A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:

George Mason University (Mason) has several programs that divert waste, primarily its recycling program; Patriot Pack Out, its residential halls move-out program; and its surplus program. Mason was not able to include its surplus program at this time since transactions are tracked in dollars and not in weight. Additionally, all data for this category are for the 2010 calendar year since 2011 data was not yet available at the time of submission.
