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:

Per the UNCG Facilities Design & Construction Department web site: "FDC incorporates sustainable strategies in new construction and renovation projects at UNCG. Some of these strategies include ... recycling and construction waste management plans." It is FDC policy to salvage and recycle demolition and construction waste as defined by LEED credit MR2 for all LEED-certified projects. FDC also emphasizes reuse of building materials when possible and development of comprehensive plans to divert construction and demolition waste from landfills.
