Estimate Your Facility's Monthly Waste Diversion Rate
In this section, report on the amount of material your facility generates to estimate your facility's monthly waste diversion rate. Much of the information needed to complete the form may be found on your service provider invoices. If your service provider invoices for a particular material list the number of tons collected per month, please enter that number into the "Tons Collected per Month" column in the matrix below.
If you cannot obtain this information from your service provider invoices, use the Building Waste Generation Calculator Tool to estimate the number of tons of each material your facility generates using information about your current levels of collection service.
(NOTE: "Medical Waste" and "Edible, Unopened Packaged Food" are not included in the calculator tool. It is likely that your service provider or donation entity will provide weights for these materials, which you can enter directly into the matrix below.)
If you know the number of pounds of a certain material generated, type that number into the "Type Number of Pounds Here" field below to convert into tons before filling out the matrix.
