CalRecycle provides a number of reports and information to assist local government (as well as businesses) to reduce disposal, conserve resources, and help California meet its waste reduction goals. Please visit Local Government Central to find reports under specific topic areas. The following links take you directly to the reports that are available:
Local Jurisdiction Diversion Program Reports
- Annual report, electronic (EAR). CalRecycle staff developed this tool with local government users in mind. It enables jurisdictions to fill out and submit their annual reports from the convenience of their Internet-connected personal or workplace computer.
- Diversion Programs System Diversion Program Reports on Web. The Diversion Program reports page gives reports about a jurisdictions programs, status, and a summary of waste diversion programs. Definitions of Diversion Programs Terms and Codes aid understanding of the reports.
- Five-Year Review Report Template (Form). The purpose of this template is to document compliance with these regulatory review and reporting requirements. The county or regional agency may use this template as a tool in its review, including obtaining Local Task Force (LTF) comments, on areas of the CIWMP or RAIWMP that need revision. See Five-Year Review Report Guidelines for more information.
Diversion and/or Disposal Rate Reports
- California's Statewide Disposal Since 1989 (Graph). This graph shows historical statewide per resident, per employee, and total disposal amounts for California since 1989.
- California's Estimated Statewide Diversion Rates Since 1989. This graph shows historical statewide estimated diversion rates for California. 1989 through current reporting year. Diversion rates are calculated using the Adjustment Method (old system). 2007 and later diversion rate equivalents are from the new Per Capita Disposal and Goal Measurement system.
- The Countywide, Regionwide, and Statewide Jurisdiction Diversion Progress Report (CRiS report) provides both summary and detailed information on jurisdiction review status, diversion rates, and waste diversion program implementation for all California jurisdictions. Users can group jurisdictions by county, by specific geographic regions, or by the entire state. Users can further customize reports by selecting criteria such as report year, diversion rate range, and/or jurisdiction review status.
- Disposal Rate Calculator. This calculator allows you to determine the Calculated Disposal Rate (pounds/person/day) for a jurisdiction.
- Household Hazardous Waste: View reports by choosing Explore HHW Reporting Data to compare pounds of HHW collection and disposition by year, material type, reporting agency, program types, etc. and export to Excel for further analysis. Historical data is also available in Excel format by selecting Form 303 HHW Data Archive.
Jurisdiction Diversion/Disposal Rate Summary. Beginning with reporting year 2007 jurisdiction annual reports, diversion rates are no longer determined. With the passage of SB 1016, the Per Capita Disposal Measurement System, only per capita disposal rates are measured. For 2007 and subsequent years, CalRecycle compares reported disposal tons to population to calculate per capita disposal expressed in pounds/person/day. This new goal measurement system is described in CalRecycle’s Goal Measurement: 2007 and Later web.
- Jurisdiction Review Reports. A report a jurisdiction would use to determine disposal, goal measurement, and other summary information.
- Recycling and Disposal Reporting (RDRS) Reports List The data shown in these reports reflect the most current information contained in RDRS. These data are subject to change if reporting entities submit revisions to their quarterly reports. These data have not been verified by CalRecycle staff and represent what reporting entities submitted to CalRecycle in their quarterly RDRS submissions. Local governments should work with reporting entities to identify errors and encourage them to correct reporting errors and produce accurate information. Reporting entities must report accurately as required by statute and regulation. Local governments may review some reporting entity records pursuant to Public Resources Code, section 41821.5(g).
- Disposal Reporting System (DRS) Web Reports The following Disposal Reporting System (DRS) reports are based on information reported by permitted facility operators and compiled by county/regional agency disposal reporting coordinators. NOTE: With the transition to the RDRS Reporting System, the DRS data and mapping information is still available through 2019, no further data will be added or updated to these tables or maps beginning with 2020 calendar year disposal.
- Jurisdiction Disposal and ADC Tons by Facility This report provides the annual estimates of the disposal amounts for jurisdictions in California as reported by County/Regional Agency disposal reporting coordinators. The report shows the total amount disposed by the jurisdiction at each disposal facility for a requested year. NOTE: With the transition to the RDRS Reporting System, the DRS data and mapping information is still available through 2019, no further data will be added or updated to these tables or maps beginning with 2020 calendar year disposal.
- Statewide Disposal Amounts. Disposal Import, Export, Alternative Daily Cover (ADC) and Alternative Intermediate Cover (AIC) Tonnage chart for annual solid waste disposal. NOTE: With the transition to the RDRS Reporting System, the DRS data and mapping information is still available through 2019, no further data will be added or updated to these tables or maps beginning with 2020 calendar year disposal.
- The Waste Characterization Database. The database provides estimates of the types and amounts of materials in the waste streams of individual California jurisdictions in 1999. This database is designed to provide local governments with a tool to look at what's being disposed in their waste streams to help them plan how to divert materials from disposal and conserve resources. It looks at disposed waste only, so materials that are typically recycled are not included in this data.
