Solid Waste Diversion Rate (Council Key Result Indicator #14)

Measure Description/Definition

The key to assuring a sustainable environment for future generations is an efficient and responsible means for diverting waste from landfill disposal through waste reductions and reuse education efforts, drop-off and curbside collection of recyclables, yard waste composting operations and Household Hazardous Waste management, including e-waste. This measures the rate of waste that the City is able to divert from going into landfills.



Target Determination

Exceed the EPA National diversion rate of 34.5%.



Analysis

Through Q2-20, the City's diversion rate was 35.35%. This is 4.65% above the City's target, but 0.85% above the EPA's national diversion rate. Much of the drop from the average can be attributed to increased residential waste tonnage as well as the impact so some Solid Waste services due to COVID-19.
