A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:

Drew does not keep track of materials donated. However, the Theology School and Earth House have a "free table" to exchange items amongst students, faculty, staff. The Fashion Club hosts a clothing swap at the end of each semester and they donate items left to local charities. The Theology School also does not provide bottled beverages at catered events and uses only compostable plates, cups, forks, knives, and spoons.
