What is a Program Composition?

Program composition is the makeup of the streams within your recycling & waste collection program.

For example, the program composition of the Demo Organization in your available organizations is broken down into four streams, as follows:

  • 21.9% Organics
  • 10.4% Paper
  • 39.7% Waste
  • 28.1% Cans & Bottles

The makeup of your program’s composition is a key indicator of the overall success of your collection program. The goal of your program should be to reduce the percentage of your Waste stream as much as possible. By reducing the percentage of your Waste stream from your program’s overall composition, you’ll inevitably increase your diversion rate.
