 Mixed Trash (Separated into ‘Wet Waste’ and also the more ‘Typical Mixed Waste’) .

 

Wet Waste is associated more with Food Prep, Food Service and/or Restaurant type facilities where the percentage of wet waste is higher than normal (Of course, the degree of how wet the waste is depends upon the overall amount of other trash that is being mixed in with the wet waste which helps to neutralize the liquid content or ratio).
