How Much Waste Do We Dispose and Recycle?
For more detailed information on the type of solid waste data submitted to the DEEP see Appendix B of the December 2006 CT State Solid Waste Management Plan.
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) data reported to the DEEP has been used to:
In an effort to make details of the reported municipal solid waste (MSW) and recycling data more accessible to the public, the Department will post data reports (audited and analyzed data) and raw data (unaudited data and preliminary analysis of unaudited data) on this web page as it becomes available.
* Historically, through FY2008, municipal recycling tonnages were based on recycling reports submitted to the Connecticut DEEP by CT municipalities and disposal tonnages were based on reports submitted to the DEEP by CT transfer stations, CT resource recovery facilities, and CT landfills. Starting in FY2009 recycling data regarding bottles, cans, and paper recycled from each municipality will be based mostly on quarterly reports submitted to the DEEP by permitted solid waste facilities.
** Does not include MSW that was disposed directly out-of-state without first passing through a CT solid waste facility.
Miscellaneous Unaudited Connecticut Solid Waste Data
The data presented below reflects unaudited data and preliminary analysis of unaudited data as entered into the DEEP Solid Waste Database and will only be listed below until the data is audited, analyzed, and included in the Connecticut Solid Waste Data Reports (see table above). This data is broken down by 1) the receiving solid waste or recycling facility, 2) by town/city or regional solid waste facility of origin, and 3) by tons received by quarter (i.e. January-March, April-June, September-September, October-December). The fiscal year represents the period July 1st through June 30th. Please note that the Excel files require Microsoft Excel software to view.
