Disposal Reporting System

The Disposal Reporting System (DRS) is the set of guidelines that tracks the origin of waste disposed in California’s landfills, and waste sent from California to out-of-state landfills. DRS tracks disposal tonnages (including alternative daily cover (ADC), alternative intermediate cover (AIC), and beneficial reuse) and transformation sent to facilities in the state.

The electronic Disposal Reporting System (DRS) was created to capture, store, and display disposal information submitted to CalRecycle. 

Web-based DRS reports are available through CalRecycle’s website. To access the DRS database, county and jurisdiction staff must go through the Local Government Information Center (LoGIC).
