Recycled tonnage is estimated based on container size and dump frequency. Somerset County collects our recyclables and does not report tonnage. Waste numbers for performance year are for calendar year 2010. Waste numbers for baseline year were calculated based on trend data from 2009-2011. 2009 waste numbers were added to performance year recycling and composting numbers to estimate baseline numbers.

See http://www.raritanval.edu/community/forum/sustain/recycling.html for more information about RVCC's recycling programs.
