Why is this measure important?

Waste diversion reduces the amount of waste going to landfills so that landfills have a longer life-span. In addition, customers have reduced costs from landfill/transfer station fees when waste minimization efforts are implemented.    

Where does the data come from?

Excel spreadsheet maintained by EMTS supervisor; monthly volumes of brush; recycle and MSW

How is the measure calculated?

Recycle tons plus brush tons divided by total waste tons (recycle + MSW + brush) x 100 = waste diversion rate
