The Environmental Protection Agency has collected and reported data on the generation and disposal of waste in the United States for more than 40 years. We use the information to measure the success of municipal solid waste (MSW) reduction and recycling programs across the country. The data also shows us where we, as a nation, need to make environmental improvements. Because we only report this information every two years, these facts and figures are current through calendar year 2005. Both 2004 and 2005 data are reported here for the first time.
