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:

Per the UNCG Facilities Design & Construction Department web site: "FDC incorporates sustainable strategies in new construction and renovation projects at UNCG. Some of these strategies include ... recycling and construction waste management plans." It is FDC policy to salvage and recycle demolition and construction waste as defined by LEED credit MR2 for all LEED-certified projects. FDC also emphasizes reuse of building materials when possible and development of comprehensive plans to divert construction and demolition waste from landfills.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

FY2017-18 provided by Ben Kunka, Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling.

This data is generated by UNCG Facilities Design and Construction, who at the conclusion of construction projects provides landfill and recycling tonnages based on tipping fee numbers, so they are true numbers rather than estimates.

This data, however, is not included in the OWRR annual diversion calculations and does not include information on minor renovation work.
