Performance year for this credit is FY19.

Construction projects are required by contract to use construction and demolition (C&D) recycling independent of any effort towards a ranking in a rating system. The city of Seattle also requires recycling of C&D material: http://www.seattle.gov/Util/Engineering/Consulting_Resources/CDWasteManagement/RecyclingRequirements/index.htm

LEED certified building projects are tracked to increase diversion rates. Most building projects are done by vendors. We have meetings with contractors concerning diversion rates.

Waste collected from all remodeling or light C&D work conducted by Facilities staff is sorted at a construction debris recycling facility with an average 70% diversion rate.
