[greenyes] Breakdown of wastestream for typical US household


Does anyone out there know of waste sorts that have been done that have the
breakdown of the wastestream for a "typical" (whatever that is) US family of
four, let's say? I am interested in what ends up at the curb, in the trash
can and in the recycling bin. The more specific the better, i.e., glass,
plastic broken down by #1, #2 and other, aluminum cans, steel cans, ONP,
other paper.

Thanks,

Pat
