A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:
Denison operates a community recycling center that collects not only campus generated materials for recycling, but also community generated materials. Denison conducts annual Move-In and Move-Out events to divert materials from the waste stream towards recycling and reuse. The Move-Out event collects a variety of reusable items that are donated to local charitable organizations. Each year, Denison holds a surplus sale where employees can purchase unneeded and unwanted items from the university. Denison also has a food composting program whereby dining hall food waste is composted at an on-site facility and then used as fertilizer for athletic fields and the campus community garden.
