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:

For all new construction and major renovation projects, the project team must develop a waste management plan to comply with LEED requirements and identify how they will manage the C&D waste stream. Waste management tracking reports will be provided to UF concurrently with each application for payment. The UF non-technical specifications indicate that projects are to recycle and/or salvage at least 75% of construction, demolition, and land-clearing waste. Waste numbers are reported monthly.
