Follow That Trash

Ever wonder what happens to your garbage once it leaves your curb?

Each year, the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District tracks the movement or “flow” of nearly 1.5 million tons of solid waste from the point of generation to the point of disposal.

This information is published in an annual Waste Flow Analysis that depicts the solid waste management “infrastructure” in Cuyahoga County.  It shows who collects the waste from the curb, and how it moves through transfer facilities and landfills throughout Ohio.
