Recycling & Solid Waste

The Recycling and Solid Waste Program of EPA's Pacific Southwest Regional Office (Region 9) promotes waste reduction, recycling, and the safe and effective management of municipal solid waste (also known as garbage).

A report on regional and state recycling rates (PDF) (27 pp, 253K, About PDF) was developed by Columbia University under an EPA grant. National solid waste and recycling rates information is available in EPA's Municipal Solid Waste Characterization Reports.
