The report is the most recent in a series of reports released by the EPA to characterize Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in the United States. It characterizes the national waste stream based on data through 1988 and includes: information on MSW generation from 1960 to 1988; recovery for recycling, composting, and combustion from 1960 to 1988; characterizing MSW by volume as well as by weight; projections for MSW generation to the year 2010; projections for MSW combustion through 2000; and projections (presented as a range) for recovery and recycling through 1995.
