Statistics

We work hard to get accurate statistics for how much material is divert from the landfill at each event. The following numbers include all events we have serviced since 2011.

We use hanging scales, recycling center scales, and EPA volume estimates (for hard-to-weigh materials) to get accurate weights of diverted recycling and compost.

Reuse diversion numbers come from estimates based on how much material wasn’t created thanks to reusable serviceware. It also encompasses the weight of rescued textiles and other goods rescued from festival grounds after events.

CO2 estimates

When we recycle, compost, and reuse items we’re not only keeping material out of the landfill, but we’re also keeping greenhouses gasses out of the atmosphere.

By recycling, composting, and reusing items we are able to decrease the overall amount of greenhouses gasses that would be emitted into the atmosphere if those same materials were sent to the landfill.

We measure these hypothetical greenhouse gasses as Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent. The EPA’s WARM model is that basis for these estimations.

Volume Estimates

Using weights we are able to estimate the total volume of material diverted from the landfill.

Since 2011 we’ve recycle about 2434 square yards of material. That’s about 81 dumpers (30-yard dumpster) of material diverted from the landfill.

Since 2011 we’ve composted about 489 square yards of heavy food and compostable serviceware. That’s about 16 dumpers (30-yard dumpster) of waste diverted from the landfill.
