[GreenYes] Re: Waste Composition Study


The Pennsylvania waste composition study (at link provided by Mike Giuranna) was very comprehensive, taking in all seasons and also variations among rural, urban, and suburban areas. It was done by RW Beck, if I remember correctly.

<< Apologies for cross postings.

We are considering conducting a waste composition study at our publicly
owned landfills ( MSW - 275k tons/year & C & D - 110 ktons/year). I'm
interested in knowing about other public organizations (counties,
cities, towns, villages, waste districts, etc.) that have recently -
within the past 3 years - conducted a solid waste composition study at
their publicly owned landfill. Specifically, I would like to know what
organization you used/hired to conduct the study, the generator groups
you identified for waste sampling/analysis, the size of the landfill for
which the study was performed and how many seasonal sampling periods you
used. Any forthcoming information is greatly appreciated. >>
