English term or phrase:divert 57% away
The context is waste treatment. What's to divert way? And divert away 57% of what?
They then invented the ‘landfill’. But these lasted about as long as the pots and pans
put out when the roof is leaking. Now they are being capped and states are mandating
haulers divert 57% away, increasing to 75%, until finally, in 2020, 100% - no landfills.
Further along the ‘wake-up progression’ came recycling and restraint.
