Amount of construction and demolition materials recycled, donated, or otherwise recovered :
325.28 Tons

Amount of construction and demolition materials landfilled or incinerated :
6.64 Tons

A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contribute to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

PLU maintains a 95% or above waste diversion rate in construction because of their contractors have moved to purchasing only what is necessary (when, in the past, they have purchased "just-in-case" materials). Most of the waste is concrete and other high demand materials, which can be sold directly back to the contractors and resold or reused.
