Residential Waste Stream by Material Type
This page displays estimated residential disposed waste composition by material type and stream for the specified California jurisdiction(s). Single family tons and multifamily tons add to give total residential tons. Percents show the proportion each material contributes to each stream, and they add down the columns to give 100%. Single family composition percents are based on regional data. Commercial composition is available by Business Group and Material Type.
Residential estimates are based on statewide average data for multi-family and regional average data for single-family, not on sampling at residences in any individual jurisdiction.
