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:

Colby pursues LEED certification for all capital projects with appropriate scope. As part of the certification effort, the College targets exceeding a 75% construction waste diversion rate goal for each project. Additionally, the College passes sustainability goals along to smaller or limited scope projects that do not pursue LEED certification, but still generate construction waste.
