577.61 Metric tons

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:
Facilities Management is striving to reduce the amount of demolition debris going to local landfills; by diverting viable demolition materials to local recycling facilities. Prior to demolition of University owned facilities, we are working with our contractors to inventory the existing materials in the facility and determine which demolition debris are viable candidates for recycling. The contractor will then segregate these materials during demolition and transport them to the proper recycling facility using a “shipping slip”. The quantity of waste being recycled is documented on each “shipping slip”. At the end of the project, this documentation is provided to UT Arlington and we record the overall debris diversion percentage for that particular project.
