Landfill diversion rate estimates the percentage of total solid, non-hazardous waste prevented from going to landfill due to reuse, refurbishment or recycling. It is calculated by dividing the total weight of all materials recycled by the total weight of all incoming end-of-life material, for the period shown. It does not include materials that may have been disposed or recycled by individual facilities without notifying the Materials Management Business Unit.

The diversion rate increased substantailly in fiscal 2011 compared to past year as a result of a large increase in the annual amount of scrap metal recycled compared to past years.
