Using Waste Study Data
Data from the 2014 studies has been combined with local data to build a tool that estimates waste stream data for California jurisdictions. Use it to look at what might be expected in disposal, recycling, and organics streams from businesses in a jurisdiction, as well as estimated disposal amounts for the residential sector.
