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:

As a policy, Princeton recycles at least 95% of its construction and demolition materials.


The numbers above were partially extrapolated from FY2014 data due to a transition in Princeton's construction material record-keeping process. During this time, Princeton continued to recycle at least 95% of its construction and demolition materials per University policy.
