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

WWU diverts materials from the landfill and incinerator by recycling, composting, reusing, donating, and re-selling. These items include furniture and office supplies which unfortunately are not weighed, so the weight numbers for this credit will be significantly under-represented.
