The report is the most recent in a series of reports released by EPA to characterize municipal solid waste in the United States. It characterizes the national waste stream based on data through 1990 and includes information on: MSW generation from 1960 - 1990; MSW management (recovery for recycling and composting, combustion, and landfilling) from 1960 to 1990; characterizing MSW by volume as well as by weight; projections for MSW generation to the year 2000; projections for MSW combustion through 2000; and projections (presented in 3 recovery scenarios) for materials recovery for recycling and composting through 2000.
