FYI remember EPA figures do not count industrial wastes, sludges, C&D, etc
that may go into MSW landfills anyway. When states give us their recycling
rates, many seem to count all of the above, but they include it in their
generation figures as well. Thus, I am not sure we have a good count on
pounds per day. Do you count commercial? if not then EPA figures would be
high. If you count what states count then figures would be too low!!
We saw one estimate of MSW at about 500 million tons.
