Materials recycled, composted, reused, donated, re-sold, or otherwise diverted :
288 Tons

Materials disposed in a solid waste landfill or incinerator :
864 Tons

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

Currently RMCAD has co-mingled recycling, but the program has not been properly communicated. Within the last few weeks a student group has taken on the task of improving the recycling program and improving communications to increase recycling. Additionally, a new composting program has begun on campus and it has not been operating long enough to show an impact in these figures.
