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:

With other new buildings cropping up on campus, UAA Facilities & Campus Services chose to renovate the Science Building instead—but not without an environmental strategy in place first. Most notable is the fact that approximately 80 percent of the demolition material—coming to 106 tons—was recycled instead of sent to the landfill—an outcome that was made possible by a close partnership between UAA’s Department of Sustainability and UAA Facilities & Campus Services.
