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:

Seneca incorporates into its RFP's to reduce waste. It dictates that contractors are responsible for the removal and diversion of construction and demolition (C&D) materials from landfill. Recent construction projects across all Seneca campuses are designed to meet LEED Gold green building standards, and as such aim to achieve high levels of C&D waste diversion; Magna Hall at King Campus, and the CITE Building at Newnham Campus both achieved LEED Gold certification.
