Component Composition of MSW

Table 10.3.1 lists the representative component composition for MSW disposed in the United States and adjacent portions of Canada and shows ranges for individual components. Materials diverted from the waste stream for recycling or composting are not included. The table is based on the results of twenty-two field studies in eleven states plus the Canadian province of British Columbia. The ranges shown in the table are annual values for county-sized areas. Seasonal values may be outside these ranges, especially in individual municipalities.
