F. Measuring Shelby County waste reduction:

       
1,099,187 tons (A) All waste to BFI Landfills ('98 = 1,191,648.55)
3,375 tons (B) All waste to Wood Processing ('98 = 6,625)
+ 40,619 tons (C) Waste hauled outside Shelby County ('98 = 47,372.81)
1,143,181 total tons from Shelby County ('98 = 1,245,646.36)
- 33,500 tons (D) Special/Industrial Waste ('98 = 44,461.00)
1,109,681 tons ('98 = 1,201,185.36)
- 70,581 tons (E) Outside waste hauled INTO Shelby County ('98 = 144,692.61)
1,039,100 total tons generated from Shelby County ('98 = 1,056,492.75)

G. Calculating Shelby County's waste reduction:
(There is no explanation of how to figure the reduction in the 1999 Update guidelines)

POP. TONS GEN. PER CAPITA REDUCTION
1995 (base) 865,058 1,381,297.10(?) 1.59
1999 (goal) 868,825(?) 1,036,075 1.1925 25%
1999 (actual) 868,825(?) 1,039,100 1.1959 24.78%

Note:

  1. Our 1989 tonnage was 1,362,405
  2. Our actual (reported) tons in the 1995 Update was 1,076,757
  3. No population figures for 1999 were provided by the State, therefore the numbers presented are those used in the 1998 Update for calendar year 1998.

FORMULA FOR DETERMINING REDUCTION PERCENTAGE

(1999) 1.59 tons - 1.1959 tons = .3941 divided by 1.59 tons = .2478 x 100 = 24.78% reduction

(1998) 1.65 tons - 1.2160 tons = .4340 divided by 1.65 tons = .2630 x 100 = 26.30% reduction
