Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: Facts and Figures
On this page:

- U.S. State and Local Waste and Materials Characterization Reports
Each year, EPA produces a report called Advancing Sustainable Materials Management: Fact Sheet, formerly called Municipal Solid Waste in the United States: Facts and Figures. It includes information on municipal solid waste (MSW) generation, recycling, combustion with energy recovery and landfilling. The fact sheet also includes information on Construction and Demolition Debris generation, which is outside of the scope of MSW.
EPA maintains a list of state and local waste characterization studies; reports are not available for all states. You can search for your state in the table below.
