Reported tonnage is from the most recent year (FY15-16). This total for "demolition tonnage landfilled" is greater due to extensive demolition of structures to prepare for two new campus buildings.
FY14-15 (a more typical year):
Recycled demo materials=52 tons
Landfilled demo materials=1080 tons
Diverted from landfill= 5%
