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:

The University of Missouri’s Sustainable Design Guidelines define rates of diversion for major construction projects. Template specifications, early estimates for project diversion rates, and tracking logs are utilized on major construction and demolition projects. Where possible, approved clean-fill sites for masonry rubble are utilized within the campus boundary or in close proximity to the project site, in order to minimize transportation distance.
