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:

All construction contracts specify that they must recycle all applicable materials through a qualified construction and demolition recycling facility. The contractors handle all of the construction and demolition recycling and report the weights to VCU.

This is noted in the FMD Design & Construction Standards
18.3 Solid Waste Management
"Reuse and or recycle demolition debris by at least 80%; maximize reuse of existing on-site material whenever possible."
