Environmental Science and Biology
Materials recycled, composted, reused, donated, re-sold, or otherwise diverted :
Materials disposed in a solid waste landfill or incinerator :
A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:
Whenever there is a complete renovation of buildings there is a conscious effort made to assure any contents are either reused, recycled or disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner. Mattress recycling will be part of next years plan, and many chemical products from a chemistry building renovation have been stored for reuse after the renovation is completed. All major renovations or new construction require a minimum of LEED Silver compliance which includes waste diversion and recycling.
