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:

Richland completed one major construction project during the performance year: Sabine Hall. The building was designed and built to LEED Platinum standards, which compelled the builder to recycle construction and demolition waste from the project. The builder recycled over 88% of materials from this project.

Richland also completed a major renovation during 2009-10. Richland Facilities Services Personnel collected and recycled 21.2 tons of demolition material from this renovation, including duct work, metal studs, carpet, and wood. The remainder of waste from this project had to be disposed of as hazardous material.
