To quantify the percentage by weight of waste material that is reduced, reused, recycled or composted as compared to the total volume of waste generated.
Track type and weight of all non-hazardous, solid materials by month for a minimum of 12 months. If estimates are used, provide the methodology and/or source references used to make calculations. Calculate annual average diversion by dividing the weight of materials diverted by the total weight of materials generated.
Create a system to gather weights on all materials generated by using a scale or collecting weight tickets from the recipient of the materials. Develop a tool or template to track materials by type and weight each month. The tool should calculate total tons generated, materials sent to landfill, incineration (WTE), or the environment; materials reduced; materials reused; and materials recycled or composted. If actual weights are not available for certain material types or hauling methods, volume to weight averages can be used.
- 12 months of ongoing tracking data for all waste streams. Data must be displayed by commodity and waste, be broken down by month, and calculate annual average diversion rate. Diversion rate must meet the annual average thresholds described in the credit number. Applicant must identify if estimates are used and must provide the methodology and/or source references used to make calculations.
- Documentation that verifies values listed in tracking sheets for at least one month, including invoices that document weight, weight tickets, internal documentation, or any report from service provider (if available). If actual weights are not available, the documented process must quantify how full front loader bins are.
