Annual California Solid Waste Disposal
Tonnages are subject to change due to revisions. The DRS reports are based on information reported by permitted facility operators and compiled by county/regional agency disposal reporting coordinators. Exported includes waste sent by California to other states, other countries or to tribal and indian lands. Total Imported is the total amount of waste imported into California landfills from tribal and indian lands, another state or another country and includes imported transformation waste.
*Landfilled does not include disposal related uses including ADC, AIC or other beneficial reuse.
ADC means CalRecycle-approved alternative daily cover materials other than soil used as a temporary overlay on an exposed landfill face. Note: The reported ADC tonnage may include some amounts used for other beneficial uses, due to variability in local reporting systems.
Total Disposal is the total amount of waste disposed at a landfill (does not include ADC, AIC, other beneficial reuse or transformation) and the total amount of waste exported out of state to landfills or transformation facilities.
Disposal Reporting System (DRS) web reports are based upon information reported by permitted facility operators and compiled by County/Regional Agency disposal reporting coordinators. Only finalized data are shown in these reports.
