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:

Design Guidelines for all new construction and major renovations include a minimum goal of 80% diversion whether seeking LEED certification or not. For all projects where the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) contracts are used, there is wording in the General Conditions of the contract, section 13.21, that describes what the CMAR is to do for recycling construction waste. For New Construction projects where LEED certification is being sought the recycle program is managed by the CMAR for LEED credits. ASU’s sustainability program and Policies and Procedures are referenced in Section 13.22 and 13.23 respectively.
