Local Waste Diversion Indicator
This indicator tracks trends in the implementation rate of compost programs by local governments on a statewide basis. The chart below was constructed using data from CalRecycle's Planning Annual Report Information System (now known as the Diversion Program System). The database summarized the information contained in local jurisdictions' source reduction and recycling elements (SRRE) on a statewide basis. The compost program categories included in the graph were selected from the information available in the database.
