Waste Diversion by Sector and Stream

Information on total annual waste diversion, broken down by stream (landfill, recycling, organics, reuse) and sector (single family home, multifamily home, commercial).

Note: the total waste diversion rate can vary significantly year to year due to major construction projects and unpredictable events such as natural disasters.
