Waste Characterization – Solid Waste Generation Base-Year Study, Lancaster, California
SCS Engineers was retained by Lancaster’s franchised waste hauler to conduct a waste generation study for the purpose of establishing a new base-year for 2005.
After a cursory review of the City’s available waste generation data, including verification of recent third-party audit information and review of the City’s disposal over the past few years, it was determined that correcting the base-year study was necessary. To complete the project in cooperation with the hauler, SCS will:
review disposal and diversion data from the Disposal Reporting System and landfills
diversion analysis, including surveys of recycling facilities, drop-off centers, construction/demolition debris facilities, government agencies, schools and on-site waste audits
construction/demolition debris and greenwaste diversion activities from City projects and facilities
review of municipal collection reports and diversion programs within the City
preparation of certification forms and supporting documentation submitted to California Integrated Waste Management Board
