This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

IUPUI contractors recently added scales to their trucks for waste collection. Before this year waste was not accurately weighed, therefore no 2005 baseline nor trend can be established. Going forward, the campus will be tracking this information.

For 2013, weights for recycling are as follows:

Month Recycle Tonnage Disposal Tonnage Total Monthly Tonnage Monthly Recycle Percentage
January 35.28 300.50 335.78 10.51%
February 38.66 309.42 348.08 11.11%
March 38.94 349.74 388.68 10.02%
April 39.26 392.20 431.46 9.10%
