Material Types

The type of waste or recycling material that is disposed of. This selection drives important volume to weight ratios for estimated consumption data, and this value is also a key data point in the Vendor Invoice Line Item matching process.

When appropriate, these values coincide with an official EPA Estimated Volume-to-Weight conversion for ESG Reporting.
