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 new construction and major renovation projects on campus either pursue LEED or Living Building Challenge certification. Both programs have guidelines that encourage or require 50-100% of construction and demolition waste be recycled or salvaged. Diversion is looked at through a project by project basis. Certain sustainability goals like LEED require diversion or reclamation. Williams often saves roof slate or wood framing and donates any old furniture. Concrete is also often times crushed and used for road bedding.
