The College is currently renovating Marshall Hall (targeted LEED Gold BD+C). This project began in 2020. The file below shows the cumulative trash and recycling tonnages for the project. The College also replaced its garage fuel dispenser. Recycling tonnage can be seen in the attached document. The College does not have C&D trash/recycling data for projects beyond these over the last three years.

The Facilities Department is in the process of revising its term contract to require diversion tracking in all future projects at the College, regardless of size.
