Solid Waste Facilities in California

by herk | May 06, 2017 06:09 06 May 06:09 | #14166 | #14166

Here is a blog post outlining ways to obtain data to display the solid waste facilities in California using CalRecycle Data. I used several well-known data analysis tools such as python (requests, pandas, beautifulsoup) for general web scraping, plotly libraries for graphs, and ArcMap Online to produce the main graphic.

A more in-depth discussion is provided here:

Wonderful overview of the locations of waste facilities in our state! Does this data also include transfer stations listed at CalRecycle?

Is this a question? Click here to post it to the Questions page.

Hi, I was doing a research on California waste management and stumbled upon this work. The issue is the link doesn't work.

What i am working on is i have identified 23 processing facilities and wanted to know the data related to what goes in and what goes at a very granular level.

Let me know if anyone has this data or can point me in the direction.

P.S. I have already gone through CalRecycle website and i don't find the data. For reference please find attached file Data_Required.xlsx

Thanks in Advance,

Stay Safe
