Dear Kevin Horstman,

Chicago and Atlanta are cities, so if you want state statistics, I'll give you Illinois and Georgia. Unclear as to the LA you wanted is Los Angeles or Louisiana, so I'll give you both CA and LA:

State Tonnage Disposed Recycled %

CA 45 million tons 30%
FL 23.6 40%
GA 14.6 33%
 (GA statistics include industrial C D waste)
LA 3.9 14%
MA 7.1 33%
IL 13.4 28%
  (This is older data)
NY 28.8 39
