Current Diversion Rate

Our current diversion rate is measurement of how much waste we are diverting from the landfill to be recycled. In 2023 the entire college produced 983,360 pounds of trash and we recycled 658,911 pounds of materials. This made for a 40% diversion rate.


While this is a respectable diversion rate in comparison with other states, counties, cities and institutions of higher education, we believe there is a lot of room for improvement. Everyone’s actions matter……and add up. Please do your part and deposit recyclable items in the nearest recycle bin or call the recycling department, 801-957-4242, if you have any questions or need help depositing items your trying to get rid of. Thank you for your help and support!
