Commercial and institutional, or industrial, waste is often a significant portion of solid waste, even in small cities and suburbs. In contrast to most residential waste, commercial material is usually collected by the private sector, and municipalities have been slower to target this waste stream for recovery. EPA has developed several topical websites that help communities effectively manage their commercial and industrial waste and successfully meet high waste recovery goals.
These specific materials and information resources are covered in this section:
- Industrial Waste Guidelines
- Construction & Demolition Materials
- Special Wastes
- Medical Waste
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Streams
