for construction contractors to “provide an accessible area which serves an entire building and is dedicated to separation, collection, and storage of materials for recycling” and to create a construction waste management plan, with targets for recycled and reclaimed materials. To receive full points in the Construction Waste Management section of LEED, a waste management plan must be developed to quantify material diverted away from the landfill.
