DC Department of Public WorksOffice of Waste DiversionThis document was produced by the Department of Public Works and the Interagency Waste Reduction Working Group, infulfillment of reporting requirements per the Sustainable Solid Waste Management Amendment Act of 2014.The Interagency Waste Reduction Working Group is a coalition of DC agency stakeholders charged with creating a path to zerowaste for the District of Columbia. Working Group members shape the implementation of waste programs, provide feedbackand support for waste diversion operations, design and develop cohesive waste diversion education and outreach materials,and support the continued evolution of the District’s waste diversion policies.3

IntroductionThe Department of Public Works, on behalf of the Mayor,is proud to present the Calendar Year 2018 Solid WasteDiversion Progress Report in fulfillment of the annualreporting requirements of the Sustainable Solid WasteManagement Amendment Act of 2014.Zero Waste is defined as diverting 80% or more ofthe city’s solid waste stream away from landfills andwaste-to-energy facilities. This annual report includesdata and information that describes solid waste activityduring 2018 and is intended to track progress that thecity is making in pursuit of this Zero Waste vision.Notable changes have been made to this report’s solidwaste diversion metrics, something made possiblein part by recently estimated citywide data. Specificchanges are discussed in the following sections, as wellas a brief summary of the 2018 results.DiscussionThe Office of Waste Diversion is now capable ofreporting a full calendar years’ worth of solid waste dataacross all sectors of the city. This important milestone ismade possible by the established Solid Waste CollectorRegistration & Reporting System [1] and the developmentof the city’s first citywide Waste Characterization Study(2021).Since 2015, the District of Columbia has been trackingsolid waste diversion performance in line with theDistrict of Columbia Government’s fiscal year (FY)calendar (October 1 – September 30). Moving forward,solid waste data will be reported on a calendar year(CY) basis (January 1 – December 31). This seeminglysmall adjustment will greatly improve the consistencyof this annual report and better align with neighboringjurisdictions’ reporting timelines and those ofestablished District programs and initiatives. Meaningfulimprovements have also been made to the city’s solidwaste diversion metrics. Previous reports have featureda Residential Waste Diversion Rate and a CitywideResidential Waste Diversion Rate. Going forward, thefollowing two metrics will be reported upon and their fullscope is described later in this document; ResidentialWaste Diversion Rate and Citywide Waste DiversionRate.4In addition, the availability of citywide data allows foran estimation of the city’s Per Capita Waste GenerationRate of solid waste. Combined, these three metrics willbe utilized to determine how well the city is performingwith respect to source reduction and waste diversion.The data contained in this report will be used to establishbaselines for solid waste generation and compositionacross the city. These baselines will also be used toquantify greenhouse gas emissions resulting from theDistrict’s solid waste sector, as well as track progressmade towards achieving Sustainable DC[2] and CarbonFree DC goals.Summary of ResultsThe Residential Waste Diversion Rate equaled25.24% for calendar year 2018. At 25.24%, theDistrict falls within the median range for diversionperformance among comparable large, U.S. cities. Intime, this performance metric will be best improvedthrough an expansion of existing residential programs(e.g. material drop-off programs) and increasededucation and outreach regarding how best torecycle and reduce waste generated in the home.The Citywide Waste Diversion Rate is estimated to be16.11% for calendar year 2018. Since almost all large U.S.cities struggle to quantify citywide waste diversion acrossall sectors, residential and commercial, comparisons are,therefore, difficult to come by. In time, this rate will beimproved by focusing on a mix of supportive policies andprograms specific to the commercial and multi-familyresidential sectors since, combined, they constitute thelargest percentage of solid waste generated in the city.The Per Capita Waste Generation Rate is estimated tobe 1.62 tons per resident per year or 8.89 pounds perresident per day for calendar year 2018. These valuesare seemingly higher than comparable, large U.S. cities.This can be attributed to the large number of tourists anddaily commuting employees, which inflate the District’sdaytime population well above the 702,455 residentialpopulation reported for calendar year 2018.A deeper discussion of these results as well as afull disclosure of available calendar year 2018 solidwaste tonnage data and information are presented insubsequent sections.* These metrics should be considered estimates built upona combination of existing data sources and for where datawas not fully available, proxy data. These estimates arepresented with a high degree of confidence.

CITYWIDEBREAKDOWNCitywide Solid Waste Generation & DiversionFor the first time, the District of Columbia can estimateCitywide Waste Diversion beginning with calendaryear 2018. This important milestone will allow the city,as a whole, to track progress towards achieving theZero Waste DC mission and related Sustainable DCgoals. Table 2 [11] provides a breakdown of the amountof solid waste generated across the entire city’s solidwaste stream.Table 2: Citywide Solid Waste Generation[12]Material StreamTonsRefuse881,716.80Mixed Recyclables97,015.65Paper37,647.23Shredded Paper168.19Plastic163.56Textiles746Scrap Metal25,635.83Citywide solid waste includes all solid waste whichthe District of Columbia generates includingwaste derived from residential and non-residential(commercial) sectors.

Since large U.S. cities donot regularly calculate a citywide waste diversionrate, comparisons are difficult to make. With theestablishment of this performance metric, the Districtof Columbia aims to assert itself as a leader in trackingprogress towards Zero Waste.Electronics1,433.53Paint[14]195.65[15]Per Capita Waste Generation Rate for the year isestimated to be 1.62 tons per resident per year or 8.89pounds per resident per day. These values place theDistrict of Columbia at the very high-end of the range ofwhat other U.S. cities have typically reported. This canbe attributed to the fact that the District of Columbia’sdaytime population swells during the day with the influxof daily commuters and tourists.[13]TiresLeavesHoliday Trees247.35,625.49481.03Food Waste4,736.34Yard Trimmings8,874.99Other Green WasteOther HouseholdHazardous 2Population702,455Annual Tons Per Capita1.62Daily Lbs.

Citywide Solid Waste Disposal by DestinationTable 3 contains all of the available solid waste disposal data across the city’s entire waste stream. It is importantto note that there is a gap between the amount of the solid waste referenced in Table 2, and the amount of solidwaste reported to be disposed of in Table 3. This gap is the result of citywide solid waste disposal data not yet beingfully captured in the Solid Waste Collector Registration & Reporting System. Increased enforcement efforts on thepart of the Department of Public Works’ Office of Waste Diversion and the Solid Waste Education & EnforcementProgram (SWEEP) will increase reporting compliance and reduce the number of “hidden” tons. This effort, pairedwith building stronger partnerships with neighboring states in the mid-Atlantic region, will help the District betteraccount for citywide waste generation and disposal.Table 3: Citywide Solid Waste Disposal by Destination[18]Facility NameFacility TypeFacility AddressTonnageLorco Petroleum ServicesBiofuelUnknown[19]5.1Revolution Bio FuelsBiofuel2162 Kerchner Lane, Seven Valleys, PA 1736027.6Biofuel SubtotalACME Biomass ReductionInc.Composting21601 New Hampshire Avenue, Brookeville, Maryland20833Brookville Landfill SupplyComposting8913 Brookville Road, Silver Spring, MD 20901Community Composting(DPR)CompostingMultiple Locations[20]314D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc.

ENDNOTES1. All solid waste collectors who operate in the District of Columbia are required to register and report annually with the Office of WasteDiversion in the Department of Public Works in accordance with DC Official Code § 8-1031.05 and DC Official Code § 8-1031.06.2. Residential Waste includes data for the entire DPW serviced, single-family residential sector plus drop-off programs that are open to allresidents (including multi-family residents) across the District of Columbia.4. Includes DPW drop-off eCYCLE DC from both single and multi-family residential.5. Approximately 50% of this material was sent for diversion.6. 67.66% of paint collected via PaintCare was recycled or diverted.7. Includes textiles from both single and multi-family residential collected at distributed drop-off bins across the city (e.g. Planet Aid).8. Includes material derived from DPW's food waste drop-off program.9. Includes landscaper material collected within single-family residential.10. Since this rate includes only multi-family residential streams, DPW has quality data for 2018. The actual rate will likely be lower once allresidential streams are accounted for and included in future years.11. 834,553.03 tons in Table 3 versus 1,139,846.12 tons in Table 2. The District can currently account for roughly 73% of the estimatedcitywide solid waste stream.12. Citywide solid waste includes all solid waste which the District of Columbia generates, including waste derived from residentialand non-residential (commercial) sectors. Where calendar year 2018 data was not available, extrapolations were made using relevantyears tonnages and population as proxies.13. It is assumed that 50% of tires were recycled.14. 67.66% of paint collected via PaintCare was recycled or diverted.15. This number is lower than the 204.29 tons reported in Table 1 A. This is due to an update from PaintCare after the Waste CharacterizationStudy was developed.16. 50% of this material was sent for diversion.17. The National Average per U.S. EPA in 2018 was 4.9 pounds per person per day in 2018.18.
