Waste Characterization Business Groups Listing

The following list contains definitions of the Business Groups used in recent CalRecycle waste characterization studies. Since there are many kinds of businesses, we used federal NAICS codes to group them, putting businesses with similar waste streams together, focusing on groups with large employment in California, and separating business types that generate large amounts of organics. The Not Elsewhere Classified group is a "catch all" groups of less similar businesses. Select a Details button to view the list and definitions of the NAICS codes in that group.
