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:

The State of New York Construction Fund and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York require all major renovations and new to comply with the minimum standard of LEED Silver.The LEED program requires at least 50% of construction waste to be diverted from the waste stream.
The College at Brockport has elected to certify the most recently completed renovation at Thompson Hall to a LEED Gold level. The renovations of McVicar which started in May 2010 will also be certified to a minimum LEED Silver level. The new construction for SERC project which started construction in May 2010 will also be LEED Silver." All other new major construction must meet the minimum LEED standards.

We looked at the college's major construction and demolitions in progress from 1 July 2009 to 30 June 2010. Only major projects with data available are included. There is not data available for the Tower fine arts building renovation.
