Materials disposed in a solid waste landfill or incinerator :
A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:
1296.0 tons recycled
(figure based on a fall audit over one week - i.e. this number is an estimate because the University contracts with the City and therefore cannot get regularly reported weights)
45 tons composted material -
15.85 tons (32,000 lbs) donated during Spring move-out. This includes, clothes, re-usable materials, and food.
350 Tons Estimated Campus Surplus Materials diverted from the landfill (very conservative estimate)
