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

Many diversion programs currently in place are not being tracked as part of the College's waste and recycling program. Weights for computers, furniture donations, some parts of scrap metal etc are not being recorded, as such, the diversion rate is artificially low.
