Commercial Diversion Calculator

FIND OUT HOW MUCH WASTE YOU DIVERT FROM THE LANDFILL.

The EDCO diversion calculator is based on average weights for trash, recycling and green waste. Trash weighs considerably more than recycling and green waste. To achieve 50% diversion you need to place out about 2.5 times more recycling and or green waste than you do trash.

Your weekly diversion rate represents what we collect from your business each week. If you divert any other items from the landfill than your diversion will be higher. For instance if you compost or donate items to goodwill it will not be reflected in your weekly diversion rate shown.

  1. Pick the size of your dumpsters.
  2. Pick the quantity.
  3. How many pick-ups per week?
  4. How full are they every pick up?
