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:

UW Recycling has several permanent Construction & Demolition (C&D) recycling containers (10- and 20-yard roll of containers) in their Corp Yard 2 location that encourage the proper disposal of the following materials: C&D, Concrete, Clean Wood and Scrap Metal. The Corp Yard 1 location has permanent containers on-site to collect carpet and C&D. Other academic or facilities services buildings have permanent containers on site to collect C&D and scrap metal. Temporary containers are also called in for specific jobs. All containers are well labeled and the areas are signed to encourage proper use and to minimize contamination. The number of projects producing demolition recycling and waste varies greatly by year so numbers vary year by year.
