Municipal Solid Waste: United States

Municipal Solid Waste: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US generated, recovered, and discarded municipal solid waste (MSW) in short tons. MSW generated, recovered, and discarded are each segmented in terms of: packaging, durables, nondurables, food, yard, and miscellaneous inorganics (generated and discarded only).

To illustrate historical trends, total generated, recovered, and discarded MSW as well as the various segments are provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018.

The volume of recovered miscellaneous inorganic waste (e.g., cat box litter) is negligible and excluded from recovered volumes. MSW spans collection from residential, commercial (e.g., retail stores and offices), and institutional (such as schools and hospitals) sources. Construction, hazardous, and industrial waste are excluded from the scope of this report. Throughout this report, measures in tons refer to short tons.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
