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

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

A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:
This data is for 2011 for all Valencia College campuses. C& D waste is kept separate and in large part recycled. Thus 114 tons of C& D was subtracted from the 909.2 tons of waste and added to the 173.39 tons recycled. We actually haven't done any gutting that produced large amounts of demolition waste but do have construction waste with our new buildings. Our recycling program is described in OP-17.
