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:

Colgate specifies in all general and subcontractor contracts that renovation and building debris must be removed and properly recycled or disposed of in accordance with all federal and New York State laws. Furthermore, all new buildings and major renovations adhere to at least LEED Silver standards. We strive to recycle at minimum 50 percent of all construction debris.

We diverted 432.5 tons of waste out of a total construction waste of 535.4 tons.

Lathrop Hall Renovation:
The project produced 695.66 tons of waste of which 535.34 tons were recycled or otherwise diverted from the landfill.
