In the last 20 years, the waste diversion rate has improved from well below 50% to an estimated 63% in 2016. This is far better than the national average and much of the recent improvements have come from the ban on the disposal of organics and clean wood. Future improvements will focus on organics and construction and demolition wastes. 

2017 data for this indicator will not be available until October, 2018.
