Construction & Demolition Waste Diversion (2.2)

Credit Language

OP 19: Construction & Demolition Waste Diversion – version 2.2

Example Responses

  • American University – A copy of the institution’s zero waste policy is linked. 
  • Portland State University – Includes design standards that support the institution’s initiative to minimize construction waste.
  • Nova Scotia Community College – Spreadsheet attached that includes information on whether materials of a certain type were reused, recycled, or disposed of.

Common Issues Identified During Review

  • Numeric outlier: A response of zero tons of construction and demolition materials landfilled or incinerated (or 100% under Percentage of construction and demolition materials diverted…) is unlikely, and is probably provided when the institution does not know the exact amount. If exact amount cannot be determined and a conservative estimate is not available, the credit should be updated to Not Pursuing.
