Waste Facility Data

Waste Business Journal researchers call a wide variety of waste processing and disposal operations throughout the US and Canada to gather detailed data about their operations.

In addition to answering questions about who owns and operates the facility, we want to know what types of waste are accepted, how much and what price is charged for their acceptance. Furthermore, we ask and compile data on the types of equipment employed in the processing of the waste, recovery of materials and in pollution control.

Among the many types of facilities for which we compile data:

  • Landfills
  • Construction and Demolition Landfills
  • Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs)
  • Waste-to-Energy (Burn) Plants (W-T-E)
  • Transfer Stations
  • Composting Facilities
  • Special waste processing facilities, and more...

The type of information we gather:

  • Location and type of facility
  • Names, addresses and phone numbers for both owners and operators
  • Types of waste accepted
  • Volumes of waste by type accepted daily and yearly
  • Tipping fees or prices charged for each type of waste accepted
  • Operating and processing capacity (in tons per day, year or both)
  • Remaining permitted disposal capacity (landfills)
  • Types of equipment installed
    • Landfill gas collection, processing and conversion
    • Landfill liner system
    • Landfill leachate collection and processing
    • Landfill surface and ground water monitoring systems
    • Landfill daily cover material
    • Landfill final cover material and capping design
