Diversion Chart

The Commission strives to be a leader is construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) waste recycling. Some materials diverted from landfill disposal are shipped for recycling. Other materials are processed on our site to produce useful products for resale. We have achieved as much as 77% diversion from landfill in the past but success has waned in recent years as indicated by the size of the blue column relative to the brown column in the chart below. We are now working to improve recycling opportunities at the landfill and cooperating with municipalities and industry partners to put practices in place throughout the CRD materials chain of custody. These resource recovery efforts will help ensure responsible use of the landfill space and extend the lifespan of the Francis Cooke Landfill.
