This study looks exclusively at residential waste generation rates on Long Island and does not include commercial waste or construction and demolition debris. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and recycling data was collected from seven towns on Long Island, one in Nassau County and six in Suffolk County. Together, these towns represent about 75% of Long Island’s population.
