Institution diverts non-hazardous construction and demolition waste from the landfill and/or incinerator. 

Soil and organic debris from excavating or clearing the site do not count for this credit. 


This credit applies to all institutions that have conducted a major construction and/or demolition project in the past three years. 


Institutions earn the maximum 1 point for this credit by diverting all of their non-hazardous construction and demolition waste from the landfill or incinerator. Incremental points are available based on the percentage of waste that is diverted. For example, an institution that diverts 50 percent of its construction and demolition waste would earn 0.5 points (half of the points available for this credit).
