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:

New construction projects follow the Pomona College Green Building Standards and Sustainability Action Plan, which require a minimum 90% diversion rate for new construction and major remodeling projects. In 2013-2014, C&D waste diversion rate for the new Millikan and Studio Art Hall projects were 89% and 77%. Small construction redesign was a 95% diversion in 2013-2014.
