The report gives results of a detailed emissions characterization study, undertaken to examine, characterize, and quantify emissions from the simulated burning of household waste material in barrels. The study evaluated two waste streams: that of an avid recycler, who removed most of the recyclable content from the waste stream prior to combustion; and that of a non-recycler, who combusts the entire stream of household waste. Estimated emissions were developed in units of mass emitted per mass of waste burned.
