Carbon Calculator

This calculator estimates the greenhouse gas emissions (metric tons CO2e) associated with your materials' end-of-life and the avoided emissions from recycling. The calculation also estimates the tailpipe emissions during collection.

What type of customer are you?
Est. Yearly Emissions Generated (Metric Tons CO2e)

Emissions generated via transport and decomposition of waste in a landfill. Fewer emissions are generated by recycling and composting.

Est. Yearly Emissions Avoided (Metric Tons CO2e)1

1Represents the full life‐cycle benefits associated with avoiding the extraction, manufacturing or processing, transportation, and end of life management of new materials.

2Emissions avoided through recycling and organics diversion are equivalent to the emissions that would be avoided by preventing the described use of either coal or gasoline.

Our methodology uses the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories, the EPA’s Volume-to-Weight Conversion Factors, and the EPA’s Waste Reduction Model (WARM) v15. This calculator presents emissions based on models, not measurements. Therefore, the values provided shall not be used to report an exact quantification of your emissions. The values above represent the emissions released or avoided by one year of the selected services.
