[GRRN] state wasting rates

I have heard that some states have experienced an increase in the amount
of tonnage being landfilled and incinerated (both per capita and
absolute figures). Georgia is one of these states. Does anyone have
data on other states that are experiencing an increase in "wasting"?
And what about the reverse? Which states have seen per capita and total
tonnage landfilled and incinerated decrease in recent years?

Any help is most appreciated.
