Abstract: This paper describes the development and subsequent application of econometric models to generate disaggregate predictions of residential waste loads. Both time and waste load estimates were developed, and districting plans generated from sample data for the Town of Brookline, Mass. Included are descriptions of the character of the system, the waste generation models, and sample districting outputs.
