Re: [greenyes] Commercial Waste Generation Rates


If you go to http://www.nyc.gov/html/dos/pdf/pubnrpts/cwms-ces/v2-cwgp.pdf

you will find a commercial waste generation study performed for the NYC Department of Sanitation, which uses an number of methods for estimating the volume of commercial waste.

Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone could refer me to good sources for the following:

a) Standards for number of employees based on known square footage of commercial space
b) Standards for waste generation rates for commercial uses (e.g., pounds generated per square foot of retail, warehouse, grocery, etc.)

The only standards I've been able to locate are from these web sites:

http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/WasteChar/WasteGenRates/Commercial.htm

Other sources are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
