The objectives of the Household Hazardous Waste Characterization Study (the HHW Study) were to quantify the annual household hazardous waste (HHW) tonnages disposed in Palm Beach County, Florida's (the county) residential solid waste (characterized in this study as municipal solid waste MSW) by material types, on both a net and gross weight basis (new weight consisted of material weight only; gross weight included the material and the containers); quantify the annual HHW tonnages diverted through the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County's household hazardous waste collection facility (HHWCF) on both a net and gross weight basis; and compute HHW diversion rates based on a comparison of disposed and diverted tonnages.
