A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contribute to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

In order to meet LEED standards we recycle c+d waste. However, we had already been recycling this waste for years before we started building to LEED. Our Recycling and Solid Waste Department has been doing this for over seven years. We also collect metal and concrete from non-LEED campus construction and recycle.
