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:

Hagestad Active Learning Classroom 12C3F-02 - Recycled 64 cubic yards of concrete (about 128 tons) (100% of total generated) and 18.6 tons construction waste (74.6% of total generated).

Mann Valley Generator Installation 12E1S - Recycled 0.5 ton asphalt, 0.025 ton metal, 0.01 ton cardboard.

Hathorn Hall Elevator Remodel 12H4I - Recycled 5 tons concrete block.

Library Partial Roof Replacement 13D3K - Recycled 0.9 ton membrane and 0.6 ton insulation.

Fire Alarm Upgrades 10K1S - Recycled 1.3 tons electronics, conduit and wire and 12 cubic yards of cardboard (about 0.6 tons).

Greenhouse Steam Line Replacement 12L3O – Recycled 16 cubic yards asphalt (about 21.6 tons), 18 cubic yards concrete (about 36 tons).


Numbers shared above are respective to the 2013 reporting year. The campus works diligently to recycle as much construction waste as possible on any given project. For example, during the deconstruction of the Ames Lab School which was razed to make room for the new University Center in 2004, nearly 90% of the material was recycled.

When the newest Residence Hall was built and opened in the Fall of 2012, over 85% of construction debris was recycled during the construction process.
