The report presents a recycling study that was conducted to develop three sets of data on source-separated materials and refuse. One set includes the relative percentages of 14 recoverable components in source-separated, refuse, and total residential waste streams. The second set documents recovery rates, or the percentage of each component that is source-separated. The third set includes moisture content and heat content of source-separated materials and refuse. Appendices include program background, composition analysis methodologies, component analysis sample data, and moisture analysis data.
