Estimated Non-Residential Disposal in California

Note: This page contains historical data from CIWMB’s statewide goal measurement prior to 2007 that estimated a diversion percentage. For 2007 and subsequent years, CIWMB compares reported disposal tons to population to calculate per capita disposal expressed in pounds/person/day. This new goal measurement system is described in CIWMB’s Goal Measurement: 2007 and Later web page.

*Non-residential disposal was estimated to be 60 percent of statewide total generation.

**Taxable Sales Deflator Index (TSDI) was used to remove inflation from taxable sales amount used in the statewide diversion rate estimates for 2005 and 2006. Prior to 2005, Consumer Price Index (CPI) was used. A preliminary TSDI is used for the statewide diversion rate. Because of this change in calculation methodology, the 2005 and 2006 statewide generation tonnage, diversion rates and disposal per $10 dollars in taxable sales estimates are not directly comparable with 2005 and subsequent year estimates.
